Background/Experience that you think is beneficial to Doula work: I have been working as a doula since 2015 and have attended over 140 hours of in-person doula training. I pride myself on providing non-judgmental and unbiased support to not only my clients but also the health-care providers in my community. I believe in continuous education and working hard on personal and professional development. I also am helping to elevate the role of doulas by making a contribution to the industry through my doula podcast and by training new and aspiring doulas or birth workers all over the country.
What led you to become a Doula?: After getting my Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration in 2009, I promised myself I would have a career I loved and was passionate about. I learned about doulas when my sister opted to have a home birth with a midwife and a doula. Through my research on what a doula were, I felt very drawn to birth work and since I have felt like I have finally found my calling.
