Doula and Evidence Based Birth® Instructor Traci Weafer gives a glimpse into the challenges and successes of working with birthing families in Alabama. After having her first child, Traci realized many in her community lacked birth education, and she noticed gaps in maternity care. Her passion to educate led her to early opportunities to learn from midwives and she eventually launched her career as a doula. Later she became an Evidence Based Birth® instructor, and she will soon be a Spinning Babies® parent educator. Traci also focuses on mentoring new doulas through online communities.
While she has tackled many challenges, Traci has been able to witness many successes in her community, including improvements in VBAC rates, evolved language among hospital staff, respectful informed consent and teamwork, and a focus on family centered care.
