childbirth educatorA childbirth educator, mentors expecting parents on their pregnancy, birth and postpartum preferences providing a customized curriculum on beneficial and important topics.
For years, I questioned what my calling would be. I followed the traditional path, attended college and graduated with my degree; but I wasn’t quite sure what to do with my skills. I always knew I was hardworking and passionate with everything I set my mind to. I asked that the Universe lead me towards my calling, and it became clear after the birth of my daughter.
Becoming a Doula and Childbirth Educator has been excitedly overwhelming and extremely rewarding. With over 10 years of experience in administrative assistance, consultation and a degree in Communications, I know that it is my calling to do maternity work. I absolutely love the work that I do because I change the lives of women, their partners, and families. I truly look forward to our journey together as my goal is to create meaningful connections.

What is BWMs philosophy?
A doula can provide labor support via the four pillars of labor support. In the textbook Best Practices in Midwifery by Barbara A. Anderson, the author describes three pillars of labor support as emotional support, physical support, and advocacy. In the book Optimal Care in Childbirth by Amy Romano and Henci Goer, informational support is also listed as a pillar of support.
