Why the new title?
(previously Lorrell The Doula)
Why the new title: Mother. Doula. Lover. Fighter?
Mother – my identity, who I am, the reason Why I am here today, doing this work. Experiencing the journey of motherhood has truly opened my eyes to see how many gaps there are in Maternity care and the endless benefits of Doulas
Doula – my role, my ‘job’, what I do
Lover – I love what I do. I love deeply. I pour love into my work, into the words I share, spreading love and light to those around me and to mothers and people who identify as mothers/or want to be. I love my clients. Giving encouragement, understanding and positivity goes a long way. I don’t sit with negativity/negative vibes or spread it – thats not me nor will it ever be
Fighter – fighting against current birth culture and climate that places such little value on women, birth and the postpartum period, against the notion that we don’t deserve to INVEST in ourselves at the most important time in our lives, fighting for women’s rights in pregnancy and birth, fighting against disparities in care and outcomes for black women. Fighting against stereotypes about birth, birthing people, about homebirth, about DOULAS
This is me.
