At the moment, I am completing my training to become a maternity nurse. Although I am not certified yet, I have recently finished my doula studies in a collaborative course: Para Ser Doula which is endorsed by the Spanish Association of Doulas (Asociación Española de Doulas).
This page is intended to narrate my journey into the world of motherhood while I navigate the waters of entrepreneurship in a foreign country with various language, cultural and medical challenges.

Ana is a born nurturer. She is selfless, kind, and generous of spirit. She is an amazing friend to have in your corner. Ana extends her kindness to all she meets and freely shares her knowledge and passion for the mere satisfaction of hopefully making someone’s life a little better or easing their pain.
It is these attributes that make Ana an amazing friend. She always keeps her word and doesn’t procrastinate. One of Ana’s greatest gifts is that she senses others needs. She doesn’t wait to be asked in order to give assistance. She goes the extra mile to extend herself in your time of need.
