When I am not attending to births, I enjoy volunteering with marginalized communities,spending time with family, hiking and exploring our beautiful state of Washington. Other than that, I have a strong desire to help put an end to the inequalities that hinder care in order to make good health an accessible right for everyone. My profound commitment to working with underserved populations, my personal background, and my experience in health care speak to my desire to lessen health care disparities in this society and beyond. With all these experiences in life I have had, it would be dream come true to put my aspirations into practice and make a difference to the millions of children around the world that have less hope of tomorrow’s dreams.

Sahra Isse

This was our second time working with Zuleka for childbirth, and once again she was fantastic and we'll worth it. She was integral to making the labor and delivery process successful and a happy and meaningful memory. I have generally positive memories of both births, thanks in no small part of Zuleka's involvement! 

Zuleka is incredibly knowledgeable, has a great demeanour and bedside manner for both parents, and worked really well with the medical staff at the hospital. 

If we decide to have a forth child in the future, Zuleka will be our doula again for sure. I'm so grateful for her and everything she did for our family.

My experience with Zuleka is amazing and memorable. She provided me with great supports when I had my contractions during my labor. She hold my hand and I leaned on her chest, I felt warm and relieved. She is sweet and gave more lot of good advices and ideas of labor. We exchanged cultural backgrounds. We got along so well. Love having her as my Doula.

Zuleka is an amazing doula! Both my fiance and I can attest to Zukeka ability and knowledge. Her presence during the birth of our son was a tremendous help. This was our first pregnancy and we both wanted to have an experienced and encouraging coach to help us along the way. In addition, I wanted to complete childbirth naturally Zuleka was helpful in educating us in what to expect in the weeks leading up to the birth, the childbirth process itself, and what to expect postpartum. Our son Shalom, was born at the Seattle swedish first hill. Zuleka was very professional and nurturing throughout the labor and delivery.  Zuleka was quick to suggest laboring positions and to ask questions and make suggestions that were in my best interest. In addition to her active coaching, Zuleka also provide  massage. Zuleka helped us achieve our ideal labor and delivery. Shalom was born naturally as I wanted. Zuleka was a great cheerleader in moments where I thought I would not be able to deliver the baby. She is awesome and we recommend her highly. Thanks so much Zuleka!

She provided me an emotional, informational, and physical support through my labor.

My husband and I couldn't have asked for a more kind, loving, calm, strong, skilled and helpful doula. Suleka is very good at what she does and we would be happy to recommend her to anyone !”.

Alissa Wehrman

My name is Alissa Wehrman and am an experienced birth doula in the Seattle area who provides mentoring for doulas getting started in the community. Zuleka and I worked together with a client a couple of years ago as a team and I am so glad we did.  Our client really enjoyed having both of us and needed both of us for different reasons. Zuleka was very comfortable in the hospital and was able to stay very aware of what was happening so she could really support our client through some challenging end of pregnancy complications. She was confident and easy to communicate with and very kind. She was always ready at a moment's notice for unexpected visits and is very committed to this work. You would be in good hands with Zuleka!!
