Holistic doula and womb centered herbalist. I adore helping mamas and birthing people in the most natural way possible.
Doula means woman caregiver in Greek culture. A trained and experienced person in areas of pregnancy, birth/labor and postpartum for expecting families. Providing continuous emotional support, physical comfort and assistance in educating families on birth options and choices.
Doulas realize that births are major milestone in families lives and how birth impacts the mom throughout her life. Pregnancy is the beginning of parenthood, assisting women and their partners for birth is essential for baby's foundation for life.
Many studies have found that having a birth team profoundly affect birth outcomes in the most positive way. Women who have full birth support are less likely to give birth by cesarean, less likely to need interventions and less likely to rate their childbirth experience negatively.
Romper Doula Diaries display the need for doulas and what doulas actually do.
Holistic means whole, treatment of the whole person taking into account emotional and mental wellness, rather than just the symptoms of discomfort. As your doula, I will provide whole care throughout your pregnancy, birth and postpartum. I empower families to have the birth experience they desire. I also support women in alternative care such as abortion, adoption and also provide tender support for families experiencing miscarriages and stillbirths.
With holistic doula care comes nutrition support. Joyful Mamas also offers herbal therapies and support for pregnancy, birth and postpartum. Womb centered herbalism also supports and aids women into naturally healing common feminine discomforts likes painful cramps, heavy bleeding and bacterial infections.
We also educate on whole food nutrition and easy ways to grow your own produce.
Placenta encapsulation is the practice of ingesting the placenta after it has been tenderly steamed, gently dehydrated and ground into a fine powder which is encapsulated. There are wonderful benefits to consuming your placenta. Increases oxytocin which is the feel good hormone and it reduces postpartum stress, encourages bonding with baby. Also restores normal iron levels in the blood, increases milk production for breastfeeding and helps uterus shrink down to normal size.
This is also an indigenous and cultural practice in many ethnic groups areas across the planet. Its certainly not a new trend.
Yoni is sanskrit for womb, which includes the vulva, vagina, cervix and uterus. It literally means sacred seat, the place of power for persons with a womb. When the womb is happy the woman/person is also happy and content.
The womb is the second heart of the woman/person. Its aligned anatomically with the heart in the body, its made of similar tissue like the heart and also pumps blood and is the source of life. Its essential that women/womb carriers care for their womb space.
Generations of women from many indigenous cultures through centuries have been passing down this sacred ritual to energetically, emotionally and physically cleanse and nourish their yoni and awaken their Feminine Essence.
During a yoni steam, the vapor carries the medicinal properties of select herbs used. The vapor or steam permeates the vulva and vagina and wafts up to the cervix and uterus, causing relaxation, detox of the muscular tissue (vaginal walls). The absolute best seat you will ever take.
Heat and steam is perfect for soothing and cleaning the womb as heat relaxes, reducing constriction of blood vessels and improving blood flow to the uterus.
Not only is it good for you but feels good as well. Its a perfect time to create a practice of self care.
Here's a list of benefits.
Get you some, you deserve it!
The spirit of the planet is wellness. We are all on a journey of healthy living and loving it. When the body is properly fueled with nourishing foods, your performance increases, you heal faster, your skin glows and your brain is running all on cylinders. The key to good brain health is good gut health. What you put into your body will translate into your brain functions.
So, just imagine if the gut is filled with gunk, sludge, grease, fat and mucus. Nothing is moving at the rate to produce good sustainable energy. Its literally stuck. The body then becomes sluggish, bloated, weight gain in uncomfortable space. That stagnant energy translates into emotional distress, if you don't feel good physically, you don't feel good emotionally or mentally.
Discouragement, disappointment, sadness, negative self talk creates stress, stress creates disease, and disease causes complete discomfort and sometimes death.
But, wait there's great news. You can fix, repair and prevent this discomfort. By making daily decisions to consume things that are good for you. Yes, its that simple. A choice. Choose life and grab some whole food nutrition.
Its recommend that humans consume at least 12-15 servings of raw produce daily to fight off current environmental factors and stress alone, in today's climate. I don't know anyone that can consume that many servings (fist size) in a day. We all are sooooo busy with life, its almost impossible to get the proper nutrition nowadays. You are doing the work, but is it enough?
There is a bridge to fix that gap and ensure that your are receiving optimum nutrition.
