Background/Experience that you think is beneficial to Doula work: I am the oldest of 5 with the largest age gap being 18 years between me and the youngest, which means I have lots of hands on experience to support you both during pregnancy and postpartum.
What led you to become a Doula?: My passion for birth work comes from being a black woman trying to navigate the healthcare system that is often prejudiced and holds internal bias towards my community, as black and native women are 4-5x more likely to die during childbirth. As well as being married to someone with Cerebral Palsy; whose Mother may have benefited from the positive effects from having a birth worker.
What are some positive comments made about you by other people?:
People love to say that Im really silly, and an overall jokester. I have a natural talent of being very much in-tune with the people I meet and interact with daily.
