Hello! My name is Mabel Bashorun, I am a certified birth doula, lactation counselor, and childbirth educator. My aim is to encourage, educate, and support women throughout the pregnancy, labor, delivery, and postpartum experience. I believe all women have options when it comes to labor and can experience confidence and calm when the day nears to give birth. It is my honor to serve women as they transition into motherhood through the sacred experience of birth.
To provide emotional and physical support in the childbirth process
To facilitate peaceful relations between you and your medical professionals
To encourage your acquisition of resources pertaining to your particular needs, i.e. nutrition, exercise, parenting, breastfeeding, etc.
To help you expand your knowledge in areas of prenatal care, lactation, labor, delivery, postpartum
To inspire your confidence as a mother
To help you prepare for the incredible adventure of growing a family!
“what is the greatest lesson a woman should learn
that since day one
she's already had everything she needs within herself
it's the world that convinced her she did not”
