My name is Paige. Becoming a doula has been a slow and gentle process that first began with Co leading an educational homestead near Salem, Oregon. The first births I attended and held space for were those of our 5 mama goats. Noticing and being with the intelligence of these beautiful creatures sparked my curiosity in exploring and learning more about the birthing world of humans. Around the same time of the goat birthings, I birthed the intention of life in this body; to become a good Grandmother. These words are simple and with them I am reminded who I am, and where I am going.
In December 2018 I moved from the homestead to Kauai to become a Licensed Massage Therapist at PCAB and the following year began Barbara Essman’s Doula training through the Sacred Birthing School which I completed this June. My Doula practice is ever-evolving and my passion is being and co-creating with women. Supporting other women and babies through the birthing process, we are more empowered and embodied and rewriting social norms for our ancestors who came before us and those who will be here when we are gone.
It is a great honor to be invited into this sacred space and my intention is to meet you exactly where you are at and welcome this process of initiation, for we are all birthed of mothers. It is important to me that I am a good fit somatically to you and your family and welcome an initial phone call to know best how to move forward. With all of my love~
