So you’re going to have a baby! Well you’re in luck; you have found the only Birth Doula and Childbirth Educator in TX that can sign!
I am a child of deaf parents and have been signing since I was 6 weeks old. I recently asked myself if deaf women in America are really being educated on birth, breastfeeding, and early parenthood. I tried to find childbirth classes just for deaf parents taught in ASL and there is nothing…. UNTIL NOW! I am also offering my birth services to the Deaf community.
It’s time to take charge of your birth as a strong deaf woman and couple! The first step is to become educated of your body’s ability to have a beautiful birth, and your rights as a deaf woman in labor. If you choose me to guide you through this amazing journey, there will be no communication break down because I can sign. You can also trust that my skill as a Doula and advocate will be a great tool for you to use not only during birth but also with breastfeeding and early parenting.
There is a strong need for a signing childbirth educator and Doula; finally I can provide this service. Please spread the word that this service exists and in time we can change the way deaf women give birth, one birth at a time.
Please read “childbirth class” page to get an understanding of what the classes are about.
Check back soon and I will post my IP # as soon as I get connected with VRS.
