Read Bio

Amira believes education and support are the keys to peaceful and trauma-free birth and postpartum experiences without unnecessary interventions. She is passionate about educating her clients on their rights and helping them go into labor feeling educated, empowered, and being generally aware of what to expect so that they can remain in a safe space and avoid any fear cycles approaching delivery. During prenatal visits, she educates her clients and their partners on evidence-based birth facts and leads them in meditations and affirmations crafted specifically for them as they work to release any fears and/or traumas surrounding this experience. Following each birth, she helps her clients process their experiences and reflect in a safe space.

Amira believes that with nurturing and support, the birth and postpartum periods are truly beautiful experiences. She believes a birthing person who is physically, mentally, emotionally, and energetically nurtured will be the best version of themselves as a parent and as an overall person. As a mother to a rainbow baby, she can empathize with parents as well as hold space in less-than-ideal situations. The birth of her daughter, as well as her overall pregnancy and postpartum journey, are what sparked her passion to nurture the birthing person through doula work. She is very aware of the disparities for minority birthing people in general, but specifically for black birthing people, and is proactive in helping to fill in the gaps. Her approach to birth and postpartum is ancestral. Her core belief is that birth is sacred and should be treated as such. 

With her background in holistic wellness coaching, Amira is able to help set the tone for a healthy birth and postpartum experience that will translate well beyond your time with her as a birth/postpartum client.
