Birth Doula

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The women existed, but the mother never. A mother is absolutely new.

-Rajneesh

As a birth doula my role is to support you physically and emotionally through this process of transformation based on my Mexican heritage and traditional birth support practices. We will meet during your pregnancy to discuss your birth options, wishes and priorities. I will provide pre and postpartum education and offer resources to help you gather evidence-based information so you feel confident in your decisions and fully connected with your OWN experience. I will share with you multiple comfort measures for before and during labor, and last but not least, talk through any fears or anxiety that you may have.

 

Labor & birth

Once you feel the need for extra labour support, I join you and stay for the remainder of your labour, either at the hospital or your home. I will be open and receptive to your needs in the moment, giving you gentle emotional and physical support, reassurances and encouragement!

I will make sure to respect your unique parenting needs. My goal is to support you and your partner to create an amazing respected birth experience and cultivate happy and confident parents.

Postpartum Doula

MEXICAN TRADITIONAL CARE

With a well Postpartum care plan, I will bring you into a space of healing, hearing your own inner voice and intuition, following your own rhythms.

Together we are going to have a smooth walk into the sacred stage of motherhood.

MEXICAN TRADITIONAL CARE

La Sobada y vendada

A traditional mix of herbs and alcohol made by a Partera in Mexico, is gentle applied into your abdominal area helping  to the recovery of skin elasticity and to bring all the organs in place before pregnancy. After a deep a massage the tummy is bandaged to keep the firmness, better posture and get back and core strength. Followed by a whole body massage with herbs infusion oils to promote healing, release soreness, water retention, detoxification and supports the uterus after birth. Typically done the first day postpartum or a soon as possible for a vaginal birth, for c-section is better to wait a few days to let the scar heal.

Yoni Steam Bath Ceremony

The Yoni/vaginal steam bath is used for reducing inflammation, preventing infection, relaxing the pelvic floor, vagina & hips; and for helping the uterus contract back to non-pregnant size. It assists in closing the cervix by tightening up tissues, releasing dead cells, and provides necessary warmth to the reproductive organs.

Steam opens the pores, allowing the beneficial herbs to penetrate into the bloodstream.

Typically start on the fourth day postpartum and through the whole cuarentena (40 days postpartum). Highly recommended for c-seciton mamas, to reduce inflammation for a faster recovery.

"La Cerrada" ( The Close Ceremony & Womb Healing Massage )

Mexican Traditional Massage with Rebozo.

Sacred Ceremony for Moms, where we get in contact with your physical and emotional body. It´s the perfect space of transition from pregnancy into motherhood. This ritual is about applying pressure in different parts of the body releasing emotions or physical tensions that can remind in our bodies during pregnancy or labour.

This experience is different and unique for every women.

“Remember, there is a natural time after childbearing when a women is considered to be of the underword. She is dusted with its dust, watered by its water, having seen into the mystery of life and death, pain and joy during labor.

So, for a time she is ‘not here’ but rather still ‘there’. It takes time to re-emerge.”

-Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Women Who Run With Wolves.
