Choosing To Support Natural Birth- One Doula’s Story

Today we are pleased to share a guest post from one of our amazing instructors, Tashina Benning-Witter, who both teaches and works as a doula in the Sacramento, CA area. Tashina does something a little different- she has started to take clients who are only planning a natural birth and are willing to take a comprehensive birth class in order to achieve this. This is something that she has shared with us and which has had an incredible positive impact not just for her, but mostly for her clients. Her story is beautiful and her deep belief that women need somebody to truly support their desire for a natural birth is something that sets her apart. We are so glad to have her be part of our Birth Boot Camp team, and excited to share her words. Enjoy! Read more
