Yume Takeuchi, MS, L.Ac. is a licensed acupuncturist and doula and the owner of Acu-Doula: Acupuncture & Birth Services in Berkeley. She has a Masters of Science in Chinese Medicine from The American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine and received her doula training at Natural Resources in San Francisco.
