Vicki began her training as a doula after taking a local workshop offered by DONA international. https://www.dona.org/
During the workshop she was able to not only gain information and knowledge but also network with other doulas in training. https://www.brandondoulas.ca/
Herself and a co-doula had a dream to pursue and started
Earth Mother Doulas https://www.facebook.com/earthmotherdoulas/
While Vicki continued gaining experience and working towards her DONA certification the timeframes and life plans for the two took different directions. It became apparent that Vicki would need to take a different approach. And so came Vicki Sturgeon- Doula. Thus here I am. In order to ensure continuous coverage and no burnout arrangements have been made with a partner of sorts and backup agreement with precious nest the lovely Joleene, Kelky Hofer, and Alyssa Calvert. Vicki continues to work avidly with other community doulas in order to promote the Birthing in Westman series https://www.brandondoulas.ca/birthing-in-westman-series
Because of the high degree of passion involved in building community and supporting mothers many of the community doulas work together and encourage you to shop around and find the right fit for you. Just like each birthing person is individual so is each doula.
VALUES- uniqueness - Every birthing person is a unique individual, care is individualized based on specific needs
Inclusivity- Regardless of race, sexuality, identity, pregnancy circumstances, all persons welcome.
