Birth Doula, Eugene, Oregon.
Dar a luz, meaning to give light, is the Spanish phrase for childbirth. Through childbearing (and rearing), a woman brings forth new light to our world not only through the life of a child, but through her own life as a new mother. Giving birth marks an important right of passage into motherhood. Every woman deserves to have continuous loving support to be present and witness such a earth enlightening event.
Our world is ripe with potential to overcome the many injustices we face on a daily basis. Serving as a birth doula is my way to advocate for peaceful healing in our world: the moment of birth is sacred opportunity to introduce a newborn to a life of love that will continue to blossom through childhood and adulthood. Upholding what I learned in training, it is not my intention to persuade or influence women to make any specific decisions. Rather, through my compassion and commitment to continuous support, I hope I can inspire hospital staff, new families, and my own personal community to look at childbirth practice in a new light.
Thank you for visiting.
