What does UZIMA mean?

In essence, uzima means "full of life."


The Swahili word, “Uzima” (oo-ZEE-mah) has many English translations- life, wellbeing, wholeness, vitality.
Embarking on the journey that is pregnancy, birth and postpartum is to pursue the creation of a new life and do so in a way that promotes wellbeing, wholeness, and vitality.
My goal as a doula is to encourage birthing people to realize that they deserve their best birth and their best version of uzima,
whatever that may look like for you.


I'd love to hear from you!
