LOZ OUR POSTNATAL DOULA
A place called birth.jpg

Loz is bringing traditional postnatal care back for modern Mamas.

 

“Becoming a Mama is a massive transition and rite of passage so it’s important to me that you have the right kind of support”.

 

Loz wants every Newborn Mama’s postpartum experience to be transformative and supportive in a way that truly nourishes and nurtures her. She believes if you nurture the Mother in the first forty days, you nurture the home for the next forty years. With her by your side and in your home, you will come out of this strong, intuitive, capable, assured, heard, held and prepared, ready to embrace mothering a newborn so that you can enjoy your postpartum experience.

 

As your Doula she will nurture you, Mama, so you can nurture your baby “I see a lack of support and understanding around what it is that the mother requires and how potent this transition is. As a culture I see us failing mother’s, day after day. I am here to change the narrative. We talk about birth and pregnancy and then the mother is forgotten in postpartum. There is a sacredness of bringing life into the world and the transition into motherhood. This has been lost. Through my work, I will support, empower & hold space for the maiden as she crosses the threshold. When a mother births a baby, the baby births a mother. She is as vulnerable as her newborn. I am here to mother the mother. So she can rest and recover, restore her vitality, replenish her reserves and care for the mother (so all you will need to do is learn about your newborn baby).

 

I am very focused on bringing the sacred back into our modern postpartum and witnessing you bloom as a mother. Encompassing the sacred ritual of motherhood and conscious parenting through ancient women’s wisdom”. A new Mama may feel isolated, exhausted and confused and while being desperately in love with her new baby, it can seem like the world she’d known has disappeared overnight along with her sense of self. By listening deeply to your inner self instead of looking outward, you will become a strong, confident Mama guided by the innate intuition and wisdom you carry within you.

 

Deep down you know what is best for you, your baby and your family. I believe in one-on-one connection and as your Postpartum Doula, I will guide you gently, nurture and respect whole-heartedly your unique rite of passage into Mamahood. Sadly, the importance of nurturing this gentle transition from birth to Mamahood seems to have been lost in our frenzied Western culture. In the past (and, still, thankfully in some cultures) most communities accommodate and encourage a gentle transition after birth. I believe that this is not just essential during postpartum, but it will set you up for life as a Mama. I believe in slow postpartum.
