Meet Your ProDoula

Background/Experience that you think is beneficial to Doula work: I hold my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Development and my Master’s Degree in Social Work with a minor in Psychology. I have specialized in therapy services in working with antepartum and postpartum mothers and their families.

What led you to become a Doula?: I had a friend who experienced an extremely traumatic birth and she said it was made worse because she felt so forced and unsupported. I began looking into what role could help women in that situation and found doula work.

What are some positive comments made about you by other people?:

“Nicole was very helpful and such a calming presence during my labor.  I would highly recommend her to anyone else looking for a doula.”- Allison (mother)
