I’m a San Francisco based, Latinx Birthworker, certified Herbalist, Reiki practitioner, Yoga instructor and owner of Birthroot.I offer holistic birth and postpartum support throughout the Bay Area. Birthroot is a Doula company that is honored to work with all birthing people but centers the experiences of BIPOC, LGBTQ and disabled folks, under a reproductive justice framework. Whether I am working with you prior to, during, or after birth, my goal is to guide you through a transformational experience as a mirror of your own innate strength and grace. In honor of what is best for you and your family, I offer informational, emotional, physical and advocacy support. I am in awe of my journey and am humbled to work beside you as you bring life into this world!
As soon-to-be first time parents, we did all we could to read about pregnancy and the birth process but nothing comes close to having a Doula like Brianna to ask questions and have discussions with. Her genuine humor coupled with knowledge and passion made her a perfect fit for what we were looking for. Ultimately, it’s hard to imagine the birth of our daughter without Brianna’s support. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for that support and guidance.

My approach

As a Doula, I am blessed with the opportunity to combine my love and respect of the human body with my mission to provide support to all on a sliding scale basis. I came to this work after spending many hours sitting in meditation, ceremony and calling in clarity around my life’s purpose. I was traveling abroad, working three jobs, teaching Yoga and freelance contemporary dancing in San Francisco when I hit an emotional roadblock. Simply put, I was burnt out. While working as a professional dancer, my appreciation of the human body and its innate power was deeply affirmed. During this same time, I was inspired by a friend’s process of becoming a Doula and realized how a birth companion witnesses a full spectrum of the human experience. I began to trust that I too could offer my knowledge of Reiki, Yoga, movement and Herbalism to all birthing people, as they journey into parenthood.
