A Doula? A Doulatog? | Bowling Green, KY Maternity and Birth Photographer
Yeah ... A doula!
As many of you may know, I am a photographer, more specifically, a birth photographer. What you may not be aware of is I am also a volunteer. I have been associated with Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep since 2011. NILMDTS (for short) is a volunteer organization that offers remembrance photography, free of charge, for families suffering the loss of an infant. More recently, I became an Area Coordinator for the Kentucky area and assist with some parts of Tennessee. I've been looking into the Stillbirthday organization for some time. It was on my heart to find other ways to help families in my community and this is just the volunteer path that I was led to. So, considering the direction that my business has gone and my work with NILMDTS, it just made sense to enroll in classes to become a certified birth and bereavement doula.
What does this mean for me professionally? I really don't know yet. Once trained, I will be able to offer full doula services to families in our area .. I could be a doulatog .. that might be cool, but honestly I'll just keep following my heart and see where it leads me ..
That heart of mine :)
So April will be a busy month with starting classes and a fully booked month for birth photography. I CAN'T WAIT!
