Headed by Afro-Indigenous midwife, Raquel Lemus LM, Sugar Heal Home Birth provides comprehensive maternity care plans designed to account for physical, emotional, energetic, mental and spiritual wellness so that mother, baby, partner and community may embark on a transformational life-giving journey that bridges ancestry, lineage and present life purpose. Raquel is also a lactation educator and certified Peristeam Hydrotherapist specializing in antepartum/postpartum yoni steaming which is used for all of our birth clients. The Sugar Heal midwife works closely with the rest of the Sugar Heal birth team who specialize in using preventative care in order to minimize risk and increase harmony and empowerment throughout the entire birthing process. The birth team offers urgent support in cases of pre-term contractions, spotting, blood pressure irregularities, stalled labor, delayed onset of labor, mastitis, baby malpositioning, pregnancy loss and more. Each Sugar Heal Home Birth is informed by intuitive guidance counselor, Dr. Zhaleh, who channels information about the pregnancy, birth and postpartum recovery period in order to inform the client and birth team of the best practices for mama and baby. Natural birth specialists Daniel Hutchinson L.Ac. (Acupuncture and Nutrition) and Colleen from Seline Vibes (Maternity Acuvibration) make up the rest of the team.

Without the quality care and love from my midwife Raquel and the Sugar Heal team,
my pregnancy, birth and postpartum recovery would not be the positive and harmonizing journey it has been.
My first pregnancy and birth were traumatic and I suffered from postpartum depression due to lack of resources and care. Thank you for blessing me with the opportunity to have an autonomous birthing ceremony which is empowering and revolutionary as a WOC. Having my needs met has not only blessed me but has extended
to my husband and children.
