More Info

Hi! I'm Olivyah and I've been a doula (and mama) for the past five years. 

Throughout my journey I've witnessed how holistic birth support can improve the experiences and overall outcome of birth for mothers and families. I started this journey teaching myself about birth and becoming a doula to serve my community. When I was able to understand how the mind-body connection really impacts our experience of birth it changed my entire birth journey!

Mamananda, is both a mission and mantra that speaks to our ability as women to experience blissful births and motherhood journeys. We aim to not only bring wellness resources to the community (prenatal yoga, birth education sessions, birth support) but also intentionally help mothers build community so that they are not isolated. Village is medicine,  in a disconnected and disjointed culture. 

Funds that are raised here will be used to:

  • offer free and low cost birth education classes in the community 
  • offer free and low cost prenatal yoga
  • put on wellness events such as Soul Care Sunday on a consistent basis  
  • offer free and low cost doula services 
  • compensate the team of women putting this altogether !
