A Bit About Me

The Sparrows-130I am Darla Sparrow, owner of Mandala Birth. I was called to be a birth doula after reading incredible, inspiring birth stories, and 8 years later I still leave each birth in awe and humbled. I love seeing a woman fall into a trance and work with pure divine effort to birth her baby. I adore helping women achieve their birth dreams, and heal from previous birth trauma. I believe honoring a woman in pregnancy & birth is good for birth outcomes, and that the spiritual and emotional are an important part of child birth preparation. It is my joy to hold sacred space for women as they labour, to witness their strength and afterwards, hear them say, “I did it!”

You Ate What?

Placenta encapsulation is the process of taking your placenta and processing it safely into a consumable pill form. While you’re resting and cuddling your sweet new baby, you can relax knowing your placenta is being processed in a dedicated work space by a professional. Know you’re being nourished and cared for, that you’re receiving the most beneficial qualities from your placenta, helping you to bond, relax, nurse and recover from birth. Some moms experience:

  • More energy and better moods postpartum
  • A great breastfeeding relationship with their new baby
  • Extra support early on in this new phase of their life
