Massage Momma - Houston, TX

image753

Sasha Sumling, Birth, Postpartum & Bereavement Doula and the owner of MassageMomma. Sasha is also a Lactation Consultant and a Prenatal Massage Therapist. Am I truly the earthy chick; the tattooed massage therapist-doula all about women power or am I just a mom? I have asked myself that question many times before, who am I?
When  I introduce myself I say I’m married and a mom of three, but is that  it? I have three beautiful kids, all different shades of brown, cream,  caramel, and chocolate. I even have the road map to motherhood to prove  it- stretch marks. You would think I wouldn’t need any more marks, but I  do have a nice size tattoo. I even take on the joy of watching babies  being popped out the vagina. And I like it when they call me Massagemomma.
