Relevant volunteer or advocacy work

Prior to starting my doula career, I have served family and friends through physical and emotional support, as well as phone/email/text support. I offer breastfeeding support to friends who need assistance. I offer babywearing education if asked ( Have been babywearing for a little over 2 years, I know about Moby, Infantino ( crotch dangler, scarf trick is recommended), Mei Tei Sash, Ergo and Tula. I am not familiar with any other baby carriers on the market) I serve civilian and military families who are to become pregnant through artificial insemination or intrauterine insemination, as well as sexual intercourse, and adoption. Women and families who suffer through a loss in any trimester regarding pregnancy and thereafter, whether induced miscarriage (abortion, D&C etc..) or otherwise (unexpected miscarriage/loss/stillborn.) Spouses going through a deployment will receive reduced services. I have a bereavement support group on Facebook, reach out to me if you’d like to join.
