Today we talked with Kayla Rogers from Divine Lotus Doula Services. She was born and raised in Buffalo and reside there with her husband and 3 daughters. She decided to become a Doula while pregnant with my second daughter, after having an amazing homebirth with her first. She started on her path to be a Certified birth doula with DONA in 2016 officially becoming certified in 2017. Since then she has also become a Postpartum Doula and has enrolled in the Medicaid Doula Pilot program.
We talked all about the many pathways to becoming a doula and the different ways the birth community is gathering this summer.
Her book recommendation is Placenta: The Forgotten Chakra
Kayla also discussed the NYS Doula Pilot Program with Shannon Johns as the main doula contact in the Buffalo area.
