Being a Doula is who I AM and is something I am forever discovering…. What I do know for sure is I have a passion for LIFE. Empowering women during pregnancy, labour and birth to ask THEIR questions and to stay focused on any outcome, keeps my energy on high gear. I believe in “YOUR STORY”. As a doula, I work from any location and position possible to always know that you, my client are the most satisfied in THIS moment.
How do I do this? I am spontaneous - which suits the doula lifestyle perfectly – but I also love organization. So, before every birth I attend, I look at my Doula list of items and ensure that they are all checked - including extra snacks. In the car on the way to your birth, I crank up the music (ANYTIME of the day or night). And when I park my vehicle upon arrival at your home or hospital, I take deeeeeeeep breaths and remind myself “you got this”.
As a mom, wife and woman, I spend the majority of a typical day forgetting what I was about to do. Haha. In all seriousness, my life is my girls first and that starts at the early hours of the morning. Sweet snuggles start my day. And in my time for myself, I am forever reading, learning, and taking deep breaths.
“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you” – Oprah Winfrey
“When our son was born, although we did our best to plan for parenthood, we had no idea what was in store for us. I was diagnosed with postpartum depression and anxiety. Despite having help from family and friends, it wasn't enough, and my therapist suggested I call The Womb and ask about their Doula services. We were contacted by Shannon, and the moment we met her in person, our lives were forever changed. Shannon, came into our home, followed our lead, allowed us to get the breaks we needed, answered all of our questions as first time parents, and showed us how it was possible to run a household with an infant. She supported us through our ups and downs providing text, phone and in-person help when needed. Our son fell in love with Shannon and we did as well. She has become part of our family and our lives would not be the same had she not been a part of it. Thank you to The Womb and to Shannon for making parenting a joy and for helping me work through my postpartum depression.” —Denise
