6 short years ago we had a few dedicated and incredible doulas breaking ground, kicking ass, taking names, and seriously helping change birth in WNY. Thanks to them and the work that they've done spreading the word and representing the profession, so many more women have joined the ranks in supporting empowered birth and other women. It's for this reason that I get reeeeally excited when I'm introduced to new doulas. It excites me because it means MORE women have MORE choices in birth. Because, seriously? That's all I want for every woman in WNY: informed choices.
So without further ado, let me introduce you to Nichole Virag. Go like her fb page Nichole Virag Doula Services and her webite. She's a member of the Buffalo Doula Collective and (shut the front door) has an MSW specializing in community advocacy in children's mental health.
Thanks again for your continued support of Welcome Mama and our local community of holistic resources for birth and early parenting. I'm thrilled with the progress we've all made this year and honored that local businesses have agreed to list their services right here.
