“When choosing a doula, it’s so important to find someone that sees the sacred knowledge needed for the birth space. Having some experience in birth work, I knew how important it was to feel supported, loved and empowered by those in the room. Especially if you’ve experienced sexual trauma.
I knew that choosing my doula would be easy, because I knew Shawnda. At the time, she wasn’t offering this service, but I felt it deep in my heart that her presence would help ease me while in labor. Shawnda held the space so well; reassuring my husband and allowing me the space to explore my own labor. She encouraged me & was intuitive with anything I needed.
I brought my daughter earth-side in the comfort of my own home. And it felt exactly like that. Everything, including Shawnda’s presence, felt like bringing her home.”
