Compassionate Support for Pregnancy & Parenthood

We see you.
You are on the threshold of a transition in your life.

Are you wondering what you need to feel ready to give birth and become a parent? 


We are here to walk the path with you.

We are two women with a passion for exploration and self-discovery. We are mentors and doulas, working with parents and parents-to-be at this time of personal transformation.

As Birthing from Within mentors, we offer a unique approach to preparation for birth and early parenthood. We are also available to attend births as doulas in Central Portugal.

My husband and I could not write more positive words for these two women, Supriya and Roshnii, for the job they did as our doulas and preparing us for our first child, as well as being there in body and soul during the birth. With their wisdom and guidance, along with some very deep questions that made us both think outside the box, we felt extremely prepared for what was to come. I truly don’t know where I would be mentally through all of this without them. Not only did I feel well prepared before the birth but afterwards they were always available to answer questions and give advice as well as cheer me on in times of doubt and their belief in me helped me feel like “I got this”. They are both beautiful souls and I cant suggest them enough for any mother and father on this crazy ride to becoming a parent!  Thank you again ladies! And baby Marlow thanks you too!

Doing the birth mentoring course together with my partner did not only prepare us for labour and parenthood; it also deepened our understanding of eachother in the process of ‘having a baby’. Having a very easy, beautiful and quick waterbirth at home and the most beautiful baby I had ever seen, I praised myself lucky.
Only to end up a week later in the worst emotional state I had ever been. Luckily Supriya and Roshnii prepared us for some babyblues. But this was next level. Supriya jumped in her car and was THERE. Having a profesional to talk to in those weeks, was absolutely invaluable and with her compassion and understanding of motherhood and life, I quickly regained clarity in my head and went on to enjoy my baby and life.
Also Roshnii, her support in the breastfeeding journey made a lot of difference. I now would recommend everyone to have a pospartum Doula, and reach out whenever you need. Those ladies definitely taught me that there is simply no need to struggle by yourself, but, trust, share and feel supported instead.
