Hi, my name is Shamina. I am a DONA International Certified Birth Doula. I help my clients define and experience birth in a way that is true to themselves while feeling respected, valued and safe through the prenatal, birth and postpartum stages. I believe that every birth experience is unique and can be profoundly empowering. My goal is to empower birthing people by truly listening to them and advocating for the individualized care they deserve. I live in Brooklyn, am a mother of two girls and am also a certified yoga instructor. My yoga practice grounds and informs my work as a doula as I encourage people to connect to their bodies and articulate labor and delivery through mindfulness, movement and a focus on breath. As a lactation Counselor, and IBCLC in training, I am dedicated to helping new parents with lactation support during the early postpartum days and weeks.
With each birth, I am honored to witness the inner wisdom and strength of birthing people as they bring their babies into this world and transition into parenthood.
