Hello! My name is Ruth and I offer doula services in Anne Arundel County and the surrounding area. If you aren’t sure what a doula is, check out this post for more information.
What led me to working as a doula? Well, birth has always been fascinating, but I had always approached it from the angle of my own personal experiences. My mom likes to tease me about when I was in high school and asking questions about birth just in case I should have to give birth in the middle of a forest in Russia. I did end up giving birth in Russia – in a hospital – where I had lived for about 8 years. I later gave birth to my son in the USA, but I didn’t consider being a doula until 2016 when I first heard about what a doula is and does and thought, “I WANT TO DO THAT!”
