Hi community of Moms!

 

I wanted to introduce myself.  I am a doula and child birth mentor training with Birthing From Within.  I offer doula support and child birth classes to couples in the New River Valley, Roanoke, and Floyd, VA.  I am a wife and a mother of a 3 year old. 

 

I began to hear my call to birth work when I became pregnant with my daughter Abigail in 2008. I met a doula and hired her to assist in my birth. As I was pregnant, I thought about the women I met living in South Sudan. I reflected upon the many women who give birth in Africa and other developing countries without the option of medicine or the care of a doctor. I am amazed by their primordial, instinctual, knowing and awareness of their bodies, moment to moment.  As I support women in birth, I help to cultivate this knowing and awareness.  

 

I received amazing support from my doula and my husband in my birth. Through their support and trusting in God's design of my body, my experience was beautiful and empowering. I truly felt like a strong warrior in each moment. This experience awakened my desire to support women in their pregnancy, labor, and birth.

 

I believe every woman has the strength and knowledge within herself, and with the help of her birth team, to give birth mindfully and beautifully.  Birth is an amazing and mysterious journey that a woman remembers the rest of her life. 

 

I am here to support couples as they enter into the joy of parenthood!  Check out my website for more info. www.rhythmofbirth.net  and please help spread the word about doula support!

 

Blessings,

I am sorry I used my business name instead of my name for my profile.  At this time, I can't purchase an advertising package.  Is there a way I can change my profile business name to my name, Shalene Massie?  I changed my avatar too.

 

Thanks!

 

Shalene
