For Birth Sisters Doula Services' LaToshia Rouse, becoming a doula changed her entire life because she gets to give people exactly what she wishes she had while delivering her 4 children (including triplets). According to LaToshia, "the reward is instant. It's addictive and you get to do it again and again, and you keep hearing the stories."
But unfortunaely, there's a dark side to stories, which include hearing about the maternal mortality statistics and mistreatment numbers. For LaToshia, that's just another opportunity to help.
Today's episode is hosted by Dr. Kristin Tully, co-chair of the MHLIC Innovation Support Core, and researcher at UNC Chapel Hill.
