When people ask me why I'm a doula in passing my answer is simple "because I love it!". It's a simple yet true statement. I love helping families plan, educate, and accomplish their birth goals. As a doula I get to support and witness such a profound experience in a couples lives. My role as a doula allows families to experience birth their way. Birth can be unpredictable, and it's also in these moments that I realize how important my job is as a doula. It makes my heart happy to hear a family share how great their birth experience was. So it is that simple; being a doula makes my heart happy!
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 postpartum. I believe in a community that works together to achieve a common goal. When I am not supporting families (my own) and clients you can find me networking with other wonderful people in the community.
