Maíra Dias Botelho de Magalhães is a mother of four wonderful creatures whose very existence and births have totally changed her life and who continue to take her into a place of endless learning. She is a Yogini with deep knowledge of her own body with a number of years of experience in both dancing and teaching different styles of yoga. As a meditator her life has been transformed (and continues to be) through this continuous practice. She is a Birth Doula with various trainings and experience in different birth settings, with a deep commitment and great respect for the mothers and babies who are under her care. As an Independent Holistic Childbirth Educator and Mentor, she believes women have an innate power within and all they have to do is awaken this ancient feminine so that they trust their bodies fully to do the transformational emotional and physiological work of labor and birth. She is a Speaker and a Support Groups Facilitator who has developed a quality of listening and who can share with others from her heart encouraging all around her to do so as well. She has been volunteering with Ibu for the past two years both in the Well-Baby Clinic and Ibu Support Groups. She is also an admin for GBG and collaborates with talks and events with Malaysia's largest gentle birth community.
