As World Doula Week came to its end, Birth Becomes Her shared breathtaking pictures that honor the amazing work of doulas everywhere.

Birth Becomes Her co-founder, Monet Nicole, says that when mothers talk about their birth stories, the connection a doula and the mother have is so powerful, it often happens immediately. The support, love and comfort that doulas give on the most intense days of your life leave life-long impact, she says.

Essentially, doulas hold the space for women giving birth.

Though doulas certainly advocate for their clients during the labor and delivery process, Monet thinks that doulas are unsung heroes who support their clients as they find their own voices and own innate strengths.

  1. Those photos bring tears to my eyes. I, too, had an amazing Doula, Michelle, for all 3 of my births. She was strength and wisdom that my husband (my wonderful husband, I should add) could not be because he has never been in that place. Michelle prayed with me in what seemed to be dark moments leading up to my 9#6 oz. son being born. All was fine but I felt like I might explode and have to have major colon surgery immediately following birth….it seems funny now but not in the moment. She assured me that I was right where I needed to be and to just “let it go.” She prayed and I moved on. Thank you God for Michelle!
