Shannon Whittaker - New York
In 2020, I decided to become a full-spectrum doula, primarily to serve women in the Black community. My inspiration stemmed from a heart wrenching statistic of the Black Maternal Mortality Rate in America. After doing research on how I could help, I came across the National Black Doulas Association. I fell in love with their philosophy of doula/birth work, which is a more holistic and spiritual approach to birthing and the journey of motherhood. I recently certified with Going With Grace as an End-of-Life/ Death Doula.
