Welcome back to our Meet the Team Mondays. We don’t know about you but days seem to be slowing down and speeding up at the same time! We are sorry to have kept you waiting for so long to meet more of our amazing team. You can also get to know our Doulas better by joining us virtually on every third Wednesday of the month at our Meet the Experts workshop register for the next one here.
Now without further ado we would like to introduce you to Zainab.
Zainab is a Birth and Postpartum Doula with us at Helping Hands. She has a kind, gentle, soft spoken soul. Zainab has always been drawn to caregiving roles and feels honoured to be a part of the journey of someone’s transitioning into the next stages of life. After years of of supporting those in the hospice palliative state, she grew into exploring the transformative times of parenthood. Funny enough, she feels these two very different life stages are more similar than one would think. We know you will appreciate Zainab’s expertise and support.
We asked Zainab our Meet the Team Monday questions so you can get to know her a little better.
