Heart Centered Doula Care and Wellness

Holistic doula and womb centered herbalist. I adore helping mamas and birthing people in the most natural way possible. 

What's a doula?

Woman Caregiver

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. 

Heart Centered Support

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. 

Cultivator of Birth Experience

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.

Placenta Encapsulation

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 Steaming

What is it?



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.
