“I didn’t feel supported by my partner, mother or father during my children’s births not because they were being mean or hurtful but simply because they didn’t know how to be fully supportive partners in my childbirth experiences. My current work as a birth worker would have provided a solution to this problem.”
– Deundra Hundon, Doula

I’m currently supporting mama’s and papa’s as a birth doula and completed my training with Cornerstone Doula Training. In addition to my training, I’m a mother and grandmother; two experiences that have provided me with personal experience with childbirth and infant and toddler care. My passion and interest for doing birth work and becoming a doula began when I was just a student in high school preparing for college. Since then, I’ve worked in childcare and education as a teacher, program director, family support coordinator and college advisor. My experience working with children and their families for over 25 years has prepared me for understanding families’ special needs and bringing calm and focus to the entire family in some of the most challenging times.

My approach to all people is to provide love, compassion and support. There isn’t a class that we have in our school system that teaches us how to have a wonderful and supportive birth and bring into the world wonderful, beautiful healthy babies. I believe that my role is to be that teacher and provide the course of learning and be present for the birth.

The births of my two children (although they are wonderful children) were anything but wonderful. I felt scared, unsure, unclear about the vocabulary being used to describe my labor and delivery. I’m committed to making sure that every mama and papa that I work with as a doula feels safe, and that mama feels confident about the strength of her body and becomes an expert on her labor and birth options.

I promise that I will:

  • Stay with you throughout your emotional journey throughout your labor
  • Stay connected with you and your partner to create and maintain a safe, private and calm inner and outer environment
  • Stay committed to you informing and empowering you to make choices that feel right for you, your baby and partner
