Four years ago, Naima Beckles and Michele Arrieta, joined forces and started, For Your Birth, a childbirth consultancy and doula agency that’s making the journey to motherhood easier for so many, and that supports doulas on their own journey — something Naima and Michele realized was missing in their field. They also realized the gap in postpartum support for many mothers, especially those within often-marginalized groups such as people of color and in the LGBTQ community. As a result, Naima and Michele created The Essential Guide to PostPartum Support, an ebook available exclusively on their web site foryourbirth.com.
On this episode of the Support is Sexy podcast, the pair discuss the beauty and the business of being a doula, why doulas — just like moms — need support, and why support for all families needs to expand beyond the delivery room.
On this episode we discuss:
- What it really means to be a doula
- How doulas advocate for you as a mom.
- What doulas need to think about when it comes to setting up their own businesses and doing this work.
- Why For Your Birth focuses on marginalized families and empowering them.
- Difference between birth doulas and postpartum doulas.
