My journey to becoming a doula
My path to a doula calling and career was sparked by my own personal experiences. While pregnant with my first three children I knew very little about what to expect, and the options I had. I had limited support, knowledge, and resources. This led me to unnecessary interventions and traumatic experiences.
After those experiences, I began looking for more options and started educating myself on how I could have the outcomes I wanted. Learning about my options gave me the confidence I needed as I journeyed through my last pregnancy fearlessly and as a result, I experienced a non-medicated empowered vaginal birth with my fourth child.
Through my personal birthing experiences, I understand the importance of having the support of a doula.
I believe childbirth is an experience in a woman’s life that holds the power to transform her forever and having emotional, physical, and spiritual support throughout this sacred voyage can make a difference. The growth I experienced through my birth experiences has made me a source of healing and compassion for other women.
