Hello! My name is Cristina LeonGuerrero; I am the founder and operator of Doula Bula. Often I get asked where the name is generated from... Since a child, my family has always called me "Bula" with no real meaning or reasoning. At age 30, they still call me Bula, including nieces, nephews, and new friends. Fun Fact: Bula is the most common word you'll hear right across Fiji, and it is used to greet people or say hello. When you say Bula to someone, you actually wish them life, which is why I found it so fitting for my new endeavor.
I am a wife of 10+ years, momma to 3 beautiful "babies," and Gestational Surrogate to 3 belly buddies. I love supporting and educating others about birth, and it was through my own birth experiences, I found my true calling.
In 2018 I began my training, developing many certificates and skills along the way. Since launching my business in 2019, I’ve encapsulated over 500 placentas, attended 20 births, and supported 5 postpartum families, as well as proudly supported multiple same-sex families. I have a passion for supporting others and feel honored to share my knowledge with parents and families in the area. My services include educational, emotional, and physical support.
I am Harmony Doula Certified, HERBAL Certified Doula (CD); Postpartum Doula; HERBAL Certified Peer Lactation Counselor (PLC); and quadruple certified Placenta Encapsulation Specialist: HERBAL Certified Placenta Preparation Specialist (CPPS); Bloodborne Pathogens Training for Professional Placenta Service Providers (OSHA approved); APPA Trained Placenta Arts Specialist (APPAC) and now COVID certified for safe Placenta handling, Resources and strategies for Placenta Art Specialist. I also continue to stay up to date on the latest information with my lifetime Evidence-Based Birth pro membership.
