Valerie began doula work in 2008 where she attended an empowering cesarean birth followed by supporting a couple during an unmedicated birth. She continued to be involved in birth work while living in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and furthered her passion when she moved to Houston where she began her formal training and certification process to be a doula. Moving back to her hometown of San Antonio in the summer of 2015 she brings her experience, knowledge, and wisdom to pregnant, birthing, and postpartum couples in San Antonio.
She is passionate about her career as a certified doula and loves partnering with couples, doctors, and midwives all over San Antonio to bring the best experience to families. Couples who use her services recommend her to their friends and family and practitioners she works with also recommend her to their patients.
Valerie understands that this time in a family’s life is remembered forever and the care a couple receives during this time makes a difference. Her focus is on unparalleled, custom, and top quality doula care.
Valerie partners with you for your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum so that you are empowered, inspired, in control, and fully supported. She works with your family so that you can make the best decisions for yourself that will allow you to rest assured you are getting the best and most up to date information, helps you narrow down the many choices a modern pregnant couple has to decide upon to things that make sense specifically for you, saving you time and resources. Valerie works directly with the mother as well as guiding her partner so that he/she is able to support his/her partner during labor, birth, and postpartum.
Valerie lives in San Antonio, her absolute favorite city, with her husband, Salvador, their four daughters, and their rescued dog, Grant.
