I am very excited to start supporting laboring women as a Doula. I’ve had the privilege of attending a few births and I am always humbled at the end of it. Each birth is powerful and unique and reaffirms to me why I am doing what I do.
There are many reasons I could give to explain why I feel called to this work. I think most of them could be summed up by saying simply that I believe in women. Birth has largely been treated as a medical condition ever since birth moved into hospitals. Birth is not inherently dangerous. Women have this amazing ability to labor and birth their babies. I want to be a doula to support a women in trusting her body and her instincts to bring her baby into this world.
