Meet Your ProDoula

Background/Experience that you think is beneficial to Doula work: Intergenerational wisdom

What led you to become a Doula?: Postpartum support is basically void in my area. After studying birth doula work, which didn’t end up being for me, I found postpartum work and the need wasn’t very necessary. I left working as a nanny/health care aide and began my postpartum business.

I have been called an angel and sleep fairy pretty regularly.

What are your favorite pregnancy/parenting resources?: Evidence-based birth Laura Markham Bobbi Ghaheri Jack Newman

What is the best gift you can give a new mom (as a Doula)?: My devoted time and energy to their family.
