Darcy Sauers is the founder of The Postpartum Doula Academy and has been a DONA certified postpartum doula since 2010. She talks to The Birth Geeks today to emphasize that we need to band together as birth workers – it’s about collaboration NOT competition. And Hillary and Darcy lament about how we spend a lot of time trying to explain what doulas do before we can ever get to the “hire me” phase!
Prior to having her own 3 children and becoming a doula, Darcy worked for 10 years in the advertising and marketing world. She uses this experience to help other doulas build their own thriving practices. Get her free decision-making checklist on 3 Questions to Ask Before you Invest in More Doula Training.
The Doula Darcy is also the co-host of the Your Birth, Your Worth Podcast which explores how our birth and postpartum experiences shape our feelings of worth.
Right now, I’m also offering a self-paced, online class Take Your Postpartum Doula Business Virtual to help postpartum doulas continue to serve families during the Coronavirus pandemic.
