Hello, I am Lindsay Foster, of Foster My Flow. I have successfully blended a career as a Birth Doula, Yoga Instructor and Registered Nurse. In my space, wellness is encouraged and comes to life through the supportive, holistic practices of yoga, meditation and birth work. I am a Brooklyn based New Yorker sharing my passion to bring folks another step closer to complete wellness.
As a Doula, I believe it is most important to listen and understand the needs and plans of the birthing family, to respect their wishes, to be intentional, resourceful, and a reliable support person. I am here to assist families in receiving access to information and promoting self-advocacy, which is necessary to make informed decisions about their health and pregnancy. This means families receive proper care and education in all areas of their reproductive lifespan. A healthy life begins before birth. The better the health and stronger the family structure, the higher the probability of having healthy children and so on. Which also has a profound, healing generational impact.
I am a wife and a mother to four brilliant children. I enjoy painting, music, going for walks, dancing, me time and getting together with loved ones (because who doesn't love a dope party and great company!) I created Foster My Flow in December 2020 to “foster” community, confidence, and healing through an offering of equitable, direct support in Black and underserved communities. I am excited to extend this love and commitment to women's health by planting more seeds towards becoming a Nurse Midwife!
To date I have supported nearly twenty births, majority of which have been unmedicated, vaginal births. As well as two cesarean sections and three inductions. I offer postpartum support to promote physical and emotional healing by "Mother the mother/birthing person".
May our paths align.
