Why mumda? I like that mumda is doula owner and operated. It is affirming to have experienced growing in my career and in the company. I love that the doulas also doula each other. We all support one another and nurture each others growth. At the core the agency is all about mothers, sisters, friends, doulas and we are all still connected. I am not some exploitative person coming in and trying to make a profit without a greater intention. Truly empowering, educating, and supporting one another and reaching back pull each other up is what mumda is all about.
Doula philosophy and approach: My doula philosophy is experiencing birth is like experiencing life- its all complicated and professional support is needed.
