What we're about

DOULA IS DEFINED AS: "A PERSON TRAINED TO PROVDE ADVICE, INFORMATION, EMOTIONAL SUPPORT, AND PHYSICAL COMFORT TO A MOTHER BEFORE, DURING, AND JUST AFTER CHILDBIRTH"--www.merriam-webster.com. I ADD-- PREGNANCY CHANGES LIFE, A DOULA SPIRIT IS NEEDED THROUGHOUT YOUR LIFE. DOULAS--BIRTH COACH --- LIFE COACH-- MENTOR-- FRIEND.

Within this group are auxiliary groups to "doula" you as needed:

"MOM"ents -- A mom's support group. First time moms, many times mom, moms in spirit, women gathering to listen and support. Meets: First Sunday of each month, with playgroup opportunities throughout the month.

MARY'S HEART: Grief support. Support for miscarriages, infant loss, stillbirth. Support to face and embrace a new life (pregnancy, adoption). Bringing Validation to YOUR Child. MEETS: First Saturday of each month for mass, a walk on the beach, and chit chat coffee/tea.

ANGELS IN OUR HEARTS (AIOH)-- A Women's Mentoring Group. Embracing women at their crossroads by establishing relationships built on TRUST, GUIDANCE, and SUPPORT.

TO FULLY RESPECT THE INDIVIDUAL -- NO JUDGEMENT -- ONLY ACCEPTANCE.

ALSO FOR PROFESSIONAL DOULAS OR THOSE INTERESTED IN BECOMING DOULAS:

THE LADY LABOURS -- Meeting to help your doula business grow. Finding opportunities throughout the community to connect you with clients. I'm looking for women that will think out of the box for ways to touch the many women who need YOU and don't even know how much they need YOU.

I am a trained doula, having received my formal training through Stillbirthday University. As a trained doula, I am able to offer a wealth of advise and information, however, as a mother/grandmother/foster/adoptive mom, I can offer real life, practical, truthful, yet emotional aware support, especially when facing birth fears--"what is birth like?", fear from previous losses, high anxiety, or just nerves.

The group is focused on supporting a mother/family during all phases, therefore, I will offer opportunities to grow in the each life stage. Beginning from the moment a women finds out she is pregnant, learning how to be a wife, and mother, and as the child grows from baby, toddler, child, teen, and adult. A new life changes your life, support is here. It is my hope that the group will serve all mothers, fathers, basically families in welcoming the changes in their lives. It is my desire to learn from you. I would love to listen to you and see what I can offer you.

If you are a new expectant mommy, or a mommy continuing in the gift of life, and have concerns or fears, please come. If you a mom who had a miscarriage or previous difficulties before, during, or after birth, please come. If you are a mommy who just brought home your newborn, in whatever circumstance and just need someone to talk to, please come. I am here for you. NO WORRIES, JUST PRAYERS!

I hope you will come to the meetups to just talk.

You are amazing! I can't wait to meet you.

May Our Sorrowful Mother hold you close as you prepare to embrace your journey, whatever it may be.

Prayers to the Precious Blood Of Jesus

Location visible to members

Prayer for Endurance through the Coming Chastisement (13 July 1998) "My children, pray that this period you are living in now will be shortened. Pray also that your faith will not fail. Be on your guard. Be alert and watch always...Many will give up their faith at the last minute when everything is about to pass . . . This period will suddenly catch up with many people because they are not prepared . . . How many of you will fight and drive back My adversary, conquer, and bring the captives home?...My children, learn this prayer and pray it always especially during the hour of trials...When My people rejected Me and condemned Me and said, "Crucify Him! Crucify Him!" I looked up to heaven and prayed to My Father and said..." Merciful and loving Father, Your wish is that all men shall be saved. Kindly look on Your rejected and condemned Son Who suffered many tortures and will suffer many through the sins of Your people. Look and see what sin has done to your only-begotten Son. I offer for all Your people who are living in these ungodly and wicked days, all the tortures, pains, rejection and shame of your Son, Jesus Christ, to You, for the faith to withstand trials and patience to withstand long torture. May they through the suffering of Your only Son, fight to the end. Amen. Our Lord's torture - increase our faith. Precious Blood of Jesus Christ - save us. Amen.
