Samantha Nebiolo, Full Spectrum Doula. A former high school counselor. After my second child was born I decided to remain a stay at home mother. By the time I was pregnant with my third child, I was pretty certain that becoming a doula was right for me. My own doula took me under her wing for mentorship and after attending one birth with her I was hooked! I approach each birth with awe, reverence, and fascination. Since then I became a Madriella Certified Birth Doula. I work out of central Connecticut as a post partum and birth doula in a group of three wonderful women. I have been learning more in depth about ayurvedic meal planning for post partum moms and multicultural full spectrum doula care. It is a great honor to help new mothers and do this important work of shifting maternal outcomes. Contact
