We see you.
You are on the threshold of a transition in your life.

Are you wondering what you need to feel ready to give birth and become a parent? 


We are here to walk the path with you.

We are two women with a passion for exploration and self-discovery. We are mentors and doulas, working with parents and parents-to-be at this time of personal transformation.

As Birthing from Within mentors, we offer a unique approach to preparation for birth and early parenthood. We are also available to attend births as doulas in Central Portugal.

A minha primeira impressão da Supriya durou até o fim das suas visitas à nossa casa. Ela parecia calma, calorosa, honesta, carinhosa, sem preconceitos e com um grande coração aberto. Ela tem a capacidade natural e presença em segurar o espaço para as pessoas. Seu conhecimento foi inestimável durante e após o nascimento e me fez sentir tranquilizado, portanto, mais relaxado. Ter Supriya ao meu lado, segurando a minha mão durante o parto, foi a melhor coisa que eu podia ter. Eu a recomendo fortemente para quem está procurando uma doula.

My first impression of Supriya lasted till the end of her visits to our home. She seemed calm, warm, honest, caring, non-judgmental with a big open heart.

She has the natural ability and presence in holding the space for people. Her knowledge was invaluable during and after the birth and made me feel reassured therefore more relaxed.

Having Supriya by my side, holding my hand during birth was the best thing I could have. I would strongly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a doula.

Somos tão gratos que Supriya foi a nossa doula. Ela foi uma presença calma e pensativa por toda parte, ajudando-nos a explorar os sentimentos complexos que um tempo de transição pode suscitar de maneira gentil e sensível à medida que nos preparávamos para o nascimento. Durante o parto, ela me deu apoio, carinho e presente, permitindo que eu trabalhasse à minha maneira, mas tinha um senso intuitivo de quando eu precisava dela. O nascimento de nosso filho foi particularmente desafiador às vezes e meu marido sentiu que a aceitação e a compaixão de Supriya o ajudaram a lidar com isso, então ele, por sua vez, poderia estar mais completo para mim.

We are so grateful that Supriya was our doula. She was a calm, thoughtful presence throughout, helping us explore the complex feelings such a transitional time can bring up in a gentle, sensitive way as we prepared for the birth.

During the birth she was supportive, nurturing and present, allowing me to labour in my own way, yet had an intuitive sense of when I needed her.

Our son’s birth was particularly challenging at times and my husband felt Supriya’s acceptance and compassion helped him to cope with this so he in turn could be more fully there for me.
