Noemi Martinez-Bary

Art of a Doula

I'm a Visual Artist turned Birth Worker, serving families in the Postpartum period.

My two very different birthing experiences, 1full term natural and 1 pre term surgical birth, paths of incredible joy, as well as trauma, started my training, expanded through my own PMAD recovery, and formally trained as a Postpartum Doula with DONA in 2015. After 25+ years as a professional artist, passion about the perinatal period is palpable throughout my artwork. Clearly I belong in the Birth Work world, one where birth is viewed as a vulnerable creative force, just, inclusive, and fueled by courage. I'm honored to serve on the board of DASC, in support of families and birth workers of SoCal. I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, and live in Los Angeles, CA with husband, son, daughter, dog and cat.
