Becoming a Doula
Do you have the Love to become a Doula?
Do you have a love for the pregnant and newborn?
Do you have a love to be non-judgmental?
Do you love to share with families dealing with difficult situations?
"After attending my first birth with a friend in 1992, I realized this was a calling for me and I pursued my options of helping others in this way."
"We love because He first loved us."
1 John 4:19
Labor of Love Doulas come from various denominational and economic backgrounds.
We range from women with no children through grandmothers.
Our common denominator is a passion for serving
and loving families in our community in the name of Jesus.
"I've always wanted to make a difference, even if it was for one person. I've gotten to see someone who was hurt and put down by so many people, change into an amazing parent. I've gotten to see the first bonds of a mom and a baby! To me, being a Doula gives me a chance to see life at it's fullest and most amazing moments!"
