I am Rebekah Bryant. I am a daughter, sister to 5 brothers, 3 sisters, 2 stepbrothers and I have 15 nieces and nephews. The whole time I was growing up I knew that I wanted to do something that included children but was unsure as to what capacity. In 2016, I got to witness the birth of one of my nephews and that is when it hit me – I wanted to work with mothers and babies!! It is then I decided to become a certified Doula. Doulas are not medical professionals; they don’t deliver babies or give medical care. A Doula is someone who provides emotional and physical support to mothers before, during, and after childbirth. A Facebook friend of mine had attended the Birth Book Camp Doula Training. I had already made a list of programs I should attend. Birth Boot Camp was close to the top of that list and then when I heard the amazing things she had to say, I decided that Birth Boot Camp was exactly what I needed and was looking for. So, I went to the training in February of 2021 and became a Birth Boot Camp Doula. I am so excited for what the future holds for me and the couples I will meet.
Amazing! Birth is so amazing! It’s amazing what the woman's body can go through. Birth is one of the most intimate moments in a couple’s life; I am there to work with mom and dad, not to replace dad. My mission statement is threefold. Firstly, it is to help mothers and fathers gain access to the information they will need to make the best, most informed decisions. Education plays such a vital role in birth. Secondly, I am there to support couple’s in their decisions for their birth wherever they choose to have the baby; in the hospital, at a birth center, or in their home. Thirdly, I am there to support them in how they choose to birth; with or without pain medication and in whichever position they choose to birth in, if their healthcare provider says it is safe for mom and baby
