Flor Cruz is the woman behind BadAssMotherBirther. She is a wife and mother to 4 beautiful children. She resides in the city of Long Beach, California. Flor became interested in becoming a birth doula after coming to a bit of standstill in life. She realized that she wasn’t doing what her heart desired, and what she wanted to do was help families through childbirth. She signed up for doula training and once she completed that, she worked as an intern at a free-standing birth center. From there, she started her own doula business and began to find real problems with the maternity care in the U.S. Her passion for birth only grew stronger, and she dove into learning about normal, physiological birth and evidence-based care. She uncovered so much information and felt that she needed to share it with the world.
In 2017, Flor had a VBAC that changed her forever. Shortly after, BadAssMotherBirther was born. Flor has so much pride in feeling like she's making a difference by just sharing her knowledge and amazing uncensored content across social media platforms.
