1. Why did you choose BAI?
I chose Birth Arts because I felt that it pertained not only to the physiology of birth but the whole woman. The program encourages personal growth as a doula and a person. I love that we have a a great network and support for doulas and doulas in training.
2. What did you learn about yourself while taking the program? I learned that I am capable. I am enough. I am strong and I can help other women.
3. Tell us a little about yourself.
My name is Echo Morris and I am 27 years old. I’m married to a wonderful guy named Jeremy. I’m the proud mama of three strapping young men: Riley age 8, Harry age 6, and Max age 1, with another on the way. I love to sing, laugh with my dear friends, and do anything creative. I am from Indiana, but moved to Maryland 7 years ago.
4. Tell us about your business, or plans for the future.
After I return from maternity leave in January of 2014, I plan on concentrating on attending more community events, spreading the word about doulas! I also would like to work on volunteering for teen moms and military moms. I would also like to focus on attending retreats and classes to expand my knowledge and network.
