ximena RochA, birth doula
Ximena believes “our bodies have everything they need to birth, we just have to trust and tune into ourselves.” She is a New Orleans native and graduated from Tulane with a Masters in Public Health in Epidemiology. Her graduate studies led her to Argentina where she designed and conducted a public health initiative focused on pregnant women’s health in rural areas. She returned to New Orleans and worked in a fertility center, deepening her interest in fertility and birthing. Ximena has a great passion for supporting birthing persons and their partners. She is a BEST-certified doula and sees midwifery as her next step. Ximena takes a flexible approach while supporting families, using positions and movements as well as aromatherapy to help create a comforting birthing experience.
