Cecelia grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. In 2006 she moved to Pennsylvania to attend Swarthmore College and became connected to the Philadelphia area. After exploring work in several different fields including teaching English, working in a Haitian orphanage, teaching middle school, and nannying, she was introduced to doula work by her friend Hana Lehmann. She found doula work to be a an exciting combination of her passions for education, advocacy, and nurturing young families and trained through DONA international to become a birth and postpartum doula. In addition to being a Birth Doula, she also works as a childbirth educator at Lifecycle WomanCare, formerly The Birth Center, in Bryn Mawr, PA where she teaches Preparation for Childbirth classes for first-time parents.
Cecelia lives in Philadelphia, and in her spare time she enjoys reading everything she can get her hands on, cooking for friends, coaxing a garden from her Philadelphia backyard, crocheting, and playing the cello.
Cecelia is taking a break from doula work after welcoming her own baby this past Spring.
