About Brittany Bolden PCD(DONA):
After attaining two bachelor degrees from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in Elementary Education and Psychology, she began her family with her husband. In addition to opening her own business, she began to grow her family of six children. While raising her children was the main priority in her life, she continued to be a business owner for 12 years while also being home in the day to raise her children. Using her degree in Elementary Education, she began homeschooling her children starting with her first and continues to this day with her youngest. Her children range in ages from 18 years old to five years old. Her love for children has led her in the path of becoming a doula. It has always been her passion in which now she has time to pursue.
Although motherhood was planned, I never received much help once the baby was here. I had a husband who owned his own business therefore, not allowing any time off. I was pretty much on my own from the start. Being a first time mom can be scary, exhausting, exhilarating, emotional and overwhelming at times. The range of emotions one may feel ranges on such a wide spectrum that it's sometimes hard to be able to relax and simply enjoy the precious time.
My training comes from DONA International (Doulas of North America). Becoming certified under DONA has equipped me with helpful skills in further understanding what new moms will need in order to flourish to their greatest potential. Although my personal background has prepared me for many newborn scenarios, with my official certification, I am better able to assist my new moms in their fourth trimester, the first three months after birth.
My commitment to you will be to nurture you and your baby. I am there to be near you in this beautiful time of your life. I will support you, dedicate myself to your well being as well as create a smooth transition for you and your family.
Newbies VS Veterans
Whether you are a first time new mom or a third, fourth, or fifth timer, a doula can help you transition accordingly. Most doulas will assist a first time mom but in my experience, when you first began to juggle more than one baby, the help of a doula can be priceless. Our services and assistance will be something that no matter if you are a first time mom newbie or a mom of many veteran, we will create a settled and positive transition environment for you and your family during your fourth trimester.
