A BIT ABOUT ME
Hi, my name is Zaire.
Congratulations on your pregnancy! As you enter this exciting time of life, I would feel honored to assist and support you and your partner through your journey.
Becoming a parent is one of life’s most transformative milestones. As a mother of two wonderful boys, I have experienced both the exhilaration and harrowing triumphs that can accompany two very different births. Despite delivering one of my sons with meds and one without I wish I had known then what I know now.
As both a parent and a seasoned nurse, I understand how important it is to be supported in making the best decisions regarding you and your baby’s care. Each birth journey is unique and beautiful and I have a strong desire to support all birthing women. You deserve to walk away from your birth feeling confident that you made informed decisions for yourself and your family.
Having trained as a doula, lactation educator, and herbalist and now as a Traditional Birth Attendant, I offer many relaxation and labor coping techniques, herbal alternatives to support challenges in birth and postpartum for the birthing mother.
Because I believe God created pregnancy and birth as sacred, fundamentally normal, physiological processes, I commit to respecting and protecting the birth space, allowing labor to take its normal course, in order to help each woman birth naturally, safely, and confidently. Essential components of holistic care include attentive, skilled, and evidence-based support, establishing a caring atmosphere, limiting unnecessary interventions, education and empowerment of the mother to make her own decisions about her care, encouraging her self-expression, and respecting her privacy.
Teaching a woman how her body works in labor, to trust her body’s wisdom and how to surrender fully to the process is a key goal. Essentially, replacing fear with knowledge and power.
I love working with lots of types of families including single parents, LGBTQ individuals and co-parenting families, adoption, surrogacy, and beyond! I offer a variety of service packages that meet the needs of any family in preparation for their birthing journey.
You deserve to walk away from your birth feeling confident that you made informed decisions for your family. Take that step today to achieve the birth experience you’re looking for!
It would be nothing short of an honor to be by your side in this transformative experience that is birth.
“Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers – strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.”
