Meet Summer, Doula in Martinsburg, WV!
Hello everyone! My name is Summer and I’m a doula in the panhandle region of West Virginia.
What first got you interested in doula work?
After giving birth to my daughter and seeing how wonderful my birthing team was, I knew this is something I wanted to do.
Do you have any particular passions concerning birth?
I’m very passionate about high risk pregnancies and births. My daughter was high risk with a congenital diaphragmatic hernia, so I know all about the fear and anxiety that go with having these types of pregnancies.
With so many doula trainings out there, why did you choose Birth Boot Camp DOULA training?
Birth Boot Camp appeared to be more of a family and a close knit unit, whereas others just seemed like typical corporate companies.
Tell us about your training experience.
My trainer Jillian Freeland was my favorite part of training. She’s so infectious and passionate about what she does that I was super confident when leaving training.
What is your favorite thing about doula work?
I love my job. My favorite part is the bonds I make with the families I serve.
How did your training prepare you for actual birth attendance?
I felt confident in my skills and hands on training when I left. At my first birth I put my skills to use as if I had been doing this all my life.
How do you feel you are having a positive impact with your doula clients?
I feel as if I am having a positive impact with my clients because I am still in touch with them after their births.
To close, how do you believe doulas can make a positive difference in the birth experience for women?
Doulas are there for you no matter what. We strive to support the birth that you want!
