ABOUT ME
Untitled design (1).jpg

Fatima Chavez Lopez(she/they) is a first-generation Chicana from Oxnard, California. Fatima attended California State University, Long Beach and graduated in 2016 with a Bachelor's of Arts in Sociology. She first started on this path in 2014 working with traditional plant medicine and after several years of studying, she developed an interest in womb health. She then completed her doula training in 2019 with Birthworkers of Color based in Long Beach.  Since becoming a doula she has completed various trainings and workshops led by Indigenous and POC educators that have their work rooted in traditional practices and medicine. Through the University of California San Diego's Extension Program, Fatima completed the Lactation Educator and Counselor certification program in December 2019.

 

Fatima believes we know our body best and that we are guided by intuition, informed decisions, and consent. She believes through that wisdom we can make the best decisions about our body and health. She approaches care through a trauma informed lens and centers the individual and their needs first. Her doula work is rooted in Traditional Mexican medicine that is constantly evolving with teachings from her mother and mentors.

If we have worked together...
I would love to hear your experience, thoughts, and/or feedback on how your experience was with me serving as your doula. My goal with this survey is to identify how I can better improve my services and will also help others that are interested in seeking doula support from me. The required questions (ones with a red star next to it) from this survey will be shared on my website and you have the option to have your name attached to your review or not. Thank you!
