Having worked as a sculptor most of my professional life, I was birthed into the doula profession.
After personally experiencing two radically different hospital births: the first one emergency caesarian and the second a VBAC (vaginal birth after caesarian), I saw firsthand how unique every birth is. And our doula was such a grounding support in both circumstances and enabled my husband and I to work effectively as a team.
Thank you endlessly, Nancy!
Now I integrate my artistic skills into my doula profession and provide complete doula services with optional components such as prenatal art making and a drawing session of the family during the first week of birth.
