My journey to becoming a doula started all the way back in 2003, I just didn’t know it at the time. After enduring a year’s worth of infertility treatment, followed by a year-long IVF process, our beautiful twins arrived in 2005. My struggle instilled a deep sense of empathy in me for all families dealing with infertility. Several years later, a friend was going through a third round of IVF and was starting to contemplate surrogacy. I decided I was going to help her if need be.
