Podcast Season 2 Episode 2 – Why Shannon Became a Doula

Shannon Podcast

We are so excited to share with you a two part podcast where Shannon and Andrea share about the hows and whys of becoming a doula. Below is a sneak peek into the 1st episode/

“Have you thought about hiring a postpartum doula because I just didn’t have much support here in Omaha, and I knew that I just couldn’t trust anybody with the delicate scenario. I was having intrusive thoughts which I knew I wouldn’t act upon, but they were there and I didn’t want to be shamed for that. I knew I couldn’t hand over a screaming baby to, you know, just a 14. 15, 16 year-old mommy helper. And I really needed someone who could walk alongside me and my journey, maybe give me some tips on how to soothe her. Something. I haven’t tried being able to hold space for me. Listen to me just vent about everything that was going on and how this crying baby just flipped my world upside down.”
