Background/Experience that you think is beneficial to Doula work: I feel when working with (me) your birth professional it will be incredibly beneficial for not just the parents but the community at larger and hey!!! I learn and grow more with every client. I can play a crucial role in the supporting clients through the childbirth (pre post and beyond) process. I focus on: 1. Supporting Families as well as working with medical professionals: This can be an emotional, physical and joyful time to say the less, that can have an overwhelming amount of changes and new information before, during, and after childbirth. I love helping clients navigate the challenges and uncertainties of pregnancy, childbirth and beyond. 2. Improved Birth Experiences is my key goal: I want to ensure that the birth is a welcoming positive and empowering celebrating for parents. And experience that will enhance their life. You need a respectful, safe, motivating environment that can lead to an enriching satisfying birthing outcome. 3. Reducing Medical Interventions that will help you identify and understand what you feel YOU need and want for this amazing time. 4.Healthier Outcomes for mums pops and babies. 5. Emotional Well-being that reduce depression, overwhelming stress and yes this anxiety for new parents. 6. Community Building that can connect with other parents and engaging resources and information about parenting and childcare. Lets get it! 7. Empowerment( because you don't know what you don't know) which will provide evidenced based education, advocacy and resources that can enrich you experience.
What led you to become a Doula?: Honestly... I had a friend that was not feeling heard regarding her birth post and physical aftercare.She was dealing with a lot of postpartum depression and tried to hurt herself and the baby. I wanted to be a sound board for women in whatever way needed. The Caring Action EAR!!! I also saw a need in fitness aftercare for mums/families (such as personal training, breathe-work/yoga and parenting support groups) who wanted help getting back in those jeans. I also created an agency that would assist parents with ongoing needs such as housekeeping, family assistant, resources etc) I am all in .
