Give yourself sweet, precious time. Be gentle with yourself as your little one develops. Rest. Take it slow. Go easy on all the transformations that are occurring within you as you enter motherhood and bring a new human being into the process. Remember you have incredible innate wisdom within your body. Trust in that. Let yourself be your guide and have patience in the process. It is a divine process indeed. .

Abel has already been in this world for a week! It seems like it’s been months since his Momma worked so hard to bring him into this world. She did amazing & it was an honor to be by her side. He’s quite the cute little man with all that hair and sweet face! You’re lucky to have so much love around you Abel ❤️ Thank you for teaching me so much while supporting my first birth experience with your momma. You taught me patience and to remember how each birth is absolutely uniquely beautiful. .

It was beyond synchronistic to happen to have my Doula Trainer & guide, @jesseremer, present as I began to support my very first birth. Thank you for continuing to share all your amazing Doula wisdom. The universe is freaking awesome ❤️ .

December 17th, 10:36pm PST - literally minutes after the new moon in Sagittarius, my period began. Incredible how in-tune our bodies can be with the rhythm of nature. How’s your Moon cycle?

Hello Sweet Mamas of Portland & SW Washington,

Happy Holidays.This post is specifically for all the expectant mommas out there who would love a bit of support, but having that extra support is out of budget right now.
I am a DONA trained Birth Doula offering a Certification Births Special!!!! **limited time** Currently, I am offering my birth doula services free of charge in exchange for completing an evaluation form, a testimonial and/or photographs from our visits together. My services include 2 pre-natal visits, attending your birth & 2 postpartum visits.
My mission is for mommas to remember and connect with their inner strength and body's innate wisdom while having unwavering, compassionate and non-judgmental support. I also strive to provide the partner with guidance to feel confident and fully present during this pivotal time.
Who am I? Why Birth?
I’m PNW born and breed. The last decade of my life were spent all over the west coast from San Francisco, where I developed my IT career, to Lima, Peru where I studied Spanish and met my husband. During my recent journeys through Central America life brought to my attention the absolute wonder & beauty that is birth. My first experience where I was really able to fully take in birth was at a rural Midwifery center in Guatemala. I felt so inspired by these women; both the indigenous Midwives & incredibly strong mommas. Needless to say, my new passion for birth emerged. The wonder and amazement has deepened and woven into the fabric of my life. I believe birth is a sacred, rite of passage that can be honored and supported every step of the way.
I hope that families look back on their birth experience and feel strong, proud and empowered.

Don't hesitate if you're curious at all and reading this post peaked your interest. You can write me here or contact me directly:

Excited for vision boarding day with my fellow Doulas today! I found this one online created by a pregnant momma to prepare for her upcoming birth. What a beautiful visual to have in your birth room or up in your home office to remind you of your strength. Momma’s - would this be an activity you’d enjoy doing with your Doula or Birth Partner?

"The ACAM birthing center is a transformative place. It’s where I first experienced a live birth and set my heart on fire to continue to pursue birth work as a path to empower women. Consider supporting @mayamidwifery & @everymomcounts through following their work, visiting in person or a donation. I can say firsthand the work they are doing is incredible!!! And Imelda is a compassionate, selfless midwife that represents the essence of the verb ‘to serve’, both her community and in passing on the maya midwifery knowledge to the next generation. ."

“Guatemala is one of the most dangerous countries in Central America to give birth, particularly for its Indigenous community, which makes up 50% of the population.

Skilled attendance at all births is considered to be the single most critical intervention for ensuring a safe delivery. Unfortunately, only 30% of Indigenous women in Guatemala have access to this.
One of Every Mother Counts’ Guatemala-based partners, Asociación de las Comadronas del Area Mam (ACAM), a collective of traditional, Indigenous midwives, provides comprehensive healthcare through their birth center and mobile clinics. Their work ensures that mothers living in rural and isolated communities have access to essential maternity care.
Your contributions allow us to help partners like ACAM, among many others. Since 2012, our investments in community-led organizations has impacted over 600,000 lives.” -Every Mother Counts

That was an intense and amazing training. I felt so lucky to have found Mother Tree 🌲 Jesse Remer’s DONA training was transformational for both my professional & personal development. I can’t wait to apply all that I’ve learned. Send all the Momma’s my way!! ❤️ #BirthDoula #birth #doulacare #doula #bridgebirth #DONAtraining #DONA #donainternational #donaintl #birthisnormal #birthisbeautiful #birthisbirth #portland #portlandoregon #pdx #portlanddoula
