Shannon‘s love for childbirth goes back to childhood when she started watching TLC’s A Baby Story and it only grew from there. She started high school with her focuses narrowed down upon early childhood education and early childhood development. After graduation she got a job working in a local daycare and eventually decided to do an in-home daycare where she was able to raise her three children.
After finding out exactly what a doula was, along with prayers, all the stars aligned and she knew this is what she was meant to do. Two weeks later she attended a workshop by DONA for being birth doula. Shannon is excited to continue her doula journey with postpartum work.
