MISSION

I serve as a guide navigating mothers though the succulence of birth. providing love, physical, emotional, spiritual, and educational support, and comfort during the birth journey. guiding mothers as far as they wish to go during this process.

My goal is help mother's achieve a sense of rhythm in labor that works for them through sound therapy, movement, massage, labor position changes, and continuous presence.

as well as to Give space for the mother and her partner's individualized comforts to shine through.

My aim is to make the experience of birth and the transition into motherhood aligned with the desires of the mother whether earth side or angel baby.

ABOUT ME

I TRULY BELIEVE THAT EVERYONE IS MEANT TO MEET FOR A REASON AND I AM VERY THANKFUL AND VERY HONORED THAT WE HAVE been drawn to each other!

I WANT US TO KNOW EACH OTHER VERY WELL BEFORE WE EVEN HIT THE LABOR ROOM and i strive to make sure that i work with mothers of compatible energy for birth.

i truly and WHOLEHEARTEDLY believe that there is a doula for every mother and i work hard to make sure that we mesh well as a unit before we hit the labor room.

birth requires being very private, extremely intimate, open and vulnerable to one another and i honor this process deeply. i have found that once trust is established we can create a rhythm in labor that is vital for primal birth energy to flow.

with that being said. i want you to know the depths of me, so that we can feel open and comfortable with each other. SO HERE ARE A FEW THINGS ABOUT ME! 

MY NAME IS IMAN NEWSOME AND I WAS BORN AND RAISED IN WASHINGTON DC . I AM very energy sensitive and identify as a INDIGO, empath and animist. i am an avid BIRTH NERD, PLACENTA JUNKIE, LIGHTWORKER, yogi, and MOONCHILD.

I BELIEVE THAT AS A MOTHER YOU SHOULD HAVE MULTIPLE OPTIONS OF CARE IN YOUR BIRTH, YOU SHOULD KNOW AVAILABLE RESOURCES AND AT THE END OF THE DAY YOU SHOULD BE THE ONE TO DECIDE HOW YOU WANT TO BIRTH.

I BELIEVE THAT ALL MOTHERS DESERVE TO BE LOVED, RESPECTED, CARED FOR, AND COMFORTED IN BIRTH. REGARDLESS OF THEIR RELIGION, SEXUAL ORIENTATION, RELATIONSHIP STATUS, RACE, GENDER IDENTIFICATION, OR BIRTH STATUS WHETHER ANGEL OR EARTH SIDE BABY. 

I TAKE THIS WORK THAT I HAVE BEEN CALLED TO VERY SERIOUSLY AND OPEN MYSELF DEEPLY AND FULLY BY BEING COMPLETELY IN THE MOMENT DURING OUR TIME TOGETHER.

I AM SO THANKFUL FOR YOUR ENERGY RETURN OF LOVE, COMPASSION AND FREEDOM IN YOUR JOURNEY OF LABOR AND MAKE IT MY BUSINESS TO BE THEIR FOR YOU IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD! 

I CAN NOT WAIT FOR US TO JOURNEY TOGETHER THROUGH THE beautiful UNPREDICTABILITY OF LABOR and can not wait to share your energy and your love.

Client Reviews

Thank you for being the most amazing and supportive doula as we welcomed our baby. We couldn’t have had our birth wishes come true without you! We hope you continue to practice and that we have your support when it’s time for baby #2.
— Libbee
Thank you so much for all your patience and support during the birth of our son. We really appreciated your gentle and nurturing demeanor. You are an excellent doula and we hope to see you again around the neigborhood.
— Michelle
Iman was an incredible support in my medication - free birth, especially with counter pressure in my lower back. I wouldn’t have been able to have a natural birth without her support!
— Maddox
Iman was a wonderful help through my labor... the combination of her knowledge and emotional and physical help combined with my husband’s support is what got me through my difficult and long 27 hours of back labor with no medications. I would’ve never gotten through it and followed through with my wish for a natural birth without her strong and understanding support! We are fully doula believers now.
— Keelings
Having a doula to help navigate my birth/delivery process was invaluable! Especially since my birth plan changed rapidly. I am so appreciative of Iman’s support during my c-section! It made a complicated and painful process less stressful and difficult. Iman was so kind, supportive, and responsive.
