We are so happy our Meet the Team Mondays are back because now we get to introduce you to our amazing Postpartum Doula, Amanda.
Amanda is a “girl mom” having 3 daughter ( one of which wins all of our team game nights!) After having her first daughter she felt like she needed someone with her for practical and emotional support. This is when your journey to become a doula began and she is able to provide the support to families that she desired as a new mother. Being a Doula brings Amanda a deep sense of purpose and joy and she has always loved working with people through education and practical support.
Amanda enjoys going for hikes with her girls and being outside as much as possible during her free time. She also loves catching up on a favorite Netflix series or watching Hallmark movies, mixed with reading about anything. Amanda is a huge animal lover, we assume, since she has a menagerie of animals including a puppy, two cats, an albino leopard gecko and a tarantula! Like most if us, Amanda is a huge coffee fan!
Let’s get to know Amanda better by going through the answers to our Meet the Team Monday questions!
