"Entera" is a Spanish word meaning whole, or complete, which represents my philosophy of caring for individuals and families throughout the perinatal period. I provide counsel and support from fertility and preconception through pregnancy, labor and birth, and the postpartum period. As a full-spectrum doula I support the mission of equal healthcare for all by serving individuals and families from all religious backgrounds, classes, racial and ethnic groups, education levels, sexual orientations, genders, and abilities, in all manner of family arrangements. I feel especially drawn to serve folks living at the intersection of marginalized identities. I provide care through all possible pregnancy outcomes and choices including miscarriage, fatal diagnosis or stillbirth, chosen or therapeutic termination, adoption plans, and surrogacy. Please contact me to discuss birth doula support packages or pricing for adoption, abortion, or perinatal loss support by following the button below.
There is no amount of training that can serve as an equal substitute for experience. You will remember your birth forever. Invest in your peace of mind and in memories you will enjoy for the rest of your life!
Teresa was fantastic to work with. She was the perfect blend of creative and 'crunchy' with a no nonsense / evidence based streak. She was supportive and warm to both myself and my partner. She was great to have in the hospital, by my side, and in the before/after home visits. -
I live in Billerica, MA and serve families in the greater Boston area, Merrimack Valley Region, and Southern NH. I will attend births at locations within a 1 hr drive (including at peak travel hrs). For clients delivering within my service area, but who live outside this radius, virtual support can be offered for prenatal visits and early labor support.
I have attended births at Mount Auburn Hospital, CHA Cambridge Hospital, Newton Wellesley Hospital, Mass General Hospital, Winchester, Emerson, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Brigham and Women's Hospital, UMass Memorial, The North Shore Birth Center, Melrose Wakefield Hospital, Beverly Hospital, South Shore Hospital, Landmark, The Birth Cottage in NH, Cambridge Birth Center, and Catholic Medical Center in Nashua New Hampshire. I have also attended families in home births.
