My name is Victoria (Vee) Goins, and I am a DONA trained birth doula servicing Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. In 2017, upon realization of the high infant and maternal mortality rates plaguing the United States, I began volunteering as a doula alongside two prominent organizations in Philadelphia, The Philadelphia Alliance for Labor Support (PALS) and the Maternity Care Coalition.
It was working with these birthing moms that solidified what I already know "mom knows best". No matter what number pregnancy this is for mom, her education level regarding childbirth, or her delivery setting, every mother deserves an informed pregnancy, a tailored birth plan, and continuous labor support with comfort measures adapted to her needs.
I started Dyvine Doula not only to broaden my work with birthing women and their partners but also because I believe that empowered mommies and dyvine deliveries are the grassroots work needed to dispell our fears associated with childbirth and reverse our maternal health crisis. My services are centered around the belief that empowered women who are supported in trusting themselves and their bodies are able to experience the divinity in childbirth.
As a birth doula I accompany you and your partner into labor to provide perspective, emotional support, and physical comfort to ensure a safe, informed, and satisfying birth experience

"From our first meeting, it felt like Victoria was an old friend and I immediately felt very comfortable during a vulnerable time. In the subsequent weeks, Victoria was always in touch and easy to talk to. During my labor and delivery, she went above and beyond to care for both myself and my husband. I felt very reassured that she was there to advocate for me. She remained very professional and was a calming energy in the room. I am forever grateful that she was by my side through the whole journey."
