Meet Your ProDoula

Background/Experience that you think is beneficial to Doula work: Over 10 years of experience in healthcare working as a nurses assistant. I understand the empathy, patience and compassion needed to work in this field.

What led you to become a Doula?: It was my goal to be a registered nurse working in labor and delivery. After receiving my bachelors in healthcare management and shadowing RN's I realized I wanted to be more hands on. I wanted to be able to help in another way. After doing research on the role of a doula I realized that it was an essential role and I wanted to impact families on a more personal level and being a birth worker would allow me to do so.

Very peaceful, great communicator, nurturing and compassionate

What are your favorite pregnancy/parenting resources?: Evidence based birth

What thoughts come to mind when you see a pregnant woman or brand new mom?: I don't have any particular thoughts so affirming them from afar. Offering compliments and kind words
