A Doula is someone who upholds Our birthing culture by aiding, assisting, comforting, informing and supporting Mommy's and Daddy's and their Families through their pregnancy, birth, labor, and postpartum experience.
Being a Mother of three children, (two girls and one boy) and a Doula and Holistic Childbirth Wellness Instructor through UBUNTU WELLNESS ACADEMY, I use so much of my own personal experience during my work.

I have experience working along side of midwives in home birth settings as well as hospital and birthing center facilities and am continuing my education to pursue my education in Traditional Midwifery. I am also a certified RA Sekhi/Reiki Energy Healer receiving my education through RA SEKHI Healing Arts Temple and have worked in the Los Angeles community as a parenting/prenatal instructor for over 12 years assisting, instructing and advocating for mothers with mental disabilities and there babies and children.

After Birth Yoni Steaming
Assists Mommy with restoration, energy and the vitality she needs to support herself, her baby and the healing of her body. Childbirth is a serious ordeal involving all systems of the body, as well as the spirit & mind. One of the ways we prevent postpartum depression is through Postpartum herbal tea blends that administer restoration and revitalization qualities of healing while providing nutrients and vitamins to all systems of the body. This combination after birth plus the love, observation, research and assurance from a Doula for a new Mommy gives her more strength and confidence in handling her situation whether it be older siblings she has to care for, family transition challenges, relationship challenges, and in some cases a lost of a love one in the same time that a birth occurs. There are times when souls leave this earthly plane and arrive at the same time and many times we really do not give thought to the special circumstances that Mothers have to go through to adjust after having a new baby, but Starlilly Birthing does. That is why we make it our number one priority to provide this type of care & consideration in our Doula package.
