A Message from Miranda:
Hello! I can’t wait to meet and get to know you! I’m Miranda, a passionate, radiant, feminine, Puerto Rican mother, Full-Spectrum Doula, Certified Lactation Counselor, Bellibind Specialist, & Placenta Specialist. I am the founder of The Mothership & Co-founder of The Harlem Doula Collective. I was born, raised and am currently residing in New York City. (But you can take my class from anywhere in the world!) I received my training at Ancient Song Doula Services and my mentorship with The Cannabis Doula. It is my passion to aim to change the narrative, emphasize & highlight the sacredness of parenthood, & build community, inclusive of all types of families. I love empowering families throughout their journey to parenthood, navigating the ins and outs of systems and processes in the medical industrial complex, making sure families are heard and their needs are met. I teach a monthly class on breastfeeding, provide private childbirth education classes, and host MomWow - a monthly pregnancy / mom support group.
