Olive Rose Doula
Olive Rose Naftzger
San Diego, CA
I am Olive, a birth doula pursuing professional certification through DONA International from Southern California. Currently living in Carlsbad in North County San Diego, I graduated from UCLA in June 2018 with a degree in Gender Studies and Film Studies. My academic career has facilitated an exploration of women's health, empowerment, and social justice balanced with a passion for art and creativity.
I began my journey as a doula at Bini Birth where I learned how to be a support system for mothers and families throughout pregnancy and birth. I am passionate about working with expectant mothers and families as they journey into parenthood and am honored to witness and support their process of self-empowerment.
I believe that every birth is normal and every birth is beautiful. No two births or pregnancies are exactly alike and I embrace and encourage uniqueness and authenticity in birth just as I do in individual personality and style. My aim is not to empower you but to create an environment in which you feel safe and confident to allow the power and natural strength you already have within yourself to shine! It is of the utmost importance to me that the parents that I work with feel unconditionally supported and my guiding principle is one of non-judgement and presence. I am open to any and all desires, preferences, and plans and will work with you and support you in effort to achieve your goals. I believe in the power of the body and its ability to do amazing things when we feel safe and supported. Birth is a natural, normal, and beautiful process that I feel honored to witness and be a part of.
