My Doula Journey
Erika Jones is an early childhood development specialist, Certified Postpartum Doula and Labor Doula, a Certified Lactation Educator, and mother of two. She is also CPR certified by the American Heart Association. A former elementary school teacher, she was drawn to this work after the powerful hospital births at Skyridge and University in 2006 and 2011. Erika completed her initial birth and postpartum training with Ana Hill and through the CAPPAorganization. She went on to complete her lactation training with Laurel Wilson and deepened her capacity to nurture and connect with couples and their babies, reaffirming her belief of the mother’s instinctual knowledge of how to birth. Erika continues to acquire the latest in research-based information to practice and to pass on to each family. With a background in education, she brings warmth and a sense of humor to her clients. Now the mother of two, Erika lives in Colorado and happily travels to Douglas County, the Denver metro area, and beyond. I am so grateful that I get to experience this very special time in birth and Postpartum with moms.
Every family deserves the truth.
Everywoman deserves a doula! I won’t sugarcoat the truth of Postpartum in labor. You can expect to be clued into the best evidence-based birth knowledge.
