Birth and Postpartum Doula Services
I am so happy you're Here!
About Imperfect Mama Doula Services
I came into birth work with the ambition of providing a supportive and non-judgmental space for all growing families. I am an avid promoter of birthing parent centered care, and providing a space where my clients can gain knowledge on what to expect during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum and feel empowered in making those decisions.
Being the mother of two beautiful babies has been such a profound part of my life, but has also held some of the most challenging moments of my life. I had many struggles navigating pregnancy and the identity changes that come with motherhood; at times still finding myself in that space. It took me a long time to be comfortable with myself and to learn how to prioritize self.
Through much self-discovery and self-reflection, I began to feel like I could find another layer of joy along with motherhood.
Entering this space as a doula, my mission now is to give that feeling of empowerment and self-assurance to the families I serve. Showing them, that whatever style or way you want to come into the space of parenthood is validated and very much welcomed. There is no magic equation that says you have to be the picture-perfect parent, but instead to ensure that you feel confident and secure in yourself, so that you can show up for the one's you love.
With all of that said, the name Imperfect Mama Doula Services came from the lesson that took me 4 years too long to learn; which is that perfection is not what we need. We need to be authentic, honest, and lean in on our support systems. I want to be here to provide those tools to clients; so that they can create a safe and sacred home for their expanding families. I am not here to tell you things are going to always be picture-perfect, but to show you ways you can prepare your mind and body to become the parent you aspire to be.
