When people ask me why I'm a doula, my answer, "because I love it!". It's a simple yet honest response. I love supporting families by planning, educating, and empowering them to accomplish their birth goals. As a doula I support and hold space for families during such a profound experience. My role as a doula allows families to experience birth with confidence and the reassurance they will have continuous support throughout the entire process. My role as a postpartum doula is one I feel extremely passionate about. Everyone should have support after their baby is born. This is a time when families need support the most. Having support can make all the difference in those first few months after your baby is born.
I am a mother, sister, daughter, friend, doula. It is all of these roles that led me to becoming a birth and postpartum doula. After having my own kids you could find me supporting other friends and family with their own families. One day someone said to me "Why don't you just be a doula?". It wasn't long before I received my doula certification package from DONA (Doulas of North America). I spend my time supporting families through birth and the postpartumperiod. I believe in a community that works together to achieve common goals. When I am not supporting families (my own) and clients you can find me networking, or teaching with other wonderful people in the community.
