Background/Experience that you think is beneficial to Doula work: My background is in health promotion research and evaluation and I use those academic skills daily. As I transitioned through my own experiences with pregnancy, birth and parenting I felt called to work with women and families. I’m really happy to be able to merge my background and interests in my doula practice.
What led you to become a Doula?: I was deeply touched by my experience with my doula and I said to her, “You have the BEST job in the world!”. It dawned on me: she had what I longed for. I chatted with a few loved ones and every one of them responded with some variation of “That is SO YOU! You are perfect for that”. I made a decision to align myself with my passion, booked a training and never looked back
What are some positive comments made about you by other people?:
I’m told my best assets as a doula are my truly non-judgmental approach and my calm disposition. I make people feel comfortable and confident.
