Oriona Van Dolson

Birth Doula

Oriona first learned about the amazing work doulas do when she hired the only practicing doula in Taipei, Taiwan to attend the birth of her second son. Two years later, she attended her sister-in-law's homebirth. After her hands on involvement at the birth she realized her passion for helping women through labor could benefit more women if she trained as a doula. Oriona started her training with DONA the next month and has loved every experience along this journey.

Oriona is passionate about informing women in all walks of life about their options and rights for pursuing their desired birth. She supports women in any decisions they make for their birth and looks for ways to encourage both parents to communicate and be involved throughout the pregnancy and birth.

Oriona has had additional training with Spinning Babies.
