Tell us about yourself, your family and where you live…
I am a birth and postpartum doula, mama of three boys, and wife. I am also the creator of the online wellness platform, #NotSoPrivateParts and the Co-Creator of Moms In Color. My family and I live here, in Los Angeles, CA.
You launched #notsoprivateparts a little over three years ago now. Tell us more about what inspired you to start this movement..
After having a miscarriage in 2014, I was amazed by the lack of resources available to folks who have experienced the heartbreak of miscarriage. Pregnancy loss can be super isolating, and I simply wanted to create the community that I needed, way back when.
Arguably, you are best known for your work as a doula and an educator in all things birth and motherhood but we hear you also have a passion for music and song-writing?
You really do have an innate eye for style and pairing pieces together in a way that is uniquely your own. How would you say your personal style has developed over the years, through motherhood and all the varying stages of life?
As a breastfeeding Mama, what are your go-to pieces at the moment and what things do you gravitate toward when shopping for clothes?
How do you feel when wearing WARES?
I feel soft. I love the feeling of organic cotton. When I wear WARES, I feel like I can take the guess work out of, “what to wear” and just simply be present, beautiful and connected.
