Ana Rapoport began practicing as a doula in 2010 after completing her bachelors in Nutrition Science at UC Davis in California. She actively practiced as a doula for three years together with a partner. During this time, she also volunteered as a doula at the San Francisco General Hospital and worked as an educator and contract specialist at the American Red Cross. In 2013 Ana decided to pursue a bachelor’s of nursing degree and moved to New York City to attend Columbia University. Upon completion, she returned to California and accepted a job as a nurse at the American Red Cross and began to work on her master’s degree to become a certified nurse midwife and women’s health nurse practitioner through a program out of Georgetown University. Upon completion of her master’s degree, Ana hopes to work in a hospital as a midwife, continue to be an educator in the field of women’s health, and integrate her passion for yoga and a healthy lifestyle into her work.
Ana is currently accepting postpartum doula clients and teaching birth education to expectant couples in either a private or group setting. To learn more, contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma- which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
