Meet Ana Paula Markel

My name is Ana Paula Markel. I am a mother of 4, a wife, a Child Birth Educator, a Doula trainor and Doula. I practice in Los Angeles CA. I have a business that is called Beanny Birth where we get together to discuss any topic related to pregnancy, child birth and early parenting. I'm also known as a Birth Diplomat. I really enjoy connecting people and have people that may not agree in all topics, talk about it and support each other and respect different opinions. So, we also facilitate a lot of panel and discussion among birth professionals. May background is in fashion so I would say, my hobby is still looking through books and fashion magazines. That is the business that I grew up with, that was my family's business. And I went to Fashion School and worked on it for a long time, so I didn't completely detached from it. So, secretly on my quite time I looked through fashion magazines. I enjoy dogs, and playing outside.
