My name is Ginny Mills.  I’m a mom of 3, ages 5, 8, & 18. I live in Jackson, TN.  I have a B.A. in Psychology – emphasis in Child Psych & Development; Minors: Early Childhood Ed and Marriage & Family Counseling. 

 

For over 8 yrs I worked as a Preschool Teacher as well as being a Curriculum & Developmental Behavior Specialist, a Parent Educator, and a Staff Trainer/Supervisor.  After the economy tanked, preschools began to close, and I became a Stay At Home Mom.  I tried making my hobby of making beaded jewelry into a business, but that was not very profitable or fulfilling.  I needed a way to turn my previous education and experience into something I’d love and was needed.  The more I thought about it, the more I realized I was always happy when helping new moms learn what to do or giving advice to pregnant women at the schools I was at.  Since I’m still in touch with the Doula who helped with the birth of my third child, I ran my thoughts by her.  She helped me realize that I really wanted to be a birth professional!

 

While IN TRAINING, I am offering my services at a substantial discount

I am working on my CAPPA Certifications for Labor/Birth Doula & Childbirth Educator! 

SERVICES OFFERED:  Labor Doula/Childbirth Educator-CAPPA Offering Full Prenatal, Labor/Delivery, & Immediate Postpartum

With me as your Doula, you get all my Childbirth Education, Psychology background and Parenting Education Background as part of the package!

Sorry, I was trying to reach different areas of the board not spamming the same area.  Honest.  I'm trying to find other Doulas in my area as well.  I am trying to build a community of birth professionals here in West TN centered around Jackson.  I really didn't think I was breaking policy by posting in different areas.

---Can I at least post this in the Doulas Forum too???
