The Future of Birthwork!
After her own journey with the Perinatal Advocacy + Labor Support (PALS) Program, Bree felt compelled and inspired to become a birthworker too.
The work we do is fueled by stories about birthing people like Bree.
As the new mother of a 6 month old infant who is currently breastfeeding and supporting her other child, Bree is making bold dreams for her future. She has asked me tons of questions about how to become a doula and is planning to complete training for birth, postpartum, and childbirth education.
You are funding the future of birthwork.
Thanks to the network that TFF has been building in the local area, I have lots of doulas and lactation counselors that can help me offer guidance to Bree in her role as a parent and as she moves toward a future career as a birthworker.
It has been a pleasure connecting her and other clients with a community that values education, evidence-based care, and centering the voices of birthing folks.
You are funding a program with generational impact.
Beyond providing perinatal advocacy + labor support, you are restoring hope, creating pathways for healthier futures, and disrupting intergenerational trauma.
I have no doubt that Bree will be a wonderful birthworker. She plans to attend full spectrum doula training later this year.
Who knows? Maybe someday she'll be writing these reports instead of me.
Wouldn't that be amazing?
PS - Just the other night, another Firecracker baby was born and we are still celebrating.
