*** I am now fully vaccinated against Covid*****

Bonjour ! I’m Mathilde (she/her),  founder of My French Doula. I am grateful to serve families in Orange County as a birth doula, postpartum doula, and family – birth photographer.  I arrived in the US in 2013 as an au pair,  I was 23 and my goal was to learn English for a year … A few months later, I met my (french) husband, and there I am,  6 years in Los Angeles! We then moved to Lake Forest , Orange County, 2 years ago looking for more greenery to raise our children. My husband and I were blessed to welcome our first child, Charlotte, in March 2017, and more recently, our son, Aristide, born in August 2020.

Besides my family, bellies, babies & photos, I love cooking, interior design, and our jumpy poodle named Maïa!  I often travel far from beaten paths & always like to learn about other cultures.

People are drawn to my support for their baby’s birth and recovery for my “joie de vivre” (happiness), my knowledge, and my confidence.  I am stubborn and I’m not afraid to speak up or bend rules.  I’m grateful for the life I have, the chance to live under the sun every day with my three favorite people & a bunch of friends… while doing something such meaningful and fascinating as accompanying people through their birthing and parenting journey. I’m happy you found me and hope you’ll enjoy the information given on this website!
