Holistic Birth & Postpartum Doula
"What is needed for pregnant women and new mothers is for others to really take time to listen to them so they can listen to themselves and find themselves". -Francoise Freedman, Birthlight
"The birth of each baby has a long lasting impact on the physical and mental health of birthing person, baby and family". -DONA INTERNATIONAL Position Paper: The Birth Doula’s Role in Perinatal Care
A doula is a trained, companion who assists a woman before, during and after childbirth. A doula provides Physical, Emotional, Informational support and advocacy. We work to help BIRTHERS Have the best Most Fulfilling and healthy birth experience she can.
From our first meeting and beyond, I'm here for you, always and whenever. Please don't hesitate to reach out; I'm thrilled to answer your calls, texts and questions. I'm here for your comfort, mentally and physically. It delights me to provide relieving techniques and tools as your body transitions throughout pregnancy. I'm an open book and by your side to provide you with educational resources. I want you to feel informed when making choices for you and your growing family. This is your special time and I am eager and honored to help you cherish these moments. I will support you in your moments of vulnerability and your moments of strength. Thank you for allowing me to serve you with my hands and heart. I believe in the best you, and that your power is divine. I will always honor your wishes, remind you of your goals, and be there to cheer you on.
During your postnatal time, we will work to rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul. Over the last nine months, your body carried you and your beautiful babe. Let's now focus on enjoying them earth side, learning from one another through feedings, bath times and those sweet moments...and even those tougher ones. I will nurture you and baby...and of course their sweet siblings. I am here to assist with sleep relief, breastfeeding, baby and self care tools, light housework, and meal preparation. Whether it's joining you in your first trip back to the grocery store with baby or providing you with the time to take a shower. You will have the option to discuss your birth, and we will celebrate your milestones and successes as I am so so proud of you! I'm here to give you the safe, non-judgmental space you need to rest and recover.
Having these tools will help guide you through each stage of labor, allowing you to feel that what you are enduring is purposeful, natural, and normal. I am a firm believer that you know your body best; I will be here to discuss what you're experiencing in early labor. Evidence suggests with decreased adrenaline, there is more room for oxytocin, also known as the love hormone. This euphoric hormone will help your uterus contract, allowing your cervix to ripen and open. When we can find a rhythm or ritual within your contractions, we can help your endorphins to create natural pain relief stimulants. Endorphins work in the same area of our brain as morphine and other pain relief management. When we can achieve such a state of mind, our bodies can begin to surrender and trust the process you and your baby are so heavily intertwined through. I will be with you when it's go time; all way until you and your loved ones are feeling nourished and comfortable and ready for your quiet time as a new family!
I proudly embrace my ancestral ties with the Navajo tribe from New Mexico. Navajo culture and heritage flow through my veins, connecting me to the rich traditions, values, and wisdom of my people. I strive to honor and preserve our sacred heritage in everything I do. With a passion for holistic care and deep respect for indigenous traditions, I am committed to supporting families throughout their birthing and postpartum journey.
I deeply value the power of indigenous wisdom and traditional practices, and I believe in the importance of incorporating these principles into the sacred journey of childbirth. With a profound respect for cultural diversity and ancestral knowledge, I am committed to providing nurturing and supportive care throughout the entire birthing process.
My services encompass a wide range of support, tailored to meet the unique needs and desires of each family. During the prenatal period, I offer comprehensive education, guidance, and advocacy to help families make informed choices. I am adept at providing emotional support, assisting with comfort measures, and facilitating communication with healthcare providers to ensure the birthing person's wishes are respected.
Being a doula has allowed me to witness the incredible strength and resilience of mothers as they bring new life into the world. I am committed to providing culturally sensitive and inclusive care, recognizing the unique needs and challenges faced by Indigenous families. In the birth environment, I strive to create a calm and empowering space for the birthing person. I am skilled in various relaxation techniques, herbalism, breathwork, and positioning to help manage discomfort and encourage a positive birth experience.
Drawing from indigenous traditions, I can incorporate rituals, ceremonies, and blessings into the birth process, honoring the sacredness of this transformative event.
