Through years of infertility, adopting my two precious babies, and supporting women in crisis pregnancy, I became even more aware of how important compassion care can be. Then I heard about doulas and knew I found a passion.
In 2010, I attended a DONA, Int. doula training. Since that time, I have attended births in and out of hospitals in the United States and Uganda supporting women during labor and birth, and families during postpartum transition.
While hospitals are different in Uganda, the support laboring mothers need is the same. The assurance their partners need is the same. My experience includes supporting:
- first time mothers
- mothers of many
- medicated births,
- high risk pregnancies
- VBAC mothers.
- hospital, birth center, and home births
Services I provide:
Getting to know the families I support is an incredible privilege. It is a privilege to help them formulate their birth plans, to provide a variety of childbirth education classes, a listening ear to pregnancy concerns, and support during labor, birth, and postpartum periods for mother and father. The more families I am privileged to serve the more in awe I become of their unique the journey into parenthood.
