How to Become a Doula: Balancing Your Passion and Self Care
So, if you’re curious about the realities of being a doula and want some idea of what your life will look like, this podcast episode is a must-listen! Ashley and I talk frankly about the on-call life and keeping your family the first priority. Work life balance is one of the biggest challenges of doula life.
This work attracts people that have a heart of service and sometimes not the strongest boundaries. Doula work requires solid self-care and work on yourself to maintain healthy mental health and a long career. Self-work and self discovery is one of the largest topics we cover in our Doula Education Series(coming again in Spring of 2024). If you are living as a balanced doula, then the families you serve will be fully supported.
We go over the tools to make this a reality for you and share things you may want to get in place before beginning your career. We need more doulas and childbirth educators and we want you here for a long time! There is no need to compare yourself to anyone else – you are right where you need to be!
