This week is a bit different than normal – I’m talking with Mariana (Bump to Babies) about her experience working as a doula and newborn care specialist. Rebecca, who was on my very first episode of the podcast, is also back on to give her perspective as a doula in training!

Mariana talks about her education, role, responsibilities, and experiences as a doula in the first part of the episode. In Part Two, she answers some questions from the Twitterverse about a doulas role in different scenarios.
Here is a bit more about Mariana & Rebecca:
Mariana Rodrigues is owner of Bump to Babies,a doula and a newborn care specialist! She lives in Louisiana, is married to her sweet husband Austin, they have two pups and their first baby is on the way! Mariana has always had such a passion for the birth world and decided to pursue a career helping to educate and advocate for the best births and postpartums. What started as a blog a few years ago has grown into a community and has led to so many moms feeling empowered and educated in how they chose to birth their sweet babies and raise them. Mariana’s biggest goal is that all moms feel supported through all things #bumptobabies.
Hey friends! I am Rebecca, and I reside in Ohio in the states. I’m a mom to a beautiful girl named Piper. I had a water birth, which was the most empowering decision I have ever made for myself. In fact, my birth influenced me to become a doula after discovering a passion for being an advocate for myself (and others) and finding empowerment in education.
