La Matriz Birth inspires families to regain their innate wisdom through nurturing midwifery care.

Why did you become a midwife?

“My work in midwifery is more than birthing babies and more about seeing the birth of powerful and rooted women.
Women growing into themselves, finding their voice and trusting their inner knowing.
I do this by providing them a safe place to ask questions and explored their emotional stirrings during our prenatal visits, birth and postpartum visits. I do this by not knowing for them, rather knowing and trusting that each one of my client has the capacity of self discovery.

“Tema was my teacher, then my midwife turned doula, then my postpartum sealer, and an inspiration.

She remains a calm, informed, and experienced energy that helped empower me in all aspects of birthing. Tema brings out the best in you which is what we hope most for in birthing support. Only one can give birth, but the tribe will support you in the transformation to your best and strongest self – the one your baby needs more than anything else.”
