Lindsay T. in Portland, OR

Hózhó Doula Care

    Practice overview

    My journey as a birth worker all started when I became pregnant with my son Sage. My husband and I were so thrilled at the thought of becoming parents. I decided fairly quickly that I wanted to have a homebirth. It was such a spiritual experience. I didn’t know the strength and endurance I had in me to birth my son.

    Just knowing what power every single person possesses in bringing their baby's earthside was so profound and magical to me. I soon right after became obsessed with everything that had to do with womb wellness, fertility, pregnancy, birth, and herbal support. I knew right away that I wanted to utilize my compassion and energies on supporting parents in every way I could, especially in the postpartum period. I joined a labor doula workshop at Birthingway College of Midwifery in the summer of 2019 and the Doulas of Color Business Workshop beginning of 2020 to learn more. Shortly after joining, I decided to start my own practice and that is when Hózhó Doula Care was born.

    I was born and raised in Tulsa, Ok, and have lived in Portland for the past 9 years with my husband, my son Sage, and 2 cats, Bev and Carol. I am a Diné adszáán (Navajo woman) who is strongly passionate about herbal support, anything wellness, reproductive health, and justice. I come from a strong lineage of Diné who have passed down to me what it is to be an Indigenous person in this modern world we live in now and how balance is key to life.

    Care philosophy

    My approach is a fusion of Holistic, Spiritual, and with Evidence-Based Information
    Birth is 100% spiritual and physiological. You are bringing another life through from a spiritual portal, you and your baby work together to do this. That alone is such a transcendent interconnected journey. Not one birth is the same, each is different and unique, your story is yours and yours alone.

      Having Lindsay as my doula was the best part of pregnancy, labor, and postpartum. During pregnancy, Lindsay created herbal teas, bone broths, soaking salts and more specially mixed for me. When I got sick, she even made pregnancy-safe teas to help me heal. One of my favorite things about working with Lindsay, was meeting for walks to check in on my emotional and physical wellness during pregnancy. In labor, she helped make sure my space was as comfortable as possible and helped me with comfort measures. After my son was born, she helped me process my birth experience and held my baby for me while I took a shower. I’m so grateful that I had such an incredible doula to guide me through pregnancy.

      I couldn’t imagine going through my first birthing experience without Lindsay. From the first time we met I felt calm and at ease in her presence. She offered so much support, encouragement and wisdom to help guide us through prenatal, labor and postpartum. Her amazing tea blends, herbal concoctions, and healing recipes were nothing short of magical and wonderful to enjoy. During early labor, she stayed with me through the night allowing my partner to rest and save energy for the long birth. She offered and included so many meaningful touches and supportive elements that made the birth even more memorable and amazing. She now feels like family to us and our baby. Lindsay is truly an invaluable ally for anybody getting ready to experience giving birth.
