LEAN-IN TO A VIBRANT EXPERIENCE

We revere birth.  With birth comes a variety of joys as well as challenges to navigate.  Over and over clients express the desire to beautify their labor and birth experience, and to weave in practices that are grounded in spirituality.  We hold space and honor the container you create no matter the faith you practice.  Together we discover: what does your sacred heart and inner knowing yearn for?

Connection to Joy & Spititual Vibrancy Facilitate Unfolding

What brings you joy?  What spiritual practices are right up on the everyday surface of your life, or could be mined from your life?  The rush of the world has us in a bit of a tail spin, and as with most things during pregnancy, labor, birth, and postpartum, that all becomes magnified during this time.  It becomes easier to tap into what we fear and want to avoid rather than what we actually envision and want.  What this time period begs of you is to slow down and listen to the rhythm of your inner knowing.  Constraints are real: time, money, access, etc.  But at the end of each and every day, you are your wisest teacher, and until you need guidance, it is our job to entrain to you and your wants, not the other way around.

Seek what sparks a fire so fierce it will move you through to the end.  Joy, vibrancy, and beauty are as vital as choosing a care provider you trust.  Knowing what you do want & what you can let go of is a potent force for any birthing person.

The spirit and ritual of birth show up in many robes.  The robe which appears for you depends on a variety of influential factors including birth location as well as your hopes and wishes.  A dymanic power becomes strongly rooted in you when bringing forth practices and aesthetics that facilitate you to resonate as your most authentic self.  Our goal is to hone in on what brings connectedness, spirituality, and even magic to this most profound leg of your trek on the way to meeting your new little one.  This process is not only about your child being born, it is also about you being born as a parent and protector, guide and advocate.  When you bring what you love and cherish in a world full of disent right up to the surface, you also teach your kiddo to do the same.  So, why not begin that kind of relationship right from the start?

Telia brings a deep well of labor support skills and an equally deep well of compassion to every labor.  As a labor nurse I was always happy to see Telia because I knew she was my other half.  She is a gift to our community.

-Anna H

Luna was an incredible partner and especially helpful in providing information and clarifying options when we had to navigate more difficult decisions.

--LM

During 24+ hours of labor, Luna was a grounding and encouraging presence.  I honestly wouldn't have been able to make it as far as I did without her gentle reminders and suggestions.  And during the early postpartum period, she was there with validation and witnessing--she even saved me from an awful plugged duct by suggesting resources.  It makes me so happy to know Luna is providing doula support in our community!

 

--MZ

Luna stepped in when our trusted support withdrew from us in our time of need.  Luna got to know us and made us more comfortable with ourselves and each other.  I appreciate how you were there for both and all of us.

--JC

Luna offered wise reminders and witnessed me in my strength and believed in my Warrior Mama spirit--showing so much respect and empathy.  My heart is happy to know Luna is in my community supporting families before, during and after the intensity of birth.

--MZ

Telia was kind and supportive during my change of birth plan.  During the chaos the only thing I was focused on was Telia telling me it was going to be okay.  I would recommend Telia hands down to anyone who is having a baby.  The love and care she puts into not only the birth but checking on us after was absolutely amazing.  When we have our second, Telia will be there with us again.

-Jess S.

Luna brought great perspective to the table and really helped me prepare for bringing my babe into the world.

--BK

Luna's advice throughout all these months made me feel prepared and confident.

--AH

It was comforting to have Luna as part of the process and be able to talk through the last stages of pregnancy.  Also, to help further process our feelings about our first experience!  Thank you Luna for being on call so quickly for another rapid birth!

--SO

This was our third baby and our first time using a doula.  Luna helped me to process our previous birth experiences and really helped me to hone in on and actualize my desires for this birth.  Luna is warm as well as knowledgable, and had a wealth of resources for anything I sought support for.

 

--MS

I was somewhat frightened by the recent rising maternal mortality and child morbidity rates in Black families.  Telia not only assisted us through our pregnancy with information but was there as the liaison with our medical staff with things just didn't sound right.  She came to appointments, taught my husband techniques to help me in labor, and even visited after baby was born.  Overall Telia was an amazing doula and helped me have the most amazing birth experience.  I'm excited to work with her again when the time comes!

-Rina I

Luna stayed with us through the labor to postpartum transition, which I was nervous about.  She helped to make our postpartum room a sanctuary.  This effort helped me to feel cared for and comfortable in our space so that I could focus on resting and bonding as a family across the first couple of postpartum days in the hospital before going home.

--MS

Luna offered a warm, grounding, and heart-filled presence every step of the way.  We are so grateful she was part of our birth experience!

 

--C&HW

Luna provided a wealth of knowledge, gentle advice, and unwavering support through the third trimester and during our postpartum months.  Luna helped us navigate a number of issues during those chaotic, but precious, months...she even helped us find a nanny!  It was great to have someone--other than our medical care provider--whom we could turn to whenever we had questions or concerns.  I would, without hesitation, recommend Luna to anybody thinking about hiring a doula.

 

--JF

 I appreciated Luna's expertise, insight, and gentle, caring nature through out our prenatal visits, laborite, and postpartum visits.  We would recommend Luna to any family looking for support in their childbirth journey.

--MS

Spiritual life is first and foremost about commitment to a way of thinking and behaving that honors principles of inter-being and interconnectedness.  When I speak of the spiritual, I refer to the recognition within everyone that there is a place of mystery in our lives where forces that are beyond human desire or will alter circumstances and/or guide us.  I call these forces "divine spirit."  When we choose to lead a spirit-filled life, we recognize and celebrate the presence of transcendent spirits.
