Still curious about what a Doula is?

A Doula is a professional pregnancy and labor support person and are experts at uplifting and honoring women through the process of labor and birth, while supporting them into the transition of the immediate postpartum and rites of passage of motherhood.

They support physiologic normal birth, high risk pregnancies and attend births in all settings. Doulas are not healthcare providers and do not provide clinical services. They are trained to provide cultural, physical, and emotional supportive care and education.

Tru's Community Doula Training© is hosted by Jamaa Birth Village, created & certified through BTK Consulting Firm© and taught by Doula facilitator Brittany Tru Kellman and her team.

Friday I walked into my first day of Doula certification training not knowing what to expect. We graduated yesterday, and today I am having withdrawal symptoms. I miss being surrounded by their love. I miss seeing the happiness and sadness on their beautiful faces. I miss hearing their personal struggles. I missed how the room naturally filled with love. I miss those warm hugs. I miss the loudness. I miss how Ms. Tru looked at us with pride. I miss how they loved & respected me. I miss all of those strangers that became my tribe.
