Relevant volunteer or advocacy work

I received certification from the Uzazi Village of Kansas City, Missouri 03/2018. I am a Grandmother of ten. I have been a part of all their births and provided postpartum Doula services to my daughters in law as well as my own daughter. I lived in Israel for five years and learned the art of natural birth and support for Mothers from the Ethiopian and Russian communities. I am 52 years old and I offer a life time of love and experience to families. I am in support of breastfeeding, but I am also in support of what the family deems best for their lifestyle. I am presently serving as a Sister Doula for the Uzazi Village in Kansas City Missouri. I am passionate about support for the mother whether she chooses to have her baby at the hospital, a birth center or in the comfort of her home. I know that adjusting to the new baby at home can be a difficult process. That is why I am more than happy to offer flexible and reasonably priced postpartum Doula services for families. I will assist with light cooking, light cleaning, assist with helping Mom and baby thru the breastfeeding process. It is my job to Mother the Mother after childbirth.
