Week Two feat. Alexandra Pumayruna

Alexandra's bio reads:

Daughter of Pachamama, sister to All, intuitive primal Mother.

Since freebirthing my son deep in the forest, I’ve become passionate about supporting & empowering women in the journey of transitioning from maiden to mother.

I believe that a mother’s primal intuition is one of the most powerful forces on the planet, and I love supporting women in reconnecting with this ancient & innate feminine wisdom.

Other passions of mine include rewilding, sacred sisterhood, holistic health, spirituality, primitive earth skills, off-grid living, permaculture / regenerative organic gardening, plant medicines, writing, songweaving, seedkeeping, and of course conscious mothering ❤️

I currently live in the forest of Nevada City, CA with my partner, our son, two wolfdogs and cat, where I hold women’s circles and offer loving presence & supportive services as a birth+postpartum doula, childbirth educator, breastfeeding counselor and wombyn’s empowerment mentor.
