I’m Shaina, and I hope to help you understand what a doula does, and how it can be a beneficial service for anyone that wants extra support. As a doula, I am passionate and privileged to help make these experiences as positive as possible. I have been a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) since 2010. I've loved infants since I was two-years-old, and I'm passionate about helping families bring them into the world and care for them. I completed birth doula training with Big Belly Services in January 2019, and my postpartum doula training with NAPS in September 2019. I completed a DONA approved TENS unit training, and I’m very excited to be able to offer that pain coping technique to my clients. I completed a breast/chest feeding course for doulas in 2019 as well, so I am able to further assist my clients with those needs. I am currently doing a VBAC for doulas class through The VBAC Link, as VBACs require extra knowledge, support, and TLC, and I want to be as educated as possible for my clients. I love spending time with my family, being outdoors especially at the beach, reading, watching movies, and traveling.
