By nature I love to lead, but the last few years I have had the opportunity to embrace being lead. I have studied the methods and habits of some Phenomenal Entrepreneurs and Doulas. While also taking part in an intensive buisness training through a partnership with Emory School of business. This has given me the propel I needed when starting and now growing my own buisness. 
My aim is not to prove I know it all, but to give you the tools I use to gain paying clients and to ensure a high level of customer service.

Hi! I’m Ximena. A doula, yogi, and lover of mama earth- Pachamama. I believe our bodies have everything they need to birth, we just have to trust and tune into ourselves. .
.
A bit more on my background: 
I am a New Orleans native and graduated from Tulane with a Masters in Public Health in Epidemiology. My graduate studies led me to Argentina where I designed and conducted a public health initiative focused on pregnant women’s health in rural areas. I returned to New Orleans and worked in a fertility center, deepening my interest in fertility and birthing. I have a great passion for supporting birthing persons and their partners and became a BEST-certified doula one year ago. Since then I have supported families in the New Orleans area by using positions and movements, as well as aromatherapy, to help create a comforting birthing experience. I hope to support many more families through the new year before starting a midwifery program Fall 2020. .

“...el Dr. Wedagama dijo preguntó si quería saber el sexo del bebé. La madre contestó “Oh, no, esta Placenta y este bebé necesitan ser respetados; esperaré hasta que salgan para saber si es un niño o una niña. Estoy totalmente feliz de no necesitar una cesárea, gracias. ” Tres semanas más tarde, Radek Edi nació en un baño de flores. Cuando salió de la Placenta la pusimos flotando en una palangana y la cubrimos totalmente con flores presiosas, agradeciendo al ángel Placenta del bebé por llevar a cabo un milagro.” (La Placenta, El chakra olvidado, Lim, 2010, pág. 208)

Misconception is that I’m there to replace your partner or tell your doctor what to do. I am not there to do anything but emotionally and physically support you AND your partner to help him support you as best as he can (we alternate on the hip squeezes 😉) and helping you achieve a positive birth experience 💗 📷 @kalliecaton .

Meet the Owner and Doula at Aulora Birth Services

Hi! My name is Marisa Payne and I am a BEST certified doula (@bestdoula). I created Aulora Birth Services to help serve families welcoming in a new little human. I chose the name “Aulora” because it is derived from the word “laurel”, which is a plant that was woven into wreaths that were used to crown warriors in Ancient Greece and Rome. Today, the laurel wreath symbolizes victory, honor, and peace. Birth is hard. But that doesn’t mean you need to feel defeated, unsafe, scared, or incapable at any time in your pregnancy or birth. Your body knows just what to do. Trust yourself. You deserve to feel victorious and in control! Birth is triumphant!

As a doula, I want to be there to hold space for you to birth how you want to birth. I want to be there to make sure whoever you have there as your support team (partner, friends, family) is as involved as you need them to be. I want to be there to make sure you are able to communicate your wishes and needs to your medical team. I want to be there to support you as you welcome this new life into your family. 💕

Fall feels for this placenta print. What nurtured baby for 9 months is now on its way to nurturing mama through her postpartum. #placentamagic 
Placenta consumption is a common part of postpartum  healing in many cultures. Benefits include more stable moods, increased milk supply, and decreased healing time. We process placentas into capsules and tinctures following food safety guidelines. Ask us if it can help you. ~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~• #birth #baby  #doula #postpartumdoula

A pregnant girl is supposed to get very dhongy (deceitful); she pretends to be in pain, demands attention, “craves” for a lot of things that she could be without. The husband has a very tender love for her at this time. Even though she says, “do not leave me alone. Give me this to wear, that to eat. Stay with me all the time.” He is glad to do so, she is to be the mother of his child. She must be treated like a flower, for otherwise the light may fade from the blossom. - Verruer Edwin about India (Birth, Meltzer, 1973, page 19)

Even in pregnancy, your body is your body! We often hear women say "They won't let me..." or "I have to....." But truthfully, the choices are yours - even if you chose to eat some fries 😉

We talk about options and consent in our classes - most of which we offer in-home or online. Let us know if we can help you. ~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~• #birth #baby  #doula #postpartumdoula

At Venus and the Lunar Child, a Doula provides prenatal, labor, postpartum, and lactation support. We do not advocate for you and we do not empower you. We believe that your power lies within YOU. Because of that, we strive to be reminders of your strength and resilience so that you  might be encouraged to advocate for yourself. Our number one goal is to make space for your vulnerability and help to create environments that make you feel confident and powerful. Because of that, we have been shown to dramatically improve perinatal and maternal health outcomes. We believe that birth is a normal physiological process and we also understand that it is an experience unique to the individual. Whichever way you choose to birth we believe that your birth experience will be miraculous worthy of the most compassionate doula support.

Not my image but I just want you to see the hip squeeze! Having a natural birth is so much easier to do when you can have a doula help with pain management #counterpressure and #hipsqueezes. I’m that doula! #tampadoula #tampadoulas #bestdoula #passionatedoula #tampapregnancy

Big ol' jar of placenta goodness & a lot of cord love on the way to nourish a mama today.

The placenta is an amazing organ that the body creates, helps grow and sustain life in the womb, and provides bio available nutrients and hormones that can be consumed after birth!

Properties including:
♡ Prolactin and Human Placental Lactogen (stimulates milk production)
♡ Oxytocin (bonding, feel good, contracts uterus, heals wounds)
♡ Corticotropin Releasing Hormone (relieves stress, supports adrenals, fights depression)
♡ Progesterone (prepares mammories for lactation) ♡ Hemoglobin (transports oxygen throughout the body, increases iron stores) ♡ Placental Growth Hormone (promotes break down of stored fats, sending them to baby) ♡ Estrogen (increases uterine strength and prepares mammories for lactation)
♡ Phosphorus (aids digestion, hormone balance, cell repair, and nutrient utilization)
♡ Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (regulates metabolism) ♡ Cortisone (relieves inflammation, pain, and swelling) ♡ Urokinase Inhibiting Factor and Factor XIII (lessons bleeding, and promotes faster healing) ♡ Interferon (enhances immunity and inhibits virus reproduction)

Let us know if we can help you ♡ ~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~• #birth #baby  #doula #postpartumdoula

I have 6 kids, I understand what it is to be a busy mom. I also understand how scary it is to be new at this. Or how tiring it is, to be doing this all. Day. long. 
It's so easy to see this fun happy moment, but I want you to know, we went to Wendy's because everyone was going crazy from being hangry, from a day of soccer and football. 2 min. After this pic, they spilled the pop. Then we got ANOTHER snarky comment about how many people we made. 
But I look at this picture and I see that THESE are the best days of my life. I'm surrounded with all my people. We are done having more people, and I get to just sink in. And let the pop spill, let the maniacal laughs ring, let the fries get soaked, and enjoy how I have "to many kids for 1 family"

Sometimes support looks that simple. But looks can be deceiving, because the doula support in this picture is so much more than the cool rag.

What else do you see?

We're offering our childbirth education courses as a series or individual courses so you can take what you need and not what you don't. AND We're offering them ONLINE to make them accessible and convenient (yep, you can take them from your phone in your pjs if you want!). Send us a message to register! There's still time to sign up for the last October session & be on the lookout for a Sunday afternoon series in December ♡ ~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~• #birth #baby  #doula #postpartumdoula

The beauty of a gentle caesarean! ♥️Mom and dad get to be a part of their birthing process, even during a c-section utilizing this clear drape during that process.

Repost @bestdoula “The clear drape.

It's kinda an amazing option for Cesarean birth...if it is offered.

Are you seeing this option where you doula?”

See the top left image.... thats how the baby's head should be when coming into the birth canal during labour. Nice and flexed. If the head is tiled too far back, it can cause a longer labour and difficult birth.

Learning about the birth world through BEST was such a great learning experience for me. The image I had of the birth world was through the Internet and TV shows (which were all majority emergency hospital births) since that was all I had. Now I have a proper understanding that birth doesn't have to be chaos and highly medicated. #bestdoula #dallasdoula

This is doula support.❤️ Well said from @bestdoula -  Doulas often answer the question "what do doulas do"  The age-old answer for this has been "we provide physical, emotional, and informational support." But you see, this definition sells us very short.

Sure, we provide physical support, sometimes literally - holding hips, legs, hair. However, a doula's ability to physically support their client isn't really that - it's that we are 100% responsive, anticipating needs before they are voiced by using our knowledge of our client and our understanding of birth. Physical support sounds like training wheels - and we are so much more than that.

Yes, we provide emotional support. Pregnancy, birth, and postpartum are emotional times. But what doulas provide is unwavering faith in their client's abilities. Doulas  can slow the room when it's spinning, be an anchor when clients need to hold on, act as a sounding board when they need to roar. We understand how very hard birthing people are working even when it looks easy.

Yes we do have a vast amount of knowledge about pregnancy, physiologically normal birth, cesarean births and postpartum. But truly, providing endless amounts of information can create a divide in the relationship we build with clients. Instead, of being the source of all information for clients, doulas are the bridge to that information and other resources.

Our clients,  already know more about how they will birth their baby then we do. Doulas both know and honor that truth.

...perhaps it’s because I’ve dreamed of being the designated photographer at the moment of a child’s birth. Or, my proclivity to grapple for meaningful moments... Nothing is so sublime as the “firsts”. The gaze of a son at his father, and his father at him. That moment when words don’t suffice, and volumes are spoken just at that first gaze. I can honestly stare at this story for years and find something profound every time! .

Check out this beautiful #umbilicalcord  Isn't it amazing that this cord, containing 2 arteries and one vein, is what connected the baby to his oxygen tank, aka the #placenta? Did you know that a thick cord is a sign of a healthy pregnancy and that you have the option to delay the cord clamp until it stops pulsating blood from the placenta to the baby? This cord was clamped and cut quickly due to a medical need, however some of it was saved and banked @cryocell for use in the future if needed. Isn't life amazing?
