Golden Gate Doulas are pleased to have Doula Thais Hand as part of our postpartum team! She is a natural with newborns and loves to share all her tips and tricks with new parents. 

With her extensive background in teaching as a child tutor, Thais understands how to relate to people and facilitate relationships. Her love for children inspired her to become a part of our powerhouse team of doulas.

Also a mother to a 3-year old autistic daughter, Thais is very passionate about working and helping children with disabilities. She has studied applied behavior analysis in order to help her daughter build the necessary skills for her to thrive in life.

Thais has also previously worked at a genetic testing lab providing prenatal screening support to families.

Thais enjoys working with families, helping them adjust in their postpartum journey. She has a calm and reassuring personality, works well under pressure, and she is easy to get along with. Thais can't wait to be a helpful resource to your growing family!​
