“A doula is a trained and experienced professional who provides emotional, physical, and educational support to a woman and her partner before, during, and after childbirth. Unlike a midwife, a doula does not provide medical care or deliver babies. Instead, a doula focuses on advocating for the mother's wishes, helping her stay calm and comfortable during labor, and assisting with breastfeeding and newborn care. The goal of a doula is to help women have a positive and empowering birth experience.”🤖

As a wrap around doula I dont attend births. At all. I dont need to. Hire a birth doula if you want to. Ill help a mama find one.
But im there for fertility prep for the year before. For miscarriage support. For the whole pregnancy every single day. Herbs. Tinctures. Exercise. Foods. Drinks. Yoga balls. Rebozo. You have the baby. I keep you from sneeze peeing your pants. 40 days of laying in. Breastfeeding success. Months after the birth youre healing and tracking fertility and most midwives dont do what doulas do and vice versa.
The question is what KIND of doula are you even talking about?
Some doulas show up for 2 appts before the birth. Say hi and bye. LAME!!! Do not hire her!!
For my Postpartum- My doula made me food. Rubbed my feet. Told me funny jokes. Read to me. Fed me. Slap baths. Breast massages. Rebozo. Cooked w me. Laughed w me. Stayed in my kitchen cooking and brought her kids here. Did a naming ceremony. Prayed w me. Steamed me. Hugged me. Texted me. Made me homemade dandelion tinctures. Brought me delicious drinks and mushroom pureed bone broth.
Do you know what a doula does?
Whats a bereavement doula?

We are an epipen allergy family.
The question- “What is this? The doctor said its a viral allergy.”
Really? Wow. What will they think of next?
You can clean up and detox!! You can use lemon oils. Drink lemon juice. Use lemon rind. Use acv shots. Womb tea shots. Cilantro and ginger shots.
If it is some allergy or allergic reaction…
Its a flat out investigation w about a thousand questions.
Theres no such thing as viruses. Detoxing maybe. Cellular debris.
Systemic allergic rxns.
Triggers from chemicals.
Emotional triggers resulting in physical reactions. Look up louise hay.
Henry wrights book. “A more excellent way.
Be in health. Spiritual roots of disease. Pathways to wholeness.”
Biblical foundations. Bible verses for every ailment.
Jussss sayin. I was lied to about a lot of things in college. So many things. And by doctors. And nurses. Some good. Some bad. Theres good and bad everywhere.
Have you ever been lied to about something and you KNOW that doesnt sit right in your mama intuition?
What did you do about it?
How do I do it all? How do I survive?
(She specifically had a homestead. Farm. Kids. Hub gone for work. She wasnt asking me. She was just asking the world. As we all do many times. )
I went out on a limb to share whats worked and works for me sometimes. A lot of my clients, friends, people up and down the road have roadblocks. How do we navigate that?
Hub gone? Works a lot? Many children? Live far from family? No friends yet? Military life? Traveling husband life? Personal choices mean no eating out -home making every meal life? Allergies life? Migraine life? Conscientious lifestyle choices life? Epipens life? Farm life? City life? Drive 90 miles to take your kid to the good school life? Breaking generational curses and bonds life? Inventing new family traditions life?
Heres what i said…
I know of a single mama who runs a farm and is a midwife and travels for births. I dont know how on earth she does it but she does!
I run a homestead. Chickens. Getting alpacas. Mend all the Fencing. Constantly. Dogs. Cats. 5 kids. Hub in military. I work from home and am on zoom. And everything wild outdoor indoor computer art cooking math reading writing skool.
Kids are under 12. New puppy. I cook everything for us. We dont eat out.
Dear Mama, make a ton of really good friends.
Find a super good church or tribe somehow.
Make a clear routine.
If the dishes are crazy- dont do them- use paper plates for your sanity. Its only temporary.
Silly things like that might help you survive. Then, you thrive.
I do this- i make four boxes of pasta at a time.
Make five pounds of taco meat.
Make a ton of foods you can mix and match.
Two casserole dishes of frittattattatas (tater tots eggs and cherry tomatoes dill cheese whatever!!)
Stews. Freeze half.. Mashed potatoes. Im talking seven pounds. Turn some into latkes. They travel well. Potato cheese balls. Also car rides travel well. Sports events. Whatever works. Mashed potatoes in a bowl w broccoli. Bacon bits (kosher). Cheese sour cream.
Make a pan of dressing stuffing. At know. That thanksgiving bread thing. It freezes well in squares.
Shama french toast souffle. Same. Make three pans. Freeze one. Eat one for dinner. Next one for breakfast.
Hire help if you need.
Let some things go.

Theres more. But i have a client who is like to the minute knows when shell get her period. She trusts her body. She KNOWS EXACTLY what happens when something interferes. And they do. The things. The pressures. The little things.
Do you wanna learn what my “all knowing client” learned so you can be like her and be SOOOOOO CONNECTED to your body you dont even need to track your spit anymore bc you TRUST YOUR BODY, you BELIEVE your body, and you break up w society and their idea of how to ignore your clues cues signs and messages?
Im here. Got lots of ideas.

Then if you ever want to work w me later… 1-1… its already done! If not, no worries.
HELP! - she said. My period is being so weird. Several days of normal bleeding. Early. Late. Then normal length.
How are you tracking?
What is going on to make your body react differently?
Have you steamed at all?
What are you taking for tinctures?
What teas are you drinking for your womb?
Also- i know its tmi- not for me- but super helpful-
What color is your blood?
Several days tells me nothing. Can you be more specific?
3 days of brown?
4 days of brown and black? Clots?
Red at all? Pink? Mucus at all? Pain at all? Cramps?
Normal length means nothing😂. Women tell me normal and then go on to describe absolutely completely irregular 100% not normal.
I dont trust anyonebc theyve been lied to about what normal is. Not your fault!
Whats early mean? Do you know your luteal phase?
How do you treat your body when youre bleeding? Tampons? Cups? Freebleed? Work out? Run? Exercise?
If any of this sounds like you- or you dont know what Im talking about and want some guidance… i am happy to help!
Do you wanna zoom w me?
