Birth & Postpartum Doula Profile - Erin Ronder Neves
Erin Ronder Neves, Birth and Postpartum Doula
Erin Ronder Neves is thrilled to join Birthing Gently. She honors the sacred space surrounding pregnancy, labor, delivery, and the postpartum period. She considers it a great privilege to be invited to share this special time with families. Erin strives to validate and fulfill a family’s birth preferences through support, education, and personal empowerment.
Erin’s interest in pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period began with her own journey into parenthood in 2013, and she decided to become a doula after the birth of her second daughter in 2016. For this birth, Erin hired Birthing Gently for birth and postpartum doula support. Erin is so grateful for the opportunity to be able to give back to the Birthing Gently community and support other families. She aspires to give birthing individuals and families the space to be themselves during this beautiful, miraculous and vulnerable time. Erin's compassionate bedside manner, ability to be an active listener, and sensitive soul allow for deep connections with the birthing person, their partner and family.
Erin is no stranger to the learning curve of parenthood, therefore she is committed to helping new families find their true north on this life-changing journey. She is dedicated to providing non-judgmental support for your choices throughout pregnancy, labor, delivery, and beyond. Erin's focus is a satisfying birth experience for YOU led by YOU and YOUR beliefs, culture, and wishes. Erin’s natural intuition, expansive knowledge, and instinct provide a supportive, nurturing environment that fosters confidence, self- advocacy, and love.
In addition to loving all things baby-related, Erin enjoys acting, dancing, singing, teaching theater to students of all ages, working with the neurodiverse community, attending the theater, reading, volunteering at the library, practicing and teaching yoga, spending time with her amazing daughters, laughing with her husband, and snuggling with her yellow Labrador, Bruce Wayne. (Yes, named after Batman.)
