Over the past four years, my journey as a doula has been a profound and enriching experience, deeply rooted in my upbringing in a Nigerian home that inherently valued and cherished the journey of motherhood from conception through post-partum. The essence of being a doula for me lies in the belief that mothers are inherently made for childbirth, and my role is to provide unwavering support to facilitate this natural process. One of the aspects I love most about being a doula is the opportunity to advocate for mothers. It brings me immense joy to be the voice that ensures their desires and preferences are respected throughout the birthing experience. This involves fostering open communication and understanding, not only with the healthcare team but also with the mother's partner, if present. Ensuring that the partner feels supported is a crucial aspect of my role, creating a harmonious environment that enhances the overall birthing experience. Embracing holistic measures is another cornerstone of my approach as a doula. Recognizing and respecting the diverse needs of each mother, I strive to incorporate holistic practices that align with their preferences, whether it be relaxation techniques, aromatherapy, or other complementary methods. This commitment to holistic care extends beyond childbirth, encompassing the post-partum period, where I continue to offer emotional and practical support to aid in the transition to motherhood. In essence, my journey as a doula is guided by a deep respect for the innate strength of mothers, a cultural appreciation for the holistic well-being of the mother and child, and an unwavering commitment to advocating for the mother's wishes.
