Welcome to Baraka Birth! I provide reproductive health, pregnancy and postpartum support and education as a community herbalist, student midwife and full-spectrum doula. My services are available in person to people and families from Boston through coastal New Hampshire, and via Skype, and I welcome all who seek natural alternatives and compassionate care for a full range of reproductive health needs. The work that I do is about building strong, empowered, resilient women, people, families, and communities.
Baraka is an Arabic word meaning blessing (berakhah in Hebrew), a sort of beneficent spiritual presence that can linger in a place, a person, or an experience. We learn and grow through all of our fertility experiences, whether they be challenging or rewarding (and usually a mix of both). I believe that all people deserve sensitive, personalized care through their experiences of fertility, pregnancy, miscarriage, abortion, and more.
Everything is swinging: heaven, earth, water, fire,
and the secret one slowly growing a body.
