Could having a doula really change your birth and postpartum experience?
If you asked me this question before my conversation with today’s guest Gina Giordano, I would have been on the fence. However, after hearing Gina’s story and what being a doula means to her, I’ve become convinced that having a doula is a game changer for both birth and postpartum.
Being the oldest of five children, Gina always loved helping her mother take care of her younger siblings. This love for supporting others is what eventually led Gina to not only become a doula but to also co-found Doula Trainings International (DTI) where she trains doulas with her partner, Tara Brooke.
On today’s episode, Gina is sharing her personal motherhood journey, what it’s like to be a doula, and why she believes that unconditional support is key to having a positive experience.
