Sirena (V): Certified Sacred Pregnancy Instructor / Certified Hypnobabies® Hypno-Doula / Birth Doula, Omaha Metro

Certified Sacred Pregnancy Instructor

Certified Sacred Pregnancy Instructor

My first conscious steps on the birth worker path began for me in May of 2009, two years after my move to Omaha.

 
In 2009, while camping at a lovely retreat center in northeastern Kansas, I met a beautiful, amazingly kind woman at the tail end of her last trimester. She was experiencing anxiety about her impending birth, was all alone with 2 young children, and was in desperate need of support. Before I knew it, I had volunteered to be there when she had the baby. Three weeks later and two states away from home, I was blessed to be able to provide support during labor when she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl.
 
When all was said and done, I hitched a ride with a trucker and arrived back home 4 hours later exhausted and elated. That day I became a doula, even though I had no idea what a doula was.
 
Since then, I have completed training given by DONA International, and have attended many different types of births: dual-doula, VBAC, water, completely drug-free, induction, augmented, first-time, veterans, with and without partner support, so fast the doc is too late to catch – I love them all. Every day I get to go to work I am excited and glad to get the call.
 
I am currently working on many certifications simultaneously: CD (DONA) and Herbology for Women’s Health. In addition, I am a certified massage therapist (since 2004), an aromatherapist (since 2003), have been studying herbology (since 2007), and am a Certified Hypnobabies® Hypno-Doula (2013). I study oriental medicine as a complement to my acupressure training, and at some point, I may venture into midwifery. My goal is to never stop learning, because there is always more to know. And the more I know, the better I am able to help you.
 
A small part of my job is to make the birth experience easier and to help ensure moms are as comfortable, implement the birth plan as much as possible, and give partners the support they need so all they have to do is focus on mom. Birth is not an emergency – of all the memories you will accumulate in your lifetime, the day you brought a new life into this world will always be with you.
 
My husband and I currently live a frugal, green, natural parenting lifestyle with our youngest darling daughter, now a toddler, in tow. (She’s really leading the way and we just try and keep up!)
 
Whether it’s cloth diapering, breastfeeding, vegan cooking, organic gardening, or baby wearing, we do it, or know someone who does. In keeping with my personal code of ethics, I gladly work with anyone regardless of race, religion, creed, marital or economic status, sexual orientation or identification. What matters to me is that you get the support you need, and I would consider it an honor, and myself truly blessed, to be part of your grand adventure.
 
I currently offer Sacred Pregnancy support groups and childbirth education classes to women and their partners.

Blessed be!
