Margarita is Co-Founder, Early Childhood Consultant, and Birth Doula at Third Coast Birth. Her career before having children was in child development and early childhood education. She became a birth doula after the birth of her second child, when she decided that she wanted to expand the way in which she works with families of young children. She is excited to have partnered with Shawna to combine the worlds of birth work and early childhood in order to create a comprehensive support system for Chicago area families.
Her favorite part of being a doula is witnessing a laboring mama find the strength within herself that she didn’t know existed, as she births her baby.
