because everyone deserves equal access to quality care
ABOUT DEEPLY ROOTED
This is not your usual birth worker space. I am not here to sell you a product. I am here as a resource. A friend in the business. A friend with a network.
We all know that the maternal health care system is absolutely broken. Racist. Classist. Adequate care is almost entirely unavailable to people who are not personally wealthy and as a result, low-income individuals are continuously subject to trauma. Why, with such an abundance of private birth workers in the community, are those who need these services the most, are pushed aside?
This is the problem I seek to address, and I don't do it alone. I work with a group of amazing and generous birth educators, lactation specialists, doulas, midwives, and other support people who are able to be flexible with their pricing and even provide pro-bono services when needed.
The mission of Deeply Rooted Births is, simply put, to make access to necessary education and care available to everyone who desires it.
After having given birth to my first-born in 2017, I was in complete shock. I prepared every detail. I did everything in accordance with my plan in order to have the birth of my dreams. I intended on loving every moment of motherhood. However, that was not what the universe had in mind for me. Instead of an unmedicated birth-center birth, I ended up with a medicated hospital birth. Instead of gracefully transitioning into motherhood, I was in a persistent fog. As I began to re-define myself and re-find myself after what was a rocky transition, I knew that supporting pregnant, birthing, and postpartum people through these milestones was my calling.
As a doula, it is not my goal to set the expectations for you, nor is it is not my goal to push you onto a specific path. My goal is to help you find the tools to receive the educational information that you need in order to have an informed, safe, and empowered birth experience and transition into parenthood.
Hiring a private birth worker for support or education should not be a luxury entitled to a small percentage of the population. Education and safety are your right and as such, I promise to always keep my care accessible to anyone in any income bracket. I will continue to work with people who make the same promises. The only way to combat the maternal health care crisis is to reach more people, and that is what I am here to do.
