I’m a mom of four, book author, doTERRA independent product consultant, lover of mountains and trees, and a Mormon. I have a school psychologist husband I call “Ax” in the blogosphere, two daughters born in hospitals, a son and daughter born at home, and a sweet little shih tzu we call Boston. I grew up in a variety of places (Arizona, Utah, and Massachusetts), traveling often between divorced parents. I graduated in April 2003 from Brigham Young University where I majored in English.
In December of 2007, I turned to Blogger as an outlet for my passionate drive to share what I learned and loved about birth, taking on the psuedonym, “Buscando la luz.” (You can read more about why I chose that particular name here.) I became trained as a birth doula through DONA in 2009 and completed a Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) course with Karen Strange in 2011. I have dreams (see here and here) of attending births at some point in my future. In the meantime, I will learn everything I can about birth, and write, write, write!
So you can call me Buscando la luz, or “Busca,” for short. Or you can call me by the Hawaiian name my mom gave me over thirty years ago: Lani. Coincidentally, this “light-seeker” now resides in the Valley of the Sun–AZ. If you have a question or just want to connect, please email me at email@example.com. You can also post questions, see links to more articles and research, and interact with me and a large group of birth-loving women on my Birth Faith Facebook page. I’m so glad you found your way here!
Thanks for reading!
