MY HEART AND SOUL ARE IN THIS WORK
I act as a labor coach who acts as a mentor guiding the expectant couple through pregnancy, birth, and the first 6 weeks postpartum with a mix of practical information, emotional support, and hands-on help. I believe that when we consciously embody the doula role we become the kindred spirit, a personal companion, whose willingness to serve guides both the mother-to-be and her partner every bit of the way.
My intention is to help you meet your needs as a woman and a new mother. There is a lot of information out there and as we begin to step into this new phase of life we can sometimes doubt our own 'intuitive' knowing. As a professionally trained birth professional with a background in holistic health, I believe you already possess the intuition on "how-to" birth, mother, and heal but may require a little insight to help you tune-in, turn-on, and rediscover your innate wisdom within your heart and soul.
Let's face it, the transitions between our life chapters are challenging -- we have to reinvent ourselves, rediscover what our life is about and redefine our needs. We deserve to feel supported, with compassion and empathy.
I can recall my own heroic journey, vividly engrained in my mind and heart, as it was like I had descended to a bizarre landscape for which I was unprepared, fighting at times for my life and sanity. I recall this beautiful mythical story of a Summerian Goddess by the name of Inanna. (click here to read her story) Like Innana, I indeed felt naked and betrayed by our culture, as there is so much emphasis on our achievements, accomplishments, and self-image, BUT zero on the decent we take after childbirth, illness, and even loss.
The story reminded me of how women through their births in which they too arrived, at the end, naked, reduced to their essential nature to do battle with death and pain, while bringing new life into the world. The modern woman today enters motherhood quite mature and empowered, with long resumes and successful careers behind them. Still, I haven’t met mothers who were not shocked by the changes childbirth brought to their psyche. It is often a path of descent into our own early history, the wilderness of our primitive selves, and, in our culture, into solitary confinement. Perhaps, it is the gateway returning us to the depths of the right brain where our own earliest overwhelming memories are stored.
What a huge awakening this was, to have felt like I found the missing link in our stories. Stories such as this were passed down from generation to generation to guide young women to understand the journey that laid ahead of them. In our American culture, we no longer prepare ourselves for the heroic transition from Woman to Mother.
MY GIFT IS MY VISION
With all this knowledge, being able to bridge modern, westernized science with the traditional ways of 'knowing' taught in Ayurveda, Reiki, and Traditional Chinese Medicine I am able to tend to the mother's body, mind, and heart. Her heart and emotional state are so often forgotten as our culture as shifted our focus more on materialistic consumption, birth outcome, and the newborn.
What about the women who just became a mother? How is she feeling? How is she?
My philosophy is simple... birth should infuse the awakening mother within with the love and confidence she needs to begin the journey of parenting her new baby.
I believe that most women would rather be witnessed rather than managed in their birth journey and our role is to simply allow her to lead the way.
We offer a family-centered approach on birth and support women and families move into motherhood with ease and grace, acknowledging each birth as sacred, and co-create a supportive, supplementary care plan that truly empowers not only her but every facet of her birth story.
