Trained Labor & Birth Doula, Trained Postpartum Doula, Trained Placenta Specialist
I am Jasmine Merritt. I am a DONA international trained Birth and Postpartum doula from Sweet Home Montgomery, Alabama and currently residing in beautiful Honolulu, Hawaii. Growing up in the South, I was introduced to the importance of supporting women throughout birth at an early age. My passion for women’s health and helping women to understand the power of their own voice has shaped my love for becoming a doula.
My goal is to inspire, empower, and educate families on how to achieve their best birth experiences. My belief is that by using evidence based information and aiding you in creating a sacred space for your birth it will assist you in achieving your goals. Regardless of how your baby enters the world, you deserve to be respected in the choices you make. Your needs should be tended to with expertise, love, understanding, and gentleness.
A little more about me, I graduated from the University of Alabama (Roll Tide Roll) where I received a Bachelors in Public Health and Women’s Studies. I became interested in Doula work after understanding how representation matters and understanding the statistics of the maternal mortality rates for women of color all over the world.
As your birth and Postpartum doula, I am there to support you emotionally, physically, and mentally with information and love. I will listen to your needs and concerns, and assist you and your support team in making the best decision for your birth.
