Faculty: Rená served as CAPPA’s volunteer Southwest Regional Representative and Regional Director from 2009-2012. She is an active certified birth and postpartum Doula with over 13 years experience. Rená is an Educator, Speaker and Author, as well as, one of CAPPA’s approved Labor Doula Faculty members who has trained Doulas for almost 10 years. My goal is to bring knowledge and compassion to the clients I serve and the students that also teach me something new at every class. She balances family and work life by making time to be a mother, wife, daughter, friend and mentor but not always in this order.
