Today we’d like to introduce you to Amanda Quintero.
Hi Amanda, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
Mama is a space & idea I dreamt; to create a space, I wish existed for me throughout my pregnancies & beyond. Being pregnant every other year for the past seven years, I craved a place that could make me feel held and gave me the time and attention to know that what I was going through was sacred. As a massage therapist of 11 years and holistic esthetician of 5, I knew I could bring that care to other women experiencing this super transformative time. So I created Mama so that people have a place to come where they can feel safe & nurtured knowing that every service I offer & every product that I use or sell is made up of only good things.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
I believe that life comes at you in waves, in all things. So that’s been the same with Mama. There’s been moments where I feel like I’m in over my head. But then, the next day I’ll have a client who reminds me why I am doing what I’m doing & it makes it all worth it. The biggest struggle I’ve had with it all is probably just my mindset. Having to remind myself that I can do this & constantly reminding myself why I started in the first place.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I’m a bodywork therapist & holistic esthetician. With the help of our in•house birth and postpartum Doula, Dani (@mydouladani), we have created services & curated a line of products to help guide your body and mind through pregnancy. At Mama, every service I offer and every product that I use or sell is safe during pregnancy and beyond. I am super proud to provide a space where people can come & they can feel safe and held. At Mama, we really take our time with clients. As much time as they are needing. I like to be with my clients when they come in and really listen to what they are dealing with in their lives so that I can get a better sense of what they are needing within their bodies. It may be unpractical in this field but I would rather spend my day on two clients who really get what they need than rushing through 6 and them leaving feeling unfulfilled.
So maybe we end on discussing what matters most to you and why?
This space wouldn’t exist without my husband & my babies. The importance of healing within ourselves to be the best we can for the people we love is what drives me. Both for my own healing & to the people who come into this space in need of some help with theirs. That’s my main thing. To be one small step in the healing journey of anyone who comes through the doors.
