Shaunette H. | Doula in Zebulon, NC

Kiota Doula LLC

    Practice overview

    I have enjoyed supporting families through my work as a camp counselor, childcare provider, teacher's assistant and studying early childhood for over 10 years before becoming a doula.
    I have also had the honor of bearing my 6 children with my husband of over 18 years and helping families through their experiences with birth and lactation.

    In 2017 I was introduced to the idea of becoming Doula on my search to find ways to support families. This led to becoming a peer counselor with WIC and studying with Bebo Mia, DONA, and Mamas Village.

    I have now been practicing as a Doula for 5 years and enjoy every moment of it! There is a special place in my heart for teens, first time parents, marginalized groups, and rural communities.
