In January I trained with Tara Powe and the Doulas of North America (DONA) to become a Birth Doula. A Birth Doula is also known as a Labor Coach or Birth Partner; the Doula is an experienced, non-medical, professional that works to enhance the childbirth experience for the mother, her partner, and her family through compassion and support.
Being a Reflexology Doula means I will bring my skills as a Reflexologist into the world of prenatal, labor, birth and postpartum.
To date I have attended three births towards certification with DONA. It is a wonderful experience to work with a client throughout her pregnancy and to witness the miracle of birth. Three beautiful baby girls so far with two more babies due in August!
