Quality Doula Services & Childbirth Education in
Fatima's Birth Oasis
Welcome! My name is Fatima Abdallah and I am a doula & childbirth educator serving Northern Virginia, DC and Maryland. If you are looking for a guide on your journey to parenthood, this is the place for you.
The experience of birth & the postpartum period are much bigger than a single day’s event; they are key moments of transformation in your life and will stay with you for a long time. On this journey you should feel respected, empowered, supported, and nurtured. Having our services alongside you during this special time will help better prepare you for the journey of birth and the gentle moments of new parenthood.
Birth is a key moment in our lives.
"As a first time mom I was very nervous as to what to expect, but Fatima helped me feel safe, supported and gave me all the facts without any prejudice or judgement. When I had doubts of my ability to continue with a natural birth she, along with my husband, gave me the confidence & support I needed to push on and successfully have a natural water birth! Looking back, I could not have imagined going through my labor and delivery without her support and expertise! If I have another, I would love to have her as my doula again!"
My husband and I interviewed a few doulas in the DC area before meeting Fatima... We knew that she would be the perfect fit for us. We were convinced that she would make sure that my husband would be able to take part in the birth, which was a genuine concern for us ... I highly recommend Fatima and know that at our future births she will be by our side!
”I just had my 4th and Fatima was my doula. This was the best thing I could’ve done for myself pre-delivery, during and after. Fatima cared for me like no other. I wish I had her for all of my kids. She covered my emotional and physical care ... It was the best investment I could make for myself and my baby."
"Fatima provided an extremely comfortable environment for me that transported me from being in the cold hospital to a place of peace. By encouraging me using a gentle, optimistic, and soothing voice whenever I doubted myself, reminding me kindly to unclench my jaws and relax, and using soft touch on pressure points - specifically on my forehead, I remember calming down almost immediately. There were times I really felt like I could not continue, but both my husband and I looked to her for support and she reminded us and kept our spirits high."
Fatima helped me have my absolute dream birth. She kept us settled and involved my husband in everything. ... Her consults before birth were super helpful and she was easy to reach at all times... Her help made all the difference and is invaluable. Highly recommend.”
“I had a VBAC and Fatima was my doula. She was wonderful, informative, supportive and I’m grateful she was by my side throughout it all. From consultation to laboring at home and pushing for 5 hours she was calm, patient, knowledgeable and motivating. Highly recommend.”
