I’m delighted to be presenting a workshop on heart-centred marketing for spiritual women at the 2019 Doula conference and retreat.
#Doula Conference is a national conference event that takes place during International Doula Week, (22-28th March), for doulas and workers in birth. Doula Conference was founded by a committee of women who were passionate about birth and healthy families. They were united by their vision to support a sustainable community of practice for doulas and birth workers in Australia; linking ancient wisdom and tradition with evidence based practice in the modern birth environment.
This conference is an event that aims to connect Australian doulas and birth workers; to share information and meet the real-life person who we have chatted with so many times in the online forums; and, importantly to recognise and reward our wide spread community for the unique work that we do. Connectedness and support are essential for the ongoing sustainability of the practice.
“Giving energy is at the heart of the work so it can be as demanding as it can be rewarding, in isolation." “Connecting doulas with other doulas is important for sharing experience, new and old ways of doing things, discussing innovation, and information about different hospitals and birth places that will ultimately benefit the birthing mothers and families. It is essential for raising the profile of a movement that has been proven to support better birth outcomes and healthier families.”
Doula Conference is working to raise public awareness and demystify the work of doulas in Australia; to diversify the conversation about birth and promote mutual understanding between doulas and the medical/allied health community. But, most importantly, Doula Conference exists to affect better birth outcomes and healthier families in Australia.

Are you craving rest? A break? A minute to yourself to relax and restore enough energy to be at your best for you and your family ? ————————————
Hi, I’m Regina and I can help you. As a #postpartumdoula my goal is for moms to feel honored, celebrated, rested and restored after having your babies.
If you want someone by your side everyday for the week after you deliver providing herbal baths, massages, replenishing meals and snacks, healing soups, and lactation boosting tea then we need to talk.
Are you saying (Dang she only offers this a week after birth? Nope! To me postpartum doesn’t have an end date. Healing takes time and I’m here for you!) 🗣 doula@tinyfeetandbeartbeats.com

did you know our body shifts during the season change? that’s why so many people get sick. not only our bodies but our spirits too. summer is the time of outward energy and expression. our skin even knows that and it sweats, and it turns red and brown from the sun, and our clothes come off bit by bit. Autumn is when our bodies shift to inner and closed. Our skin does too. Our pores shrink up to retain heat and we need extra layers. We also crave spices like cinnamon and clove and that’s intentional because those are warming herbs. The Chinese would say those spices warm our Qi, our inner life force energy. In Chinese medicine it’s important to dress for the season regardless of how it feels. Yesterday the morning started in the low 40s and rose to the 60s yet people were still in shorts and sandals while I was bundled in jeans, jackets, and boots. Because our spirits and body’s recognize the shift we need to honor that with how we respond or sickness definitely comes because we didn’t listen and respond to the earth’s change. .

So happy autumn friends! Bundle up, warming herbs are your Qi’s friend, and go inward like we should. Time to process, reevaluate, and gather close in gratitude. 🍁

You know what the best thing about babies is? They are like little bundles of hope. Like future in a basket. These little toes ran off to first grade today with no socks because she hates the seams. She came into this world as gently as a soul could. She went very easy on me. I laughed through contractions, bounced on a birth ball, and was watching late night comedy when she was born as softly as a blooming rose. She still lives preciously, with intent, and compassion for every living thing. She is and was the most tender and loving little being. I’m always ever grateful that when motherhood called me, three times so far, I answered a (scared, anxious, but hopeful) y e s.

i want to live so densely. lush. and slow. in the next few years. that a year becomes ten years. and the past becomes only a page. in the book of my life. .

i feel like i have a secret when I work with first time expectant parents. they’re so nervous, they’re overwhelmed, they have so many questions. It IS overwhelming and challenging and all of these things. But the secret I feel tucked deep into my heart is one they won’t be let in on until that soft, squirmy baby is laid on their chest. The secret is that an invisible pitcher filled to the brim with the deepest love you’ve ever encountered is poured over you in all of your new parenthood glory. The secret is the nights are long but you barely even care because this little being is so worth it. Your baby with be so worth it you’ll wonder what else even matters aside from this. Mmmm I love this big secret I keep but can’t adequately share. I love watching the light brighten in new families eyes when their baby is born and they’re told the secret too. Oh how life is just so sweet... .

As a doula, my hands and my heart are my most valuable tools I bring to a birth. Equipping my hands with knowledge of acupressure has proven to be my most utilized therapy to aid birthing people. Few skills sets are as versatile as acupressure. I’ve found it to be beneficial during inductions, cesarean births, unmedicated labors, medicated births, and even postpartum. With just some light pressure on certain points of the body I’m able to ease nausea, calm anxiety, and even relieve pressure off the womb.
In the photo shown I'm practicing relaxation acupressure during a contraction. These points used in tandem with traditional wooden tools can put mama into a trance like state. Not bad for transition, right?

Acupressure is included in all of my birth services. Call or email me today to schedule your free consultation and find out how this unique therapy can enhance your birth experience! (828) 778-1889 & info@marandabussanich.com
