How long have you been in the childbirth field?

30 years

Why did you become a doula and childbirth educator?

I became certified after many years of helping mommas at their births because I wanted to help the family income. After September 11,2001 my husband lost over 60% of his pay. We have 9 children and this was something I have done for years as a volunteer. I decided to get the credentials so I could get paid and eventually teach others to do what I do and still be home with my children most of the time.

What's your favorite moment from your career so far?

Watching moms reach their birth goal and shout, I DID IT!!! I DID IT!!! :-)
