My name is Keoshia and I am a Labor Doula. The name of my business is Destined Doula Birth Services. My reason for becoming a Doula is that I came to a place in my life where I lost almost everything. I heard a small voice say, if you could do anything what would it be? I instantly shouted deliver babies because at this point what do I have to lose? Everything had been lost but my mind at this point and it probably was 1 foot in and 1 foot out. Being apart of the Birth World has been a dream of mine since I was a little girl and now this dream was coming true. As I became a Doula and learned more about the birth work and the birth world in general, I realized the need for Doulas especially in the Black Community. Besides the high maternal and infant mortality rate in that particular community, women could benefit from services for so many more reasons. As times are changing women/ families are resorting back to traditional birthing methods such as home births, midwives and Doulas. If you look in the dictionary for the word help more than likely you will see my picture beside it. I’m a now in position to where I can help women and families in so many different ways while also living out my dream. This is truly my purpose and I can’t do anything but Thank God for placing me here.
