Check out this fabulous and thorough review from a recent doula trainee, Amanda Rose Walsh!“By the end of day 2, it felt that the class became a small family. We knew each other intimately and all felt genuinely supported, embraced and celebrated.” – Amanda Rose Walsh Each day I continued to feel lighter, gaining more and more confidence with Debra’s insight and guidance on how to support women in birth. There were so many beautiful take-a-way’s from Debra that will stay with me forever and are imprinted on my heart, for example, “We birth the way we live”, “Be like Wendy” and “Birth it Forward”, just to name a few. But, it was at one single point in the workshop when Debra said, “We know what we need to know when we need to know it” that I instantly felt all of the weight lifted off of my shoulders and I knew that I was now a Doula and that that was all I ever needed to know. Thank you Debra!” -Catalina Glasgow, Jan 2015 grad
