Birth terrain inherently comes with unexpected twists and turns and I help you and your birth partner design a roadmap to meet them prepared and confident. In my practice, I utilize a multi-dimensional approach that promotes a healthy pregnancy and baby. We'll integrate a combination of relaxation techniques, comfort measures, mindset practices and wellness modalities with existing tools you already possess to customize a plan just for you. One that reflects your values, celebrates your strength and ensures your physical and energetic needs are met. Together, we’ll also create a holistic postpartum plan that emphasizes healing, rest, nourishment and space to bond with your baby.
Within five minutes of meeting Lenore, I knew she had to be my Doula, she had the exact temperament that I knew I would need when I was ready to give birth. She is kind, gentle, but means business- my kind of woman! She knew exactly what I needed before even having to communicate it. The O.B and nurses were very impressed by her work. ~Andy

Postpartum Doula: In order to continue providing support for my existing clients, I am now offering single 4-hr sessions to assist with all things postpartum and infant feeding. These sessions can emphasize,

  • Creating and putting into motion your postpartum support plan
  • Providing information and resources to assist you with your physical postpartum recovery
  • Focusing on your emotional well-being by providing a safe, judgment-free space to talk, process, and connect
  • Troubleshooting infant feeding issues such as latch, positioning, and other basic questions
  • Assisting with setting up breast pumps, establishing pumping routines, and answering other “how to” pumping questions
  • Providing guidance and education with formula feeding as well as other infant feeding questions
  • Education on basic infant care, including demonstrations on soothing, comforting, bathing, and diapering
  • Nourishing meal preparation with a focus on physical recovery and healing, restoring hormonal balance and promoting a healthy milk supply.

1:1 Coaching Sessions: For those who may not need full doula services, but still need access to knowledge and support that they can trust, consultations are available. You have my undivided attention and can ask me about anything pregnancy,  birth and postpartum.

Placenta Medicine: Increased energy, enhanced milk supply, hormone balancing and accelerated healing are all potential wellness benefits of placenta consumption in early postpartum. Placenta services include

  • Curbside hospital pick-up of the placenta
  • The full placenta preparation and encapsulation process
  • Proper usage and storage instructions
  • Delivery of the finished placenta pills within 2-3 days from the time of pickup

Birth Story Medicine: Inspired by my work with Pam England’s Birth Story Medicine® program, these healing sessions are a space where I deeply listen to your story to help you untangle and reweave it. Our time together cannot change what happened but is carefully designed around your particular story and will help you find what you need to create freedom to move forward in your life with a greater sense of peace.

Sessions take place virtually in the comfort of your home.

New Moon Circles: A special self-care ritual just for you that is tied to the power and magic of the moon. These community circles  are a space for you to move intentionally through these new beginnings with other like-minded pregnant people. We will gather every new moon to reflect, meditate, journal and expand awareness around  your pregnancy and what can be as you bring your baby toward the light.

My approach

I’m Lenore and the doula behind Luna Birth and Wellness. Originally from Queens, New York with ancestral roots traveling back to Italy, I currently live in the Bay Area with my amazing husband and our two wonderful sons. I found my way to birthwork - or rather birthwork found me - at the crossroad between a dream and a wish. Years of hoping to be a parent one day, I had one of those real-life feeling dreams with an encrypted message. Months later after completing my certification and attending my first birth I made the connection. When I’m needing to be nourished, I seek out places where I can find some stillness and peace. You’ll usually find me in the redwoods or with the ocean waves. Otherwise, I’m most likely talking to my plants, sampling new recipes, going on local day adventures with my sweet, energetic toddler or stargazing under the moon. In fact, the moon has influenced and guided me for years and I’m excited to incorporate her into some of my new offers. Thank you so much for being here. Like the moon, it’s time to let your light shine.
