As Black Maternal Health Week draws near, I wanted to invite any new parent you may know to share their birth stories. As a doula, I spend much of my time listening to birth stories and helping others process their birth experience and the feelings that surround these experiences. While trying to navigate my own feelings during this time as a wife, mother, business owner, believer and human being, I wanted to extend my listening ear further and find a way to support those who need to express themselves in a productive way.
Birth in 2020 is a passion project that will allow any birthing person or new/adoptive/surrogate/foster parent to share their COVID-19 birth and family experience. It is a 60 question survey outlining your birth and parenting experience during the outbreak. Please know that this information is being collected for research purposes and I hope it will be a catalyst for processing and healing. Thank you for your time and vulnerability. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.
