Where did you find your passion to become a childbirth instructor? After having my first son I became fascinated with birth. I couldn’t wait to have more children so I could experience labor again! As my friends and family had children they came to me with their fears, anxieties, and questions surrounding birth. It was then that I knew I wanted to help others become educated about childbirth.
There are many women that go into labor not knowing what to expect. These women are not aware that they have options in their healthcare and become disheartened when labor doesn’t go as planned. A positive birth experience isn’t always because it went the way you wanted it to but rather because you had choices and were in control. I firmly believe knowledge is power.
What inspired you to become a doula? I was discussing with a friend about how I was applying to the RN program at my school in hopes to work in labor and delivery. Little did I know she was planning to go to a training workshop to become a certified doula. She told me all about the program and how a doula is there to support the mother throughout her labor and delivery. I remember excitedly telling her “That’s what I want to do!” We talked for hours that night and I was determined to attend the workshop as well.
What do you want most for your doula clients? As a doula it is my goal to provide my clients with the best emotional and physical support I can. I want my clients to feel comfortable and empowered throughout their childbirth journey.
