For Shanee Finley, being a doula means creating a sacred space for birthing families to honor their birth as a Rite of Passage, for all birth outcomes. Doulas offer support, education, advocacy, and resources. Together, these build bridges across generations and communities with an open heart, mind, and hands.
Doulas empower, advocate, and educate parents to make their best-informed decisions. When informed decision making occurs, birthing families are more likely to feel seen, heard, empowered, and satisfied about their experience.
