About

Erika

I am a trained birth and postpartum Doula by the Indie Birth Association and Blissful Birthing, TN  and co-founder of Virtual Birth Collective.  I consider myself a Traditional Birth Worker. I was born and raised in beautiful country side, island of Puerto Rico until the age of 12 and have been in Tennessee ever since.

My devotion to birth work started in August of 2019 after the freebirth of my son. I am a natural childbirth advocate who is in this work to walk along women who desire a more hands-off approach to birth. My life experiences have led me to where I am today. Ever since I was a child I have been fascinated by nature and the organic process of life; biology has always been my favorite subject. It has always been in me to help, or be of resource, to guide, or just simply share wisdom. I hold an Associate of Science in Psychology, studied Viniyoga at The Well in Nashville, I also hold an active BLS/CPR certification.

I have experienced three totally different births of my own. My first birth was in 2002, an epidural, OBGYN hospital birth. Second birth in 2016 via induction with a CNM. My last birth in 2019 was a Freebirth / unassisted at home. I believe all these experiences shaped me to be here today as a birth worker and share everything that I have learned with others through lived experiences and training.

I love working with women, children and families, and have always been inspired by the strength of women and the miracle of birth. I am proud to serve families throughout the Middle Tennessee area. I specialized in physiological homebirth and emotional support that benefits women and families during pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum honoring the mother and natural healing.

Every woman deserves to have someone there to guide and assist them in making educated choices about their pregnancy and birth. Also, remind them that they can trust the strength and power their bodies and intuition hold. One of my mission's is to care and support Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) in my community. I understand how it feels navigating the medical institution alone. To learn more about my services, feel free to contact me.

On my spare time I love spending time with my partner and kids, go for hike or a walk around my neighborhood, just being outdoors, coloring, or reading anything birth :)
