Story Behind the Dreamer
My story started when I was blessed with the seed of life, who began to grow in tummy, she is the inspiration behind Intentions. It was my first pregnancy and I wanted to do it right! I quickly began to realize, Maui, was not the ideal place for mothers looking for a natural, safe and empowering pregnancy and birthing experience. Rather, pregnancy was commonly viewed as a medical state that needed intervention. Women were to abide by healthcare professional advice without question. I did not agree. I felt like if anyone was going to be in charge of my pregnancy and soon to be child, it was going to be me.
Pregnancy is a magickal and natural state of being and women have an innate knowledge that should not be overlooked or trivialized. I was fortunate enough to find a midwife who shared the same view and soon after, she joined our journey. She shared a wealth of knowledge and support for my family and was with us every step of the way. This experience became the root of my passion. After my daughter was born, it seemed as if the midwife's "jurisdiction" was sort of at an end. It was up to me to find the best means of care and products for my precious baby. This became a daunting task.
Through my own experiences and research, I've found it extremely tough to get my hands on products I was 100% comfortable using while pregnant and on my precious babe. Over this time I had become so well versed in reading product labels and alternative methods to medicine, friends, family and strangers alike started to inquire for my advice. My husband joked that I needed to start charging for it! Well, here I am, turning my passion into a business with my own mother at my side.
