On this week's episode Tinesha and Kelley welcome Fametta Darling, of My Darling Doula services, to speak on the power of the body, the need for community and her work as a birth support advocate.
My Journey to birth work...
My name is Fametta Darling and I come to this work after years in more academic shoes. My background is in Project Management, but after experiencing the birth of my son, I knew that my real passion was the hands-on work of serving birthing families as a doula and a childbirth educator. I work with families around the Charlotte area to create a positive, satisfying, and empowering birth experiences.
I believe that the process of human childbirth is a normal physiological process perfectly designed by nature to bring babies into the world. It is an instinctive, primal experience that has its own rhythm and pace which should be respected and honored. A pregnant person should have as much control as possible in determining their care, and should be encouraged to be active participants in decision-making and self-care. When informed, supported and encouraged to follow their own instincts, they can be active givers of birth rather than passive receivers of birth technology. Childbirth, when experienced in this way, has the potential to be a transformative event; people who take responsibility for their births and give birth to their babies under their own power, emerge from the experience empowered, with a new sense of their own capabilities. My philosophy emphasizes personalized care for each person’s unique labor and delivery.It is my goal to help foster confidence in expecting parents and their ability to give birth.
I am also a proud and constant ally of the LGBTQA - identifying members of the birthing community.
