Patricia’s Training and Expertise

Patricia Grube began her doula training whilst living in England where she was exposed to a wealth of knowledge and the Active Birth Philosophy.   She returned to America and completed her training with CAPPA and DONA doula organizations.  She participated in the “Introduction to Birthing From Within Mentor & Doula workshop.”  She is also trained to provide support in the HypnoBirthing method. Patricia completed an Advanced Doula workshop in Santa Monica with Gail Tully of Spinning Babies.

Likewise, Patricia is a current member of DASC (Doulas Association of Southern California); APPAH (Pre-and Perinatal Psychology & Health); and Birth Works International. She is the founding Co-Leader of the West Los Angeles Chapter of the International Cesarean Awareness Network(ICAN).  ICAN is a non-profit organization made up of volunteers whose mission is to help improve maternal-child health by preventing unnecessary cesareans through education, providing support for cesarean recovery, and promoting Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC).

What Doctors Say

When Dr. Underberger was asked how long would Patricia’s client be in this blissed-out state, he answered:
“For as long as you keep stroking her hair like that….watching you is making me feel relaxed….all women who come in here should be supported that way.”
Dr. Underberger - Anesthesiologist, Torrance Memorial Hospital, California
