I would love to have my services accessible to all of our community. 💕 🌱
🌒What makes your business unique?
🌕Living Wild is a bit unique because the core inspiration behind my work is the power of nature. My passion for birthwork and earthwork are married together by their synonymous power of nature—-my doula practices are based on women becoming empowered by understanding that birth is a beautiful force of nature, therefore WOMAN is a beautiful force of nature. I dive a bit further into my love for nature by also incorporating my many years of farming and studying cultivated & wild medicinal plants to then create specially hand crafted small batch plant based self care products that can help new moms with the many new adjustments, and many other products for basic self care. Self care is super important ritual for all mamas, I cannot emphasize that enough. Even when it seems like there isn’t enough time, you must make the time. You are so important. You are everything.
Thank you Melissa Mapes Miller for sharing with us and giving us a peek into the incredible work you do for the community!🌓
