I am currently attending college for my BS in American Sign Language so that I can also serve the deaf community in birth and birth education. After this I plan on working on my Masters, and possibly Doctorate, in Perinatal and Prenatal Psychology.
In my role as Doula, I do not see myself as a "birth coach." I help the mama coach herself so that she can call the shots to achieve the birth she wants. I also help her educate herself by pointing her towards the resources she needs and helping her do research so that she feels comfortable in the choices she makes. I love everything about birth and helping women empower themselves.
Oh, my real name is Nirvana but everyone knows me as Harley. I answer to both.
