About Me:

Hey loves! My name is Jasha Buckery and I’m The Saye Birth Doula. I welcome you all to my space. I’m very excited to support all birthing persons in their journey through pregnancy.

 In my training with MamaGlow Doula Immersion program I quickly identified with the healing and uplifting capacity of community in birth-work. As an advocate, a friend, and your anchor in your birth experience I try to incorporate practices that helps you in your own healing and shadow work.  

Birth-work has always been my calling as my background has centered advocating for others and organizing care for the most vulnerable individuals. I specialized in case management, mental health as well as grief support. Throughout my work I have felt connected to others hearts and their genuine spirits to be alive. I set out to become a doula after I witness my sisters traumatic birth experiences and wanted to define the birth space in a new way for others. As a black woman, my activism does not dance around the strong need to make sure the abilities of women & birthing people bodies are not rejected — in an urgency to elect medical forms of intervention during their pregnancies. 

Being a doula for me is in all regards honoring those experiences of all birthing people/ mamas. I’m so excited to support birthing people in their precious moments of bringing joy into this world and uplifting them for the powerful individual they are.

Jasha was 100% professional and personable for the entirety of her service! She took on the task of becoming my doula later in my pregnancy, (my OB modified their COVID restrictions) but I felt as though she was there with me from the beginning. She provided me with so much information to help prepare me for having a natural birth. The services she provide are so informative and her presentation is phenomenal! We chose the intro to healthy foods, in which she bought over cute food boards filled with yummy, nutritional snacks. During labor, she was very involved with the conversations with the doctors and she was not shy to ask questions about the information they were relaying. When it got real after being induced, she helped me stay grounded even when I wanted so bad to give up and take the epidural. The emotional and physical support she provided to both me and my daughter’s father throughout pregnancy, labor and the postpartum period was unparalleled!!  ~ K.H

I am writing to express my heartfelt gratitude for being there for me throughout my difficult pregnancy journey. Your unwavering support and care have made a tremendous difference in my life, and I cannot thank you enough. From the moment I met you, I knew I had found someone special. Your gentle, compassionate nature immediately put me at ease, and I felt like I could trust you completely. As my doula, you have been there every step of the way, providing emotional and practical support when I needed it most. Your knowledge and expertise have been invaluable in helping me navigate the challenges of pregnancy. You have provided me with information about everything from nutrition to relaxation techniques, and your advice and encouragement have given me the confidence to face each day with a positive outlook. But more than anything, it has been your empathy and understanding that have made the biggest impact. You have listened to me when I needed to vent my frustrations or fears, and you have always been there with a kind word or a reassuring hug. Thanks to you, I have been able to make it through this difficult time, and I know that I will be a better mother because of the care you have provided. You are truly an exceptional doula, and I feel incredibly lucky to have had you by my side.Thank you again for everything you have done for me and my family. Your kindness and generosity will never be forgotten. ~C.N

Thank you for all of your support both leading up to and during my labor. You were a dream to work with, and did an excellent job preparing me for the birth of Aarlo. My experience with you was a 10/10 & I will highly recommend you going forward. Whenever it’s time for baby #2 (looooong down the line lol) I’ll be calling you first! Thank you, thank you, thank you! ~S.C.J

My lovely doula, everything happened because you agreed to be my doula, showing me all the best things for the baby and I. My family would like to thank you for all the support. You are more than a doula you are our sister. ~L.E

“Jasha has a very peaceful spirit and good energy. She guided me in a postpartum mediation and really helped me connect to my baby. Especially after having a stressful experience giving birth during covid, it was a relief to be supported by Jasha and receive reassurance that I could focus on my healing as I cared for my baby”.
~ S.C

Having a doula for the mental prep ahead of a natural birth was beneficial. The communication with Jasha was good. I was surprised that she answered my phone call at 3am when I went into labor. I was glad at the advice to labor at home as long as possible. Learning the stages of of labor and when to go to the hospital during our visits were helpful. She did a really good job helping me to know my birth rights. Also all of the breathing techniques helped during labor. I was satisfied with my doula experience and the red raspberry leaf tea was really good (that’s a part she got right!). ~A.W

“Thank you so much for supporting us so wonderfully throughout this most special time in our life. You are amazing! Thank you for all your help with the birth of our new baby girl. You are a wonder woman!” ~L.V & RH

Jasha, where would I have been with the pregnancy and birth of Karson without you? Thank you for being the support I knew I needed and deserved. The family appreciates you and looks forward to having you join us for the next birth ~A.F
