Hello! My name is Fametta Darling and I come to this work after years in more academic shoes. My background is in Project Management, but after experiencing the birth of my son, I knew that my real passion was the hands-on work of serving birthing families as a holistic doula and childbirth educator. As a doula and birth worker, I offer holistic care for your pregnancy, birth and postpartum period; physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional elements are upheld and given space during this transformative time, to ensure a positive and empowering birth experience.
I believe that the process of human childbirth is a normal physiological process perfectly designed by nature to bring babies into the world. It is an instinctive, primal experience that has its own rhythm and pace which should be respected and honored. Women should have as much control as possible in determining their care, and should be encouraged to be active participants in decision-making and self-care. When informed, supported and encouraged to follow their own instincts, women can be active givers of birth rather than passive receivers of birth technology. Childbirth, when experienced in this way, has the potential to be a transformative event; women who take responsibility for their births and give birth to their babies under their own power, emerge from the experience empowered, with a new sense of their own capabilities. My philosophy emphasizes personalized care for each mother’s unique labor and delivery. It is my goal to help foster confidence in the mother and her ability to give birth.
I am also a proud and constant ally of the LGBTQA - identifying members of the birthing community.
