My name is Sinéad Oskay, and I am the founder of Blooming Roots.

I offer a variety of services, including birth doula services and professional belly casting to those in Portland, Oregon and surrounding areas, as well as herbal medicinal remedies for the whole family, especially those in their childbearing years.

After exploring more about my practice, I hope you will consider connecting further to see if what I have to offer is right for you and your family.

I was born & raised in the Pacific Northwest, surrounded by a fantastic community of wise women; midwives, herbalists, artists, and a wonderful mother who has worked with new mothers and babies at Providence hospital for the last 30 years. For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by all things pregnancy and birth, and feel very lucky to have had a mother to turn to with all my curiosities.

When I found myself pregnant as a teen, and made the huge decision to carry and parent my child, this fascination took on a whole new meaning. I dove deep into all information I could find about how to have a healthy pregnancy, birth, and beyond. Despite discouragement from media and my peers, I was able to achieve my birthing goals with the help of a well informed birth team and doula.

I knew very quickly that I wished to pursue a career in the birthing community, and to help other mothers feel supported and empowered in their birthing experience. This lead me to training to be a birth doula at Birthingway College of Midwifery in 2017.  I believe all mothers have the right to be well informed of their options, and to be supported in whichever options they believe are best for them. Whether you’re considering a hospital birth with an epidural, or an unmedicated home birth, or anything in between, I am here to provide biodynamic care, and to support you and your birth team in taking all possible steps towards reaching your goals.

I am supportive of all family types. LGBTQ folks, surrogates, and single mothers are all deserving of loving, unbiased support. I strive to deliver inclusive care for all. Trauma informed care and working with other teen mothers are the passions which drive my practice. I offer discounted, and when possible, free rates to teen mothers and survivors of abuse of any kind.

 

I currently live in SE Portland with my partner and my very lively and artistic daughter Mayla! When not attending births, I find deep joy in gardening, creating art, and working with plants, crafting up herbal medicine to share with friends and family, and you!
