Nicole is a certified trauma-informed birth & postpartum doula, sex and relationship coach, pelvic bodyworker, somatic sex educator (CSB), and the founder of Body Compass.
Nicole sees birth and the transition to postpartum as an important journey for whole body, mind, and self. Her methodology for birth support expands traditional doula services to include integrative pelvic floor education & embodiment practices to create an environment that is nourishing, pleasure-filled, and easeful for you and your family.
She believes that our capacity as women to hold the power of creating life needs to be supported, massaged and stretched during the months leading up to birth; remolded and held in the tenderness of the postpartum.
With her trauma-informed, somatic, and pleasure-focused approach to birth work, Nicole supports moms in creating a deep awareness and connection to their whole bodies & selves, empowering them to find safety, vitality and confidence in their experience of pregnancy, birth, the postpartum period and beyond.
Nicole is a Certified Holistic Doula and received her training from The Life of Peace Wellness Institute. She is also currently a Student Midwife and a certified Birth Assistant in Austin. She is originally from Venezuela and does speak Spanish.
Nicole began her birth journey as a yoga instructor by teaching Pre-Natal Yoga. In complete awe of birth, she enrolled in doula training in 2017 that has led her down a passionate journey. She has traveled and learned from traditional midwives, comadres, and gained permission and knowledge for this work and the medicine she shares.
As a traditional birth companion and doula, she is here to support you physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually – whatever that might look for you. She is also trained in Traditional Mexican Belly Binding, Neonatal Resuscitation (NRP) and Basic Life Support (BLS, CPR, AED).
She believes that the body is brilliantly designed, and your intuition is powerful. She stands to support and honor the whole family through this rite of passage; that is the magic of birth.
Chaney has a Bachelors of Science in Nutrition and received her training from DONA for Birth and CAPPA for postpartum. As a mother of two – daughter and son – she believes that having connection and a safe nonjudgmental space is what mothers need to be themselves and thrive.
After giving birth to her first child, she remembered leaving the hospital and thinking ‘what do I do next?’ Soon realizing there is no blueprint to motherhood. She began to battle with postpartum anxiety and was concerned about the connection to her daughter until she began the practice of spiritual awareness, gratitude and mindfulness.
Chaney recognized through her experiences that mothers still need mothering too. As a Postpartum Doula she wants to pour into moms and help fill their cups when they are pouring out to their families.
