THE BIRTH OF A DOULA
Olivia Kelly, owner of Azara Birthing Services LLC, established this business with the intention of helping empower women to take back their voice and recognize the pure power that resides within them. Going through college and graduating as an MA in California is what first sparked her interest to pursue entering the reproductive field. It wasn’t until 2016, with the passing of her first son Ezra, that she really felt destined to go full stride and become an advocate for a woman’s right to birth freely and to educate women on this journey to motherhood.
Olivia resides in Grovetown with her husband and two children. She is currently training through DONA International and stillbirthday for her birth and bereavement certification. She plans to continue her education through various institutions with high expectations of completing postpartum, bereavement, herbalism and yoni steaming certification within the upcoming years. This will enable her to further expand her business and serve women and their partners throughout the CSRA.
So for those who are curious, why the name Azara (uh za rah) Birthing Services, LLC?
As previously mentioned, the passing of her first son Ezra was the driving force behind her pursuit of this profession, and by incorporating his name she pays homage to his memory. Ezra means “helper” with its feminine form Azara meaning “enclosure” which is complementary to the idea that a doula is there to hold space for the mother and child enclosed in her womb. The symbolism behind the name will carry his legacy forward with every woman Olivia serves.
Regardless of the circumstances, Olivia’s hope is that all women can take something special from her sincerity and deeply believes that every woman deserves a doula for this transcendent stage in their life. With that being said, please feel free to contact her via email, facebook or telephone to arrange a free consultation.
In loving memory of Ezra Dean, may your soul carry forth liberation to the strength embedded deep in each and every mama out there and portray the pure devotion that runs strong through mama and child, we are one!
