When I started writing this post earlier today the first sentence I typed was, “This year really ******* sucked.” Yet as I looked back over the the past 12 months, a better story emerged; a story about doing what feels right, instead what looks right. For me this meant walking away from a few things that no longer served me or Welcome Mama. It meant waiting for the grace to forgive. It meant learning to listen, instead of projecting or hoping that others had the best of intentions. And most importantly, it meant putting one foot in front of the other when I really wanted to roll up into a ball and cry.
So here it is: My 2017 Year in Review
I'm not going to lie: the main reason why I wanted to create this directory was to have a space dedicated to listing every single birth professional in WNY. I'm not even close to having everyone, but we're getting there! When I get a kid free half hour here and there, I get so excited to work on this site, trying my best to bring all of the wonderful holistic resources available in WNY to YOU.

This is Liz Beyer-Partin. I met Liz 2 years ago at one of Improving Birth-Buffalo's unofficial Rallies. We were there protesting in front of a fancy club on Delaware that was hosting the local chapter of ACOG.
I was so excited when I saw her sign, "We are proof! Postterm and no induction necessary". As a mom who struggled with a 42 week induction with my first baby, then went on to have a healthy birth naturally at 42+5 with my second baby, it was so important to me to see that we were both part of a growing network of women who were truly supported and empowered. It's happening!!! Right here in Buffalo!! CHANGE!!
Liz went on to train as a doula and join the Buffalo Doula Collective. A trained birth doula, she's also very interested in helping postpartum moms adjust to motherhood, offering some incredible postpartum packages.
She's listed right here on Welcome Mama, along side all of our other local doulas. Please go give her page a like and check out what she has to offer.
Contact her today for your birth and postpartum doula needs.
