Hi! I am so happy you're here! My name is Amanda Githaiga (say it with me gi-thigh-ger, yes, the "a" says "er". I don't make the rules).
I am a woman of God with a passion for all things birthy. My handsome hubby and I have been married for over a decade and I can't be more thankful to have a partner like him. We have two sweet girls, Lilianna Rose and Jasmine JuneRose. My business was named in their honor and they are the heartbeat behind what I do. During my pregnancy with Lilianna I was left in awe of the female body's Divine design. During her birth I was left in awe due to the lack of support and little adherence to evidence based common sense birth practices. Jasmine's birth lit my sole on fire and left me zealous about women reclaiming birth and demanding more than the statuesque. As middle Tennessee's crunchy Christian doula my passion lies in helping families do just that.
I believe that birth is not something to be feared, but something to be celebrated and embraced as it transforms you into someone your former self couldn't even imagine.
I believe that love is the cornerstone for an empowered birth and support her foundation.
I believe that no matter how or where you give birth as long as there is a solid foundation and a firm cornerstone will find your inner power.
I believe that you have sovereignty over your body and will provide you with evidenced based information when appropriate.
I believe that you feeling satisfied with your birth is the best goal, not simply "healthy baby, healthy mama."
Finally, I believe that birth, when done with love, support and respect has the potential to change the world as we know it.
Water is my happy place
Chai is better than coffee
I like rainy days
I don’t like to be the center of attention
I’m a podcast junky
Sunlight and sleep are two of the best medicines
I can't wait to talk to you!
