Points of Light Birth Doulas bring Knowldge, Advocacy, and Beauty
:: WE ARE ::
Myth Busters. Stigma Slayers. Authentic Collaborators. Dynamic Knowledge Keepers. Anchors when the Waters Get Choppy. Lighthouses when you Struggle To See the Star Map. Robust Layers of Support Grounded in Continuity of Care.
We serve the Portland, Oregon community by bringing a wealth of experience to families whom:
- Currently live with or have previously lived with anxiety, depression, trauma & the stigma that comes along with it
- Identify as POC and/or LGBTQIA2+ :: commmunities disproportionately affected by the rising crisis in health disparities during birth
- Strive to incorporate meaningful spirit or spiritual practice across your experience
- Prefer homebirth but will birth in the hospital due to reasons beyond your control
- Choose to birth at home
We delicately balance conversations about coping styles and fears, with active movement, all the while getting curious about how you envision the journey to meeting your new little one can unfold as a transformative experience for you and your family.
EXPERIENCES & WORLD VIEWS MATTER
We honor what you bring. Coping through pain, stress, and trauma are influenced by life experiences.
Keep your sense of humor--it's a priceless gem which keeps you remembering where it's all at. If you can't be a hero, you can at least be funny while being a chicken. --Ina May Gaskin in Spiritual Midwifery
