Blessings! I feel incredibly honored to serve in the role as a doula, and so happy to be part of the Everyday Miracles community. My passion and desire to become a doula was birthed from my own personal experience of loss during pregnancy. The opportunity to provide another woman with the emotional, physical and educational support that I didn’t have, has become my innate passion to pursue.
A trained doula, certified through DONA (Doulas of North America), I’m extremely passionate about supporting families and creating a safe, calm birth environment. As your doula, I share my compassion for an enriching birth experience with mommies-to-be. I work in partnership with new mothers and partners to fully understand their birth wishes and how I can best support them during their journey.
In my downtime, I enjoy outdoor activities, knitting, reading, and cooking (I’m a self-proclaimed foodie!).
My Name is Leila. Born in Somalia, I have lived in many different countries. I am fluent in Somali, English, Swahili, Ugandan, and a little bit of American Sign Language.
I attended North Hennepin Community College in Brooklyn Park where I earned my degree in Public Health and Nutrition. I am a certified birth doula with DONA International.
In addition to my doula work, I am also involved in the community and speak on KFAI radio in Minneapolis once a week. I enjoy working with the radio station because I like to communicate and answer a lot of questions that people have for me.
One of seven children, I live in Minneapolis and enjoy spending time with family and friends. It is truly an honor to be a part of Everyday Miracles.
My name is Mary, and I am honored to serve as a birth doula. I am certified through Doulas of North America (DONA) and have additional training with Gail Tully–the Optimal Birth Position (aka Spinning Babies) Lady.
It is a privilege to support women as they discover their strength and capacity to love. I am the mother of three (mostly grown) children. Being the mother of older children gives me the freedom to fully engage in being a doula, and it also gives me a valuable perspective on birth and motherhood.
A woman’s birth experience is one of the most important events in her life. My goal as a birth doula is to help a mother have the kind of birth that will be meaningful to her.
Being a doula is something I’m passionate about and am dedicated to doing well. Supporting mothers through this special time in their lives gives me great satisfaction. I am in a Certified Birth Doula through DONA International and am currently enrolled in the internship program through Health Foundations Birth Center in St. Paul, Minnesota.
I have the disposition to maintain calm and be reassuring when people are in need of care. Listening to the needs of you and your partner is important to me and I want to make sure that the birth of your baby happens, to the best of my ability, the way you envisioned. Through the miraculous experience of birth, I will support you and your partner to make this special time as fulfilling as possible.
