Full spectrum doula @ Your Journey with J
Whether a first birth or last, I truly believe that birth is a journey and something that should be supported along the way with a doula. My goal is to shift the way we think about birth and replace fear with education and empowerment – while centering BIPOC, single, and LGBTQIA+ people. It is my training from Re+Birth Equity, Birthing Advocacy, and DONA International, as well as years of working with families in various capacities and personal lived experience that allows me to provide comprehensive and culturally inclusive support. Birthwork is my social justice work. I provide in person and virtual doula offerings that include prenatal education, planning, birth & postpartum support, and more. My model of support differs from many doulas, in that I join you on the journey to and through birth and foster a longer term relationship – typically 4-6 months.
In addition to my independent doula work, I am a programming and community engagement volunteer with Mama Sana Vibrant Woman, Prenatal PIP squeaks facilitator with Partners in Parenting, and member of Suenos Sin Fronteras Birth Network and National Black Doula Association. I’m currently further developing my skill set and knowledge by choosing to go beyond training and pursuing full spectrum doula certification, child birth educator certification, and 200 YTT. Winter of 2020 full spectrum support will be availible to include fertility, abortion, and berevement doula support. I support all reproductive choices and believe every person has the right to bodily autonomy.
