My name is Michele Falzone, and I use she/her pronouns. I work with pregnant people in Albuquerque and the East Mountains as a full spectrum doula. I provide physical and emotional support for all outcomes of pregnancy, including live birth, adoption, stillbirth, miscarriage, and abortion. My goal as your doula is to support the choices you make and provide compassionate, inclusive, unbiased care. I work with all pregnant people, inclusive of all gender identities, sexual orientations, body types, abilities, socioeconomic class, race, ethnicity, beliefs, and religions. As your doula, I do my best to help harness your inner strength and ensure you are able to fully participate in making decisions about your body, resulting in an overall empowering experience.
Before training as a doula, I worked for over a decade in various women’s health related roles — as a childbirth educator, medical assistant to an OBGYN, program coordinator for a sexual and reproductive health and rights organization, and data manager in a gynecologic oncology research lab. In all of these roles, I have been drawn to work that bridges gaps in health inequities, especially with access to reproductive healthcare. My commitment to reproductive justice has led me to doula work, with the ultimate goal of becoming a midwife.
