Coral Smith 

Certified Birth Doula

Childbirth Educator, Placenta Encapsulator

Coral is a Dona Trained Birth Doula, Placenta Encapsulator, Child Birth Educator with Lamaze and Mother to a 6 year old daughter named Charlie.  She is a passionate Birth Doula with experience in Twin Pregnancy, Hospital and Home Births, People of Color and the LGBT community.

She began her journey volunteering with Birthways in Berkeley. She loves to continue her education as a birth worker by attending various doula related seminars including: Comforting Touch course with Yiska Obadia, Breastfeeding Courses, Baby Wearing Education,  Rebozo Training, and Acupressure Points for labor. She has additional training in caring for women with previous trauma whether it be sexual assault or birthing trauma.  Coral loves to incorporate the use of touch and massage during labor and has a gift for finding those much needed achy spots and melting away the discomfort during labor. 

One of the things that Coral loves about being a birth doula is that she has the opportunity to educate and explore your options with you during pregnancy and labor so you are able to make educated decisions throughout your birth journey. 

Ludmilla De Souza

Certified Day/Night Postpartum Doula 

Infant Care Specialist

Ludmilla, or as her friends call her, "Ludgy" has been working with newborn babies and families for over 11 years. In 2003, she moved to San Francisco from Brazil as a teen and completed her education in the United States. She is so at ease with helping new families that it was a natural transition into supporting families as a nanny in early 2008.  Ludgy found that one of her greatest passions was to help families transition into parenthood with their newborns and helping them gain the confidence they needed to confidently care for their child.  Once she discovered what a postpartum doula's role was, she knew she had to follow that passion and become a full time doula. She trained and became a certified postpartum doula through Cornerstone Doula Training in the East Bay so she could follow her dream of supporting new families.  Ludgy will answer your questions while she provides you with non-judgmental support you and your baby deserve.
