Hello, my name is Lama Kawsara and I’m the doula behind Noor Birth! My journey to becoming a birth doula all began with my own birth experiences. During my first birth I was seeing an OB and planning a hospital delivery but longed for more connection and felt like something was missing. In my third trimester, I switched my provider to Midwife Amanda and birthed at a birth center. I finally found what I was looking for from my births. I felt empowered and connected throughout my labor and felt I was in charge of my choices. After my second birth, which was another successful water birth at the center, I began attending close friends and relatives births. By the time I had my third baby at home, I had decided that the birth world is where I belong.
In early 2020 I completed a doula workshop training through the Academy of Certified Birth Educators. Soon after, my business Noor Birth was born and I began taking on clients. In the summer of 2020 I attended a 5 week Hypnobirth course to understand the philosophy and broaden my skill set as a doula. This year I completed certification in Bengkunk Belly Binding and provide it as an option to postpartum mamas.
My role as your doula is to help you feel empowered, educated and supported through out your labor and birth. My philosophy is to support all women in their choices. This is your birth and you should reach each decision fully informed and supported. I will be your advocate through the whole process. I will strive to provide support to ensure your birth is a beautiful and memorable experience.
