Lena Moses is a certified Labor and Postpartum Doula, Childbirth Educator and Reiki Practitioner. Originally from Scottsdale, AZ, Lena worked for years as an Early Childhood educator and administrator. Lena earned her bachelor’s in psychology and Masters in Adult Education before heading to Arlington, Texas for 5 years. Through the births of her two daughters, Lena fell in love with the birthing community, quickly realizing that doula work was her calling. Lena worked with North Dallas Doula Associates while in Texas and then decided to head home to open Phoenix Doula Associates here in the valley.
Lena offers calm, nonjudgmental support and believes wholeheartedly in holding space for pregnant people and their loved ones during this sacred, vulnerable and empowering time. Lena is attuned and trained in Usui Reiki and can bring this healing and peaceful energy into birth and postpartum care at the family’s request. Lena’s extensive experience and training in Early Childhood Education makes her a perfect fit for helping younger siblings ease into the transition of sharing space with a newborn. Lena also holds a special place in her heart for cesarean section families and VBAC families.
Family is what’s most important to Lena. She is happiest when she is with her husband, two girls and her lab. Lena also loves the Performing Arts (she’ll sing you a showtune free of charge), hiking, reading, fitness classes, essential oils and volunteering within her community.
