« Giving birth can be the most empowering experience of a lifetime – an initiaiton into a new dimension of body-mind awerness »
Ina May Gaskin, Birth matters, 2011
My name is Letícia, I am from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, I am 40 years old, mother, a doula, childbirth educator, and researcher in Medical Anthropology.
Many women become doulas or midwives because they had such a beautiful and empowering birthing so they are excited to spread the word that giving birth can be the most magical event. Others because they had equally powerful and transformative birthing experiences, but in the opposite way; they had a traumatic births. I experienced both sides: bliss and trauma and both have left deep impressions on me. Later, I realized that things would have been much different and more positive with the right preparation and birth support. Through my personal experiences I gained a deep understanding of the importance of a holistic prenatal preparation that integrate mental, emotional and physical aspects. I became a certified Hypnobirthing teacher by the KG Method and I developed further hypnosis techniques for different goals and needs. I also create an approach for take charge of the past emotional wounds and traumas that could interfere on your birthing.
I transformed my trauma in mission and I ended up reorienting my career from being a high school teacher to becoming a Doula and childbirth educator.
From the insights of my own emotional healing process, combined with advanced methods like the ESM and transpersonal psychology - I developed an Emotional Healing approach for both prenatal preparation and post-partum care.
Starting again from zero, leaving the securities of a stable career that I loved was not easy, but I embraced this calling. I feel honoured in helping families to bring their children into this world with confidence and love... and this make all the difference.

Doula support is only for women who wants to have a natural home birth?
We support any birth always respecting any particular health conditions, individual needs and personal choices of the mother. We believe that with the right preparation and support any birth can be better regardless its contexts. Births that will start with an induction, where an epidural is considered or even planned c-section can benefit from the emotional and practical support of a doula. She can help you to plan a gentle birth and be there to support you and make your birth a positive experience.
If I use hypnosis for birth will I loose my mind control or feel disconnected from what is going on?
Not at all! On the contrary, the techniques of self-hypnosis for birth helps you to keep concentrated and in control of your mind and not loose your emotional balance during birth. This deep state of relaxation makes you more connected to what is going on with your body and with your baby. Besides this, I work with the combination of what we can call the mindful-hypnobirthing. The mindfulness meditation approach that will helps you to feel focused on the here and now, while the hypnosis techniques helps you to make a mind reset replacing fear and anxiety for calm and confidence.
How do you deal with complications at birth?
As a hypnobirthing teacher and childbirth educator my focus is on doing a good prenatal work on the emotional and psychological level. By providing evidence based knowledge, by informing you about your choices and rights you will be prepared for making the well informed and conscious choices in any unpredictable circumstances. As a doula I have skills to identify some so-called "complications". My trainning in Spining babies techniques gives me effective tools to cope with certain situations and help labor to progress well again. Quite often many issues are solved with very simple solutions. And if your baby really need medical help to be born, than I will be there with you to support you to go through it in the most gentle way to welcome you baby in joy!
I will already have one or two midwives attending my birthing. Won't be too much getting a doula?
This is very personal. Some women feel they have the necessary support with a midwife and their partner and sometimes their mother or a friend. Others feel they would benefit from a extra professional help. The support of a doula does not overlap with that of a midwife. They have different roles and complementary I would say. Many women say that they like when there is this strong supportive feminine energy during birth. It's like a constellation where each one can give their unique contribution and make a little difference that matters a lot in the end.
