Being a mother of 4, a wife to my husband and getting the privilege of serving these beautiful mamas and their partners is a true calling in my life! This is definitely my passion! I take great honor in what I do. I continue to learn and educate myself by going to different workshops, advanced doula training's, breastfeeding training, birth photography training, reading all kinds of childbirth books, going to meetings and so much more.

My Dula testimony with Shannon Anderson.

My name is Lindsey Manning and Shannon Anderson who was my Dula and also my twin sister who was with me through my pregnancy, I was alone and pregnant and had a very difficult 9 months dealing with things from depression to health issues with my pregnancy but Shannon was always there anytime I needed anything or just to talk because I was afraid of the what ifs or how I was going to be able to handle a newborn with the situation I was in.. She always had a way to put my mind at ease and she would share her experience with me then when the big day arrived she drove 4 hours to be with me when it was time for the c section, she was with me 5:30 am from checking in to labor and delivery and in the operating room every step of the way.. She was the first one to hold my beautiful baby girl as I couldn't hold her, she was the amazing women who was there for me in such a time that should be so full of joy and happiness and turned it into one of the best moments of my life to have her with me!!! The beautiful thing about her being a Dula is that this has been her calling since she was a child, she is the most compassionate caring loving GENUINE person you could ever have by your side and I'm so thankful and blessed to have her as my sister and to have had her as my Dula! Thank you being there for me and my little baby girl!!
