I'm Ana Colombo, my Mother brought me to the United States from Brazil when I was little girl so I could have a chance for a better education and overall better quality life. I'm a daughter and a wife, but my most cherished role is as a mother to 3 wonderful humans that I love with all my heart and soul. I am proud to call California my home and raise my family in America.

Growing up, I noticed that women from all walks of life struggle with the lack of resources and support when it comes to maternal health.  This also became my reality when I was pregnant with my first child.  All three of my births were very different and unique. I have experienced birth by Cesarean and a Vaginal Birth  (VBAC= Vaginal Birth After Cesarean). I feel that these experiences have helped me become a better doula and enhanced my ability to support birth in all the various ways it may come. 

As a postpartum doula, I strive to bring a warm, calming, and supportive presence to any newly transitioning home, as the family adjusts to those first days and weeks after introducing a new baby. I enjoy involving all members of the family to help establish healthy feeding and sleeping routines. I want the new parents to gain knowledge and empower them to become more confident parents. For families adding a new sibling to the family, I enjoy sharing tips on how to make a smooth transition for your growing family.  

As a Birth Doula, I love to help you explore your options so you are able to make safe and educated decisions that you feel comfortable with. It is important to me that we get to know each other prenatally and come up with a practical plan to help you feel supported in all aspects of your birth. I will go the extra mile to help you research all your choices using Evidence Based Information.

One of the highest honors for me as a doula is to witness the birth of the parent, and I will always do my very best to support them in any ways I can.

ana's Postpartum Package

- sheila

"Ana began caring for our son when he was an infant. She is an expert caretaker: nurturing, confident, and knowledgeable. She cared for our son like one of her own, and he adores her. We trusted her completely with our son (and his older sister when necessary). She prioritizes safety and brings a sense of calm, warmth, and routine to young babies and toddlers."

"She is an expert caretaker: nurturing, confident, and knowledgeable."

"We were very grateful to have Ana take care of our baby during the night, allowing us to get some much needed sleep. Feeling rested during the day, we felt much more equipped to take on the many challenges of taking care for a newborn. Ana gave us many helpful tips on how to best care for our child and helped us formulate a sleeping schedule. She advised us on how to stretch his sleeping pattern and streamline the nightly feeds, which made us feel well prepared. She was courteous, friendly and we enjoyed having her come at nights and take care of our baby. She was great with our energetic pup too, which was a plus. :) We also appreciated that she came to meet us in person before starting to work with us. During this first visit she was very professional, asking us lots of questions and taking notes to get a sense of our needs and expectations, and to guide us in our journey as first time parents. Meeting her like this in advance was really reassuring."

"When I was feeling hazy and overwhelmed, Ana was a lifesaver-she was an extra set of hands when I needed them, she helped watch the baby when I needed a nap, and she was so knowledgeable with all my questions about newborn care. From breastfeeding pointers to the best brand of diaper cream, to gentle reminders to drink water, Ana made me feel truly cared for and gave me confidence that I really could do this whole parenting thing."
