Erika Zamora Valle

THW/Medicaid Doula (pending) & Private Pay

Let me introduce myself .

My name is Erika Zamora Valle.

Mexican

My ancestral heritage was formed by a traditional midwife grandmother and a traditional hiervera grandmother, I served at the Gynecology-Obstetrics Hospital and had the opportunity to compare a birth at home and in hospitals.

My dream was to be a Pediatrician but I graduated as a Zootechnical Veterinary Doctor, how curious it really is.

Well, when I arrive in this blessed country, I arrive single. Currently, I have a beautiful family made up of my husband, two girls and a boy.

I have currently been a Doula since 2016 and I am passionate about doing this profession because it allows me to learn about and support the different cultures and traditions of the women and their families that I support.
