erica eakes | doula in training
My name is Erica and I am a Birth Doula that received training with a DONA certified trainer and am working towards my DONA certification. I am fulfilling a decade long desire to start my own business that provides the ultimate support, connection, and encouragement of women and their families.
I spend my most joyful moments in life making sure that the people that I am surrounded with are comfortable, happy, and full of the good food I love to make! I am creative and compulsively crafty. I have a love affair with nature and truly believe in the restorative power of meditation. I am mamma to two adorable and funny Chihuahua fur babies and I'm incredibly lucky to be married to an awesome man who fully supports my career to be the best Labor Support Doula for you that I can be!
I believe that birth is an incredibly sacred and transformative event in a woman and families life. I will always be aware that this your birth story and I will trust that you will make the best decisions for you and your baby. I will honor your choices and support you in your moments of vulnerability and in your moments of strength. I will help gather knowledge and information, and remind you of your birth plan goals. I will listen with a compassionate heart and encourage you.
I will do my best to make your partner feel comfortable and will encourage as little or as much in the the labor support as you and your partner would like.
It would be an honor to be your Doula, and walk down this path with you.
