"During pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum, women experience spiritual, mental, emotional and physical changes.
It gives me great pleasure to educate, encourage, empower and provide the missing piece of the puzzle to ensure both mother, baby and family are healthy while making delivery a smooth transition." ~ Shaman Tomecas, Shaman/Elder Midwife
Childbirth is an experience in a woman's life that holds the power to transform her forever. Passing through these powerful gates - in her own way - remembering all the generations of women who walk with her... She is never alone." - Suzanne Arms
