Martha Rivera Canjura
Is the owner and Certified Labor Doula/Traditional Health Worker - Doula of Rogue Valley Doulas. With over 10 years of continuous training and experience supporting families during their pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding journey, her mission is to provide professional and compassionate support to all her clients regardless of their birthing and parenting styles.
Martha is a member of Southern Oregon Lactation Association which helps coordinate the annual breastfeeding conferences for professionals and the BIG Latch On event as well as an advisory member of Grandmas 2 Go, and Reproductive and Sexuality Health Work-group for So Health-E. She recently became part of the Oregon Doula Association Board as the Member at Large. She hopes to create a professional platform in southern Oregon for doulas to build successful doula careers and advocate for sustainable practices while building bridges with the medical community.
Martha was born and raised in Medford, OR where she continues to live with her husband and their two beautiful daughters.
Is a Southern Oregon native who is passionate about children and families! She has worked as a dedicated babysitter and nanny to many families over the past 5 years and is honored to be such an intimate part of many children’s lives. She began her doula journey in 2017 and was inspired to get into this wonderful work by her step-mother who worked as a midwife for many years in Nevada. Her family continues to be a huge support and motivation to her through her journeys. Hannah loves to read, write, hike, kayak, be with her dog Lily, and of course spend time with little ones. She is extremely passionate, motivated, and sensitive person, and she considers it a true honor to be a part of a family’s grand journey of pregnancy, childbirth, and beyond!
Interested in pregnancy, labor, and birth for 10 years and after exploring different opportunities to work in the birth world, she became settled on becoming a doula. She values the practice of doulas holding space for laboring persons, and sees the benefit of the power of connection between the doula and their client.
Encouragement, support and positivity are just a few of the attributes she brings to her work as a labor support person.
Kadance has called Southern Oregon home for 12 years and is proud to now be working in the birth community here. Her husband works in the Senior Services Department at RVCOG and she is a Stay at Home Mama to their three children, ages 8, 6 and 2.
For the past decade and a half, I have spent much of my time nurturing, encouraging, and supporting families, both professionally and at a grassroots level.
I balance this out with time devoted to caring for myself and my family, raising four children with my partner and exploring the world around us.
As your doula, I will honor, nurture, and support you and your family during this tender and special time after the birth of your baby.
