Three and a half years ago a friend sent me this video in an email. I listened to it while at my 9-5. I was forever changed. I was inspired, motivated and proud at the same time. I felt compelled to research more about my family's ties to midwifery. My great-grandmother had 17 children at home in rural Arkansas. My grandmother had two children at home, one being my mother.
When my friend first mentioned to me that I should look into becoming a midwife, I thought he was crazy. "Me, a midwife? LOL." I knew the work was important, but I thought it was too important for me... too great of a task to handle for me.
This video planted a seed in my mind and heart which grew into a desire to answer a divine calling. I took the next step in my journey of practicing holistic women's health. Becoming a doula was a natural progression.
I'm blessed to have had an opportunity to be trained by Mama Shafia Monroe at the headquarters of the International Center for Traditional Childbirth.
