My name is Cherrelle Fincher, I’m a wife and a mother. I was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I have been a birth doula for 5 years. I have always had a passion for birth and supporting women. I’ve attended many family births throughout my life. I studied Spanish and Psychology at the University of New Mexico with the intentions of attending Nursing School and becoming a midwife.
During this time, I became certified as a nurse assistant and worked at Presbyterian Hospital for two years. While working in the hospital my heart and passion for helping and supporting women during pregnancy grew tremendously. I decided to attend a doula training and begin working as a birth doula.
During the first year of my doula work, I had a baby of my own. I realized how important it was to eat well and stay active, so I decided to further my career in supporting women and become certified as a pre/postnatal fitness specialist. I believe that staying active prenatally is very beneficial to you and your baby and could definitely play a part in labor and delivery, as well as post-delivery in helping with healing, getting back into shape quicker and reducing the risk of developing diastasis recti.
It has been such a blessing to be able to follow my heart and passion for birth work. I absolutely love helping women take care of themselves so they can better care for their littles. I love bonding with families and creating wonderful friendships. I am very thankful for the opportunity to support women and their families during such a special time.
