Iman's Message to You

Congratulations on your upcoming birth! I look forward to meeting you and learning more about how I can support you during this important time. As a doula and childbirth educator, I combine evidenced-based training and my personal experience as a mother of five when supporting families. It is my mission to educate and support expectant mothers from diverse cultural, religious and economic backgrounds, so they can create their own vision for a healthy and empowering birth. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to set up a time to meet online or in person.
