I am Carmen Herlihy, a DONA-certified birth doula. I am also a postpartum doula trained by the San Francisco General Hospital doula program. While working as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in the women's clinic at SFGH, I had the opportunity to become a doula in 2010, and it has been the most rewarding work ever imaginable. I am also a Massage Therapist.
I grew up in Barcelona and speak fluent Spanish, as well as Catalan and French. I feel strongly about wanting to support women, partners, and families in this process of welcoming babies to the world. If you are interested in my services, message or call me - I look forward to helping you.
