Bonjour

***I am now fully vaccinated (Moderna) 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 came in the US in 2013 as an au pair,  I was 23 and my goal was to learn English for a year in an American family. A few months later, I met my now husband, 8 years later, we are stayed in California (Yes, he is french, too!). We 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 (Ari), born in August 2020.

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

People are drawn to my support for their baby’s birth and recovery for my “joie de vivre” (happiness), my optimism, my knowledge, and my confidence.  My clients choose me because they know I’ll advocate for them with assurance.  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 glad you found me and I hope you’ll enjoy the information given on this website!
