yana Yana(in short) Ibrahim is a birth doula, postpartum doula, yoga teacher and personal trainer. She lives in San Francisco with her husband and son. Giving birth to her son and mothering him have been a catalyst for her to train as a Doula. She had a doula at her son’s birth and felt that the experience was both transformative and empowering. Although she did not have the birth that she wanted, all the choices she made during her his birth felt right. She did not feel pushed or judged which was so important for her birthing experience. Yana feels that mothers are constantly judged for the choices they make. Every birth story is different and Yana’s mission is to give mothers the opportunity to “own” and being empowered by their birthing experience. She believes that a mother knows how to give birth to her baby and all she needs is a person to support and comfort her during that journey. Yana will be honored to support and care for you during birth and get your new family off to a great start.
