Leaving it at the altar…

The enemy didn’t want me to have this moment of breakthrough. I  could’ve missed this moment, if I didn’t have a husband that insisted on me going to service this day. [No, I don’t think that you have to be in a building for God to meet you. But, God knew what I needed.] I fought going with every excuse in the book. Years of being overlooked, unthought of by “churches.” Years of feeling “less than” and “not good enough” as a wife AND woman.

December – May… those were some of the hardest months of this journey. Battling depression – anxiety, feeling like I just wanted to give up on “this whole God” thing. I just couldn’t understand how/why I was STILL going through this. I had my eyes fixed on my storm, on the waves, on the water rising around me instead of fixing my eyes on the one who can WALK on water. 

But God knew that the moment would come, where I would have to complete break my pride & say, “I’m that woman.” The woman that desires to be a mom, but it still hasn’t happened yet. God knew that I needed to literally GET UP, WALK, & LEAVE the pain of an infertility diagnosis at the altar. Broken, Tired, Hurting, Just as I was. He knew that I needed to be poured into & loved back to life. He knew that He was going to wash me in his love, fill me with joy and use his daughters to build me back up. He knew that every tear I cried would be a sign of surrendering my plans, my life, my desires to His Will. He knew that every sob would be me giving this to Him. 

Although I still have HARD moments. I STILL cry. I STILL have to remind myself daily of God’s promises to me. I am thankful that God healed me of a broken heart. I am thankful that he gives me peace, even as I am walking through this storm. I am thankful that He loves me beyond my hurt and pain. I am thankful for the tiny breakthroughs that have happened since this moment! I am thankful for the connections and relationships that have been formed since this moment! I am thankful for the joy that I have felt since this moment! I am thankful for the hope that was restored in this moment. God is SO good, SO faithful. Even in the storm. // “You have turned my mourning into dancing for me; You have taken off my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, That my soul may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.” – Psalms 30:11-12

Raven was amazing, she helped me with my cyst and bacteria infection. She knew EXACTLY what I needed to address each issue. She made sure I had everything I needed. Even when I arrived at the store, I called her to make sure I had the correct items... she answered right away and clarified that I had everything. She checked on me every few days to make sure my issues was getting taking care of. I highly recommend a session with Raven for any holistic womb care, health, holistic medicine, etc. thank you Raven so much! Love you

Raven Thomas helped me in my TTC journey by giving me knowledge on what was actually going on with my body and helping me understand my hormones. She educated me on hormone imbalance and the negative affects  that it  has on the body. Raven's  outstanding wisdom lead to me getting pregnant. She walked me through my pregnancy with healthy ways of eating,books and managing my emotions in a healthy way to promote a wonderful stress free pregnancy. During my Postpartum phase she answered all of my questions for breastfeeding, and how to still rest with multiple kids for recovery, any issue I had she made sure she gave me the emotional support as well as a game plan to overcome my issues I was having. I highly recommend her for all of your Doula needs and brestfeeding services. She has such a heart for women and wellness!!

If you’re wondering whether or not you can receive quality care from a doula even if it’s just virtually the answer is yes. Raven provided vital information on what I could expect, request, decline, and more throughout my pregnancy experience. The actual doula I chose to contract here in New York where I live is everything Raven told me I should have in a doula. When had my virtual consultation with Raven, she was polite, informative, reassuring and even answered my million questions. I think a virtual consultation is key for anyone who is unsure about what doulas do and who they are—and if doulas aren’t readily available in your area having the consultation helps with your search. If you are looking for someone to help you choose the right doula service, and you’re not able to meet in person, I would highly recommend having a consultation with Raven. Simply put, she is amazing. - Mrs. Adara Sherron First time mom to a baby girl.

Raye the doula was everything I needed this first time around breastfeeding. I’m a mom of 3, ages 3,2, and now a 9 week old baby boy. I didn’t get the opportunity to have such an empowering, and proactive lactation specialist with my first two. I have inverted nipples but now they both are completely pulled out. The techniques she gave and advice are exactly what I needed. Before, I started using her- in my 1st week postpartum, I got mastitis, I had a fever and more... Raye provided that’s when I was able to get some good advice and support about relieving the clogged milk ducts and gave me help positioning to make breastfeeding easier. Once you get that infection, you feel horrible, but she helped make the experience as comfortable as possible. Don’t miss out of booking her, even if you may not have any problems with breastfeeding like I did. As a postpartum mom, you always need someone in your corner to assist and be there for you. Get a team and on your team have her, Raye the doula. Larisa Cleaves, Mom of 3, Wife, Business Owner
