In this episode of the Catalyst Community Connections Podcast, we discuss what a doula is, what services they provide and who might benefit from hiring a doula for their birth and/or postpartum with Melinda Ferguson, owner, mentor, and doula at Calm & Confident Doula Care. 

Through the experience of having her own children, Melinda came to appreciate how overwhelming being a new parent can be. She left a career as an oceanographer and environmental scientist to become a birth and postpartum doula. Melinda loves supporting new families and doulas. She's a DONA Postpartum Doula Trainer, and a DONA Advanced Certified Birth and Postpartum Doula with more than twelve years experience and hundreds of families supported. She especially enjoys working with families experiencing a high risk pregnancy or perinatal mood or anxiety disorder (depression, anxiety, etc.). 

This podcast and its discussions contain only the opinions of Dr. Emerald and his guests. The content should not be taken as medical advice or offer diagnoses of any sort. This podcast is for informational purposes only, so please consult your healthcare professional for any medical questions.
