A certified postpartum doula and trained midwife, Calina brings many talents to her doula work. With years of doula experience framed by completion of several years of midwifery studies at Birthingway Midwifery College, Calina has capped off her education by having her first baby (Tulsie) to give her the full experience of new motherhood. After recovering from a surprise cesarean and some sleepless nights of her own, she was ready to add serving other new moms back into her life and decided to join forces with ABC. Calina also works for Womens Healthcare Associates as a postpartum doula and community health worker.
Calina has a degree in nutrition and loves to create nourishing meals for new mamas to keep them energized and help increase milk supply. Her gentleness and calm demeanor makes her an easy fit to have in your home, as well as her skills with newborns, babywearing, and of course all things practical so mamas can focus on recovering and bonding with their newborns and achieve their breastfeeding goals.
She is also a Certified Educator of Infant Massage and is happy to teach parents not only the benefits but the techniques for baby calming, soothing, digestive help, and helping them sleep peacefully.
Calina is our provider of placenta encapsulation, and brings her doula and midwifery talents to the homes of fresh new families who are looking for the benefits of placenta capsules. She will not only sanitize your kitchen in preparation for the placenta processing, she will leave it sparkling clean afterwards, with a jar of capsules waiting for you.
Make sure while she is there preparing your placenta to ask her any questions you have about your physical recovery, breastfeeding, or newborn adjustment, as she is a wealth of information and experience.
