My name is Iman. I am a mother of 5, a social worker, doula, birth educator and passionate birth activist.
In my own life as well as in my professional experience, I find that women need more than just support with their births. We need a community of support to call on once the initial congratulations are over, family has gone back to work, and sleep deprivation begins to set in. We need to feel that we are not alone and that our questions and insecurities are shared by other mothers. We also need evidence-based guidance to help us through each stage of the journey (whether we are having our first or seventh child).
We have all heard that it takes a village to raise a child. While this is certainly true, it is my sincere belief that it takes a village to raise a mother. As mothers we are capable of doing it on our own. BUT, how much better would it be if we had a community of support to call upon? A community of birth professionals and mothers who have been there before us…of ears that listen, arms that hold and space that is saved. You are an AMAZING mother, and I would be honored to support you along the way while helping you to build your village!
I created The Mother’s Village in 2020, while supporting phenomenal women giving birth during unprecedented times and while I was also pregnant with my fifth child. During the pandemic, it became increasingly evident that mothers need community. This village of support can be found in the form of meaningful, judgment-free connection with family, friends and neighbors and extends to birth and postpartum workers, lactation consultants, midwives, therapists, mother-friendly pediatricians, pelvic floor specialists, acupuncturists, chiropractors, pre and postnatal yoga instructors, traditional massage therapists and the list goes on...
At The Mother's Village, we simplify and enhance the lives of new parents because we offer extensive support options from pregnancy through the first year, all under one business and with one phone call. Your new family can rely on our web of comprehensive and professional support.
The Mother's Village is your space to find professional resources as well a community of women who have been through [or are simultaneously going through] the stages of emotional and physical transition that you are experiencing.
As a client of The Mother's Village, you will feel cared for, heard, and most importantly, bonded as a family, as you navigate through the tender moments of early parenthood.
We are here for you!
