Sorry that I have been so distant from my tumble world!!!! School and wedding planning has taken over!!!!!
I first became interested in being a doula after witnessing the birth of my nephew. I wanted to witness the miracle of a woman giving birth more than just that one time. It suddenly became a discovered passion of mine. I was so inspired that I am taking a leap and will be going to midwifery school.The only way to describe what a Doula can do for you during your birth is limitless. Just at the moments where you want to give up or you think the pain cant get any worse, right by your side is your Doula. With or without great spousal support it is always helpful to have an extra person giving the laboring women love and support that she much needs and deservesAsk me anything
I have the butterflies all over again, every single day <3 I am so in love
tiredstarlings asked: How long did the entire process of learning and being certified take? Where do you practice? How many births have you attended? Were you trained in anything like herbs, yoga, massage therapy, aromatherapy, etc? I am very interested in becoming a doula once I've graduated from the two-year college I go to.
HI! I am so sorry it has taken so long to get back to you. I have been super busy! My training was a weekend intensive… 3 12 hour days. I practice in South Jersey. I have only attended three births as of now. I had to stop for the school year because it is to much to manage with school work and being on call. I was trained through CAPPA. They are amazing. Check out their website cappa.net it will give you all the guidelines you need to become a labor doula. I have not been “certified” in herbs, yoga etc. But I do practice all. I am in the process of finishing my certification for a pre natal personal trainer. I am well educated in herbs as well. I wish you the best of luck ! it is a great field to step into :) It is an absolulty great idea to do it after school. I am still in school working on my BA in Psychology and it is very challanging to do all of it. My long term goal was to be a midwife. I have changed my path to becoming a high school guidance counselor that way I may still be a doula in the summer! ask me anything!! good luck !
Sorry to all of my followers I have not been posting! My life is insane and I will be to you all shortly! I hope everyone is well :)
