Jazzy Lamboy, Birth & Postpartum Doula
Located in Alamogordo, New Mexico
Proud to offer discounts for military, teachers, and single parents!
Greetings from your friendly neighborhood doula! I'm Jazzy; I am the wife to an amazing man, mama to two beautiful boys, fur mom to a fourteen-year-old lab, and many more things. Coming from a large family, I have always had a passion for families and children. I have served families before as a nanny and preschool teacher for several years. It wasn't until the birth of my own children that I realized the need for advocacy and education within the birth realm, especially for BIPOC communities. While I didn't have traumatic birthing experiences with my sons, I do wish I would have known then what I know now. Once I learned about the maternal morbidity and mortality rate for women of color in the U.S., that was enough to encourage me to take a doula training and do my part to show families the power they already hold to have the birthing experience they deserve!
I received my birth doula training through the National Black Doula Association and completed a mentorship program through them as well. I am continuing my doula education with a postpartum doula training, a pregnancy and postpartum herbal course, and a professional membership with Evidenced Based Birth. I am excited to support your family!
What is a birth doula?
A birth doula is a non-medical professional that provides educational/informational, physical, emotional, and spiritual support to families through pregnancy, labor, birth, and in the immediate postpartum. Doulas also arm expecting families with the knowledge they need to make informed decisions around their birthing experience, and to advocate for themselves and what is best for them. Doulas are a part of the birthing team and are not a replacement for your partner, midwife or OB, or any other supportive member.
Studies show that by having continuous non-medical support during labor and birth, people are more likely to have fewer instances of medical interventions, such as needing to be medically induced, receiving pain medication, or having a cesarean section. People who had continuous support during birth also report having more overall positive feelings around their birth experience.
There is a black maternal mortality crisis, where black women are dying at rates three to four times higher than our white counterparts. Having black doulas, black birth educators, and other black birth professionals can help make a difference. Representation matters, knowledge is power, and advocacy matters!
Philosophy and Mission Statement
Since the beginning of time, women have been birthing babies and supporting one another through that journey into motherhood. I am here to offer all women, especially women of color, emotional and physical support, knowledge, and positive energy. Women deserve to have the empowering, organic birthing experience they desire. My goal is to be fluid like water flowing through a river, so that I may meet your needs on every step of your birthing journey.
I strive to help create an empowering birthing experience for families of color by providing fluid physical and emotional support.
