About your Birth Doula

 

Pregnancy VBAC Monterey Bay Birth Doula Placenta Encapsulation Breastfeeding Post Partum Counselor Consultant Seaside Pacific Grove Carmel Monterey Doula Salinas

Hi there, my name is Yvonne Gray and I am a birth doula, lactation counselor and educator serving Monterey County and beyond. I was born and raised in Germany. In 2000 I started working as an AuPair and my life in the US began in beautiful Maryland which is also where I also met my husband. My personal journey into motherhood started with an unplanned cesarean and some breastfeeding challenges. Once I surrounded myself with an amazing support system, I was able to finally succeed and have a home birth after three cesareans. Yup, that’s right. I was told many many times this would NOT be possible!!! But I did it, and now I know that nothing is out of reach.

So for the past 6 years it has become my mission to support other women to overcome or even avoid any obstacles while transitioning into motherhood. Birth should not be something we fear but rather something we look forward to.
