Born and raised in Geneva and I traveled during different period of my life and came back to settle with my husband and welcome our sons in 2016 and 2022. Meeting people from different cultures has enriched my life and I want to provide my children with a multinational experience and education; as citizens of 3 nationalities – Mexican, Canadian and Swiss.

My interest has always been self-development and growth. I first studied and worked as a social worker and later as an emotional and body awareness therapist. I explored and trained in different approaches connected to self-development. During 9 years working as a therapist, I created my own approach and included different tools namely; foot reflexology (recognized asca), holistic touch, mindfulness, visualisation, rituals, emotional and energy regulation, to provide you with one-on-one follow-up.

After the birth of my older son, becoming a doula was the natural evolution of my vocation and own personal growth. I am currently developing numerous workshops that allow me to offer both my therapeutic and doula skills in a group setting.

I define myself as grounded and optimistic and I aim to bring these qualities into the work that I do. I look forward to supporting you using my knowledge, skills and learnings from our co-creational space.

Lauren, Matt and baby Francis, on having me as a birth doula

«Thank you so much for your support and guidance during my pregnancy and birth. Becoming pregnant for the first time far from home and family was a bit intimidating and having your support was so important to helping us feel comfortable. The labor and birth support was even more than I could have imagined. Thank you ! »


Elodie, about my workshops and treatments 

« I fully recommend Aurélie for her care, on a physical as well as on an emotional level. She is a sensitive person and good listener, who is able to guide you skillfully and adapt to your personal needs. Thank you Aurélie! »


Renata, on having me as a birth doula

«In the middle of this pandemic when the resources are more distant, Aurelie saved my life. She has such a calm and confident personality. It’s very natural to feel comfortable and trust her work. She is always available for you and your doubts and each meeting is a pleasant world of new informations, techniques and knowledge. With such an emphatic way of being, nothing never feels overwhelming.
I am very lucky and grateful for having her beside me on my first pregnancy. Thanks you Aurélie, I free myself from a lot of unnecessary fears »

How does it work?

Deciding to put one’s trust in a doula or therapist is an important choice. It is for this reason that I offer a free phone or video call so that we can get a sense of one another and decide if we are a good match.
