Helping Fellow Doulas Figure It Out
If you're new here my name is Melissa Duenas-Witter and I have been a birth doula for 10 years. I have made more than a living wage, while being a single mom to
2 young children, doing primarily birth work with a side of childbirth education.
I have a proven track record of running a successful doula business and the experience of having supported over 500 births in that time. I think now is the time to help others through
wisdom sharing and I have developed a unique and immersive mentor program that will help you to gain confidence and allow for you to be successful in this work.
I've been confident in my approach even during times of shifts
and growth for years, but it took a long time to get here. I'm hoping I can help give new doulas a head start and maybe help doulas who have been at it for a bit feel a little less lost while we're at it! Join me for the next mentor session starting July 27th 2023.
