Why I Became A Doula?

Updated: Apr 29, 2020

I have always had a passion for helping people. While living in New York City I worked for an agency for young adults with mental disabilities helping them navigate their neighborhood. After this program I worked in Brooklyn in two different classrooms working with children who had learning disabilities. It was during this time that I spoke with some of my pregnant co-workers or ones who were already moms and listened to their birth stories.

Every story was different but had the same theme. There wasn't a person there for the MOM to help her advocate for herself. That is when something clicked in my head, I could be that person. I could learn to help empower these women and birthing people during their labor. When my husband and I moved back to New Jersey to live with my family I attended a three day intensive course to become a certifying birth doula. During this course I learned how to support birthing people during their labor. I learned how to support emotionally, physically, and spiritually during labor. I am also trained on giving evidence based birth information and help you make the decision that is right for you and your baby.
