Want to know what it's like to work as an Everyday Miracles doula? Our doulas are the best source of information. Here's what some of them have to say.

"Everyday Miracles has been an invaluable resource to me as a birth doula. I supported my first birth with an Everyday Miracles client just one month after completing my doula training, and have supported over 25 EM clients since then. I have had the privilege of supporting a diverse group of moms and families through their final weeks of pregnancy, birth, and early postpartum weeks. I have met a diverse, wise, and nurturing group of doulas who have been my network of support, information, and laughter in the two years since I began my doula work. I highly recommend Everyday Miracles as a place for all doulas to contribute their talents. You will undoubtedly gain incredible knowledge and experience in return!" Julie Schwalbach, CD(DONA)
"My work as a doula with Everyday Miracles has been so rewarding, and I have been reimbursed for my doula services. We serve families that would otherwise not be able to afford doula care. Everyday Miracles also offers classes to expecting families, and I have attended most of the classes for my own continuing education. There is a real sense of community among the Everyday Miracles doulas, and Melissa and the rest of the staff are always available for support. I highly recommend working with Everyday Miracles as a doula. You will serve women and families who need doula care, and you will be supported both professionally and emotionally." Mary Norby CD(DONA) "I love giving back by working for Everyday Miracles. Providing care for women who would not otherwise have a doula is important work, and the support and love I receive from Everyday Miracles makes the job that much better." Erin Tripolino, CD(DONA), CLEC
"The Twin Cities is extremely blessed to have such a wonderful organization as Everyday Miracles. It is an honor to be a part of the mission that allows all women to take control of their birth and the choices surrounding it." Katie Schram CD(DONA)
"Working with Everyday Miracles as both a Birth Doula and Prenatal Yoga Instructor, I've had the pleasure of seeing many  clients throughout their pregnancy journey. I get to see the incredible impact Everyday Miracles has on the people who use these needed services. The clients I have worked with through Everyday Miracles have been some of the most rewarding and some of my favorite clients of all time. Everyday Miracles really works to make personality matches when referring clients. I find I'm able to connect with my EM clients as I do my private-hire clients. And it's so flexible! I can work with one or two clients a month, or a few clients clients a year based on my availability, and I feel like I am making an amazing impact in my community." CD(DONA) Queer Birth Project Co-founder, Childbirth Collective Board Member
"I worked with Everyday Miracles as a doula for two years, before transitioning to my role as Program Coordinator.  The doula work has been among the most rewarding of my life. It has given me the opportunity to connect with incredible people -- from the mothers we serve, to community partners and health care providers -- to the other doulas; who are among the most wise and compassionate people I know. I've learned so much working with Everyday Miracles, and continue to do so. I'm a better doula, and a better person, thanks to my experiences here." Melissa Gutierrez Nelson, Certified Birth Doula (Childbirth International), Doula Program Coordinator
"When I started as a doula, I had no experience, didn't quite know what I was doing, and felt very alone. I heard of Everyday Miracles and right away felt in love with the mission. It is made of a group of genuine woman, striving to provide non-judgmental support and evidence-based information to any mother in need. Every single doula working for this organization is a gem. And Debby, the Director, is by far the best asset of the Minnesota birth community! I have had multiple clients through Everyday Miracles. I owe the doula that I am today to the experience of working with them." Justine Tempke, Birth Doula, Placenta Encapsulator, Lactation Counselor, Co-founder of Midwest Doulas
