I love going to interviews!  It’s an amazing chance to chat with expecting parents about the work I love as a postpartum doula in Metro Detroit, Michigan.

Just a few days ago I was asked by a dad-to-be, “Why are you a postpartum doula?”

We had talked about my training, my certification, and how I train postpartum doulas all over the Midwest of the United States.  We had discussed my own family and my four kids.  He wondered why I didn’t want to be a stay at home mom?  Why help new families?

My answer is simple.  I’m a postpartum doula because this work is what I was put on earth to do.

To me there is nothing better than making life easier for parents after their new babies arrive.  I love to watch mothers and father gain confidence as they learn new skills and get to know their baby.    I love to support their parenting choices!

Why did you decide to do the job you currently work at?  I’d love for you to share your story in the comments below.
