Our Doulas

Ann de la Torre


Ann is a postpartum doula certified by DONA (Doulas of North America) and a certified lactation educator counselor (UCSD Extension). Ann has been a doula with Beautiful Beginnings since 2008. Prior to that she worked as a registered nurse in Pediatrics and NICU in Belgium, Canada and Hawaii before settling in San Diego. Ann loves being a postpartum doula because it allows her to continue to help families with newborns and to share her experience with them. She enjoys seeing the positive effects and confidence it brings to the new parents. Ann works around the new family’s preferences to provide assistance and support. Others say that Ann is resourceful, organized and patient.

Ann was born and raised in Belgium. When she is not traveling or cruising with her husband, you can find her in the park with her grandkids and dog Kenji. Ann also likes to be creative- knitting and doing arts and crafts. She stays active doing yoga and tai chi.
