Relevant volunteer or advocacy work

I have been passionate about women's health care for as long as I can remember! The innate strength of women and the miracle of birth has certainly helped shape my career thus far. In my studies, I came to realize that not many women were aware of the many benefits of doula support. I also found that many women could not afford such support... So, I want to be affordable and accessible to all women in this area. While working as a doula, I am also studying to be a nurse, in hopes of one day becoming a Certified Nurse Midwife. This is where I learned most of my techniques and fell in love with the labor and birth process. I have advanced training pertaining to pregnancy, labor, and birth since I studied it and cared for women hands-on for over 6 months in hospitals. I trained with Birth Arts International's Doula Program and I am also affiliated with Doulas by the Bay.
