Background/Experience that you think is beneficial to Doula work: From the time I was a young child, I have had a passion for helping others. I have been babysitting since I was old enough to remember. I also have been CPR/BLS Certified for the last 6 years. I have also completed two Labor Doula trainings, the more knowledge, the better right?!
What led you to become a Doula?: For a very long time, I have been completely intrigued with pregnancy and birth. This whole concept just amazes me. So, when I started college, I really wanted to become a midwife, however I was quit discouraged by the amount of schooling required and was not able to proceed. A while later, I found out about the incredible work of Doulas and I decided this was the perfect career for me! I originally trained with a company called DONA(2019) and got to start being a Doula! Now I have trained and certified with ProDoula and am excited to start the next phase of helping birthing people advocate for themselves and support them during their birthing journey.
What are some positive comments made about you by other people?:
I am told I have caring and empathetic. I am lighthearted, calming and reassuring.
