“Birth is an opportunity to transcend. To rise above what we are accustomed to, reach deeper inside ourselves than we are familiar with, and to see not only what we are truly made of, but the strength we can access in and through birth.”
– Marcie Macari
Hi, I'm Celia.
I have always admired birth's intricate design and seen it as a rite of passage. When I became pregnant in 2017, I knew I wanted a peaceful and primal birth experience. With preparation and support, I achieved the birth I had always dreamt of. Just moments after giving birth - having done the hardest work ever in my life - shocked by what my body just did - in awe of this amazing tiny human in my arms - it was the most powerful and connected I have ever felt. This power is what I help people discover for themselves no matter where or how they choose to give birth.
I am a Mother, Doula, Childbirth Educator and HypnoBirthing® Practitioner. And I’m looking forward to working with you to have an ecstatic and empowering birth experience.
"Celia is a wonderful HypnoBirthing teacher. From her warmth and positive energy to her calm demeanor, she is a dependable support system to mothers seeking a natural birthing experience. I couldn't recommend her more as a joyful and enthusiastic sidekick through your pregnancy journey!"
"My partner and I were so very lucky to find Celia and have her as our doula! It was our first pregnancy and I ended up having a very long labor (more than 72 hours!). Prior to birth, Celia prepared both of us with what to expect and helped us to process what was important to us moving forward. During the actual labor, Celia was such a calm and supportive presence. She made sure I was hydrated, that my wife could rest, helped me get into different positions to manage my pain, and so much more! I am very grateful that Celia was there to help us with the most difficult and most amazing experience of my life."
"Working with Celia as our home birth doula was such a gift. She gave my husband the opportunity to get some much needed sleep, eat meals and know that I was in good hands. Her ability to stay grounded in her body allowed my nervous system to follow suit. We both so appreciated her calm and graceful presence and I found that she was so able to help my body clear out tension in between contractions. We had a wonderful experience and highly recommend her!"
Birth has the potential to be the most empowering, joyous and enlivening experience of your life.
With this class, you will feel confident in your birthing abilities, prepared and connected with your birth team, and able to fully embrace each phase of labor.
