International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), Certified Birth & Postpartum Doula, Certified Pediatric Sleep Specialist, and Placenta Encapsulator
Marcella is a seasoned birth professional who owns Born With Love Doulas, but she was once a brand new mother, feeling defeated by her own birth experience, confused about breastfeeding, uncertain about caring for her newborn, herself and figuring out life with a new baby!
She founded Born With Love Doulas in 2012, after the birth of her third child, having finally found out what it was like to feel empowered by ones own birth, what true support was like, and having let go of societal norms and expectations.
Marcella is a Philadelphia native who lives just outside of the city in South Jersey with her family, including 4 children. She has learned so much from the births of her own children, and even as a doula who has helped over hundreds of new parents to date, she knows that having doula support herself, has been invaluable in her positive and empowering birth and postpartum experiences!
The recommendations and opinions from everywhere can be overwhelming! Marcella and her team of doulas can help you understand it all, support you toward your ideals and personal goals for yourself and your new baby, and provide unique support in all the ways new parents need on their postpartum journey.
Our mission is to help new parents become better informed, knowledgeable and empowered to follow their own innate inner voice, to do what works for their unique child and family, to overcome challenges and reach their feeding and parenting goals as well as get some much needed hands on help and restoration along the way!
