Bio

Yohualitztli is a Purépecha/Anahuac Indigenous mom of two precious jades. She is an active member in her Indigenous community, practicing ancestral ceremonies and maintaining strong ties to her roots, culture and language. Yohualitztli is a published scientist and graduated with a Bachelors in Science in Molecular, Cell and Developmental Biology from the University of California, Santa Cruz. She maintains involvement in the medical field by currently working for the University of California, Irvine Medical School and using her medical Spanish background to translate for the Hyperemesis Education and Research (HER) Foundation.
Yohualitztli is a trained Full Spectrum Doula and placenta encapsulation. Her practices are guided both by her elders and background knowledge in medicine. She works closely with the rest of the Birthworkers of Color Collective to maintain her knowledge and Doula practices up to speed. Her passion has always been to support and serve marginalized communities, such as her own Indigenous community and communities of color. Yohualitztli is a community advocate and has over 20 years experience advocating for Indigenous communities and communities of People of Color. Her short term and long term goals are to continue to expand her work and knowledge as a Doula by becoming a Lactation Educator and eventually fulfilling a life-time goal of training to be a midwife. With her work, Yohualitztli hopes to help close the disproportionate gap in services during pregnancy, birth, loss and beyond for Indigenous People and People of Color.",

Yohualitztli es una indígena Purépecha/Cemanahuac, madre de dos preciosas jades que la inspiran y la centran diariamente. Un gran enfoque de Yohualitztli es educar a sus hijos a través del “homeschooling” o educación en casa para inculcarles sus tradiciones y lenguaje. Es guiada por sus abuelos/abuelas y camina cercanamente con su comunidad. Ella es una partera/doula participando con el colectivo de Birthworkers of Color, educadora de lactancia completando su internado con Breastfeed LA, y una bióloga. Su práctica se enfoca en apoyar a las comunidades Indígena, hispanohablante, y comunidades subrepresentadas en parto, posparto, pérdida, lactancia y pilmama (cargar a bebés en portadores). Continúa en la lucha de justicia reproductiva y se esfuerza en sus trabajos comunitarios para cerrar la brecha en servicios y educación en salud para toda la gente subrepresentada. Yohualitztli es fluyente en español e inglés y provee servicios basados en evidencia y centrados en comunidad.
