“Take it one day at a time. This is new, and you are learning with your baby.” ~ Ednalyna Martin 

Edna is a foodie who loves adventure and discovering new foods. Her hobbies include experiences in nature, spending time with family, dancing, and crafting. Through self-healing and self-discovery, Edna is grateful for the journey because it has shifted how she serves her community with intention, authenticity, and love! Edna brings her professionalism in every encounter with her clients and outshines them with the compassion that fuels her as a birthworker. Supporting families through childbirth education, labor doula support, and one-on-one lactation support as an IBCLC, families in the Las Vegas Valley have benefitted tremendously.  

As a Doula, Edna helps families transition into parenthood with a mindfulness, compassionate, and non-judgmental approach. Having come from a teaching background, she is proud to share how much that has helped shift how she supports and serves her community by providing individualized care based on your needs.

Edna is CPR/First Aid certified, insured, and qualified to accept Nevada State Medicaid Members as a Labor Doula.

Ednalyna’s Favorite Quote

“Our lives are not determined by what happens to us, but how we react to what happens; not by what life brings us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results.” U.K.

When you hire Vegas Family Doulas, you guarantee your support with compassion and professionalism. Unbiased support that builds your confidence one shift at a time. Having Edna as your doula alleviates anxiety, fears, concerns, and uncertainty in pregnancy, labor, and childbirth.
