Before I took the leap of faith of becoming a Doula, I knew that part of my purpose was to be of service. I didn't know exactly how but I knew that I felt most alive when I was helping others. I was working in corporate america and felt miserable. I was always asking God for a sign, a change in direction. I became interested (more like obsessed lol) in birth work when my sister announced she was pregnant again and so I became a Doula in 2014 to help her (pictured here!).
During that time, I moved to Brooklyn, NY, still working in corporate but slowly planning my escape. Miraculously, a birthing center opened up 6 blocks away from my apartment! I went in, spoke with the nurse who loved me right away and I was offered a part-time job as a medical assistant/phlebotomist.
I've since done over 4 Doula trainings (Ancient Song Doula Services, DONA, Aurora Doula Training, Midwifery Assistant program at The Farm etc), I worked at a OB/GYN, became a homebirth midwife assistant and have attended over 100 births. I've learned so much from attending hospital, home and birthing center births. Every birth was different, beautiful and full of new information that I was able to use for the next birth. I've attended friend's births, family members and have coached/consulted other Doulas that have become dear friends of mine (This picture was taken at my friend Rita's home birth).
The idea to create this course came after always being asked for resources and education by pregnant women and just women in general on a daily basis! I would literally print out packages for everyone every time they would ask questions about grounding or nutrition or breathing techniques. It eventually dawned on me that it would be best to record videos and create an online course that was easy to access and easy to understand. I took my time to explain everything thoroughly and gather as many resources, articles and books as I could to give to everyone I met. It took me about a year to compile everything and make sense of all of my notes from 10 years of Doula work and I'm so glad I did! This course/guide has been so beneficial to so many women from all over the world!
The course covers all the essential skills and knowledge you need to become a confident and compassionate doula. You'll learn about the role of the doula, breathing techniques, how to provide physical, emotional, and informational support to families during pregnancy and birth. *See the table of contents below* ***Scroll to the bottom of the page to see what others are saying about the course!***
