The Social Doula

Secret Doss

 

"From a very young age, I knew that my mission in life was to work with families who were expecting new life!  At the age of twelve I had the amazing experience of being involved in the birth of my youngest brother and I was hooked!  I  proudly accomplished my dream of becoming a doula in February of 2016, the same year I would deliver a beautiful, healthy, baby boy.  My biggest passion is educating people on the benefits of massage therapy and hiring a doula to attend their birth.  That's why I started "The Social Doula." I want this to be a destination full of education and community.  I love helping my fellow doulas expand their practice and gain exposure to clients in their areas. Together we can help create a safe space where all women can birth without fear and birth the way they desire!"

 

The No-Nonsense Guide to Birth

"The No-Nonsense Guide to Birth" workshop is a series of four classes designed to prepare you for birth from A-Z. Are you overwhelmed with the amount of information or advice out there about pregnancy, birth, & postpartum?Many women don't want to think about birth until its "go time." This can cause a lot of fear and anxiety during the labor process. Some women read everything they can get their hands on to try and prepare for the big day but then get overwhelmed with the amount of information they are trying to process. Much like a wedding planner can help to calm a stress filled bride, a DOULA can help calm the fear and anxiety a new mom might be feeling when preparing for a baby's arrival! "The No-Nonsense Guide to Birth" will explore the whole process in a way that is easy to understand without the information becoming overwhelming. We will talk about decisions that need to be made and all the things most books don't like to talk about. The more informed we are, the less fear we have. This will be the most straightforward, fact based class you take when it comes to pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. The workshop is divided into the following series prenatal labor postpartum lactation
