What does being a doula mean to you?
To me, being a doula means being of service to birthing people. (It means) making sure all birthing people are (aware) of their rights.
One reason a family should consider having a doula:
Families should consider having a doula to support them when trying to figure out pregnancy and childbirth. Doulas walk families through the tough and confusing stuff, and let them know that everything they may be feeling is valid.
Please share a story of one of your most memorable experiences as a doula.
My most memorable experience as a doula was when I supported a client with lupus. Her strength and her heart was unmatched. What truly got me was the love she and her husband displayed in the birthing space! They had oxytocin flowing through and through. It was beautiful. Watching her taught me a valuable lesson about birth. It’s all about your mindset around it.
