Doula Spotlight - Camila Rhodes
Each month we feature one Doula from our fabulous team Postpartum Doulas! This month we spoke with the wonderful Camila Rhodes and here’s what she had to say!
“From the time I was a child, all I ever wanted to do was take care of babies I started off as a nanny, then I was a preschool teacher, then the mother of my own two precious hildren and then a Doula. It is an honor and a pleasure to support new mothers during this unique and magical time. Whether it’s educating and guiding you, preparing meals for you and your family, giving you a neck massage or just letting you get some rest, I am here for you! I am also a birth Doula and Childbirth Educator.“
What is your funniest memory/moment with a family or baby?
I was taking care of baby twins and we decided to try probiotics for the first time and they worked VERY well. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same for the electricity. There was a 9 hour power outage. So there was no heat, no way to heat up bottles, their Snoos were in-operable and they were pooping up a storm in the dark! It was a night for the books for sure.
Do you have a place to travel/visit?
Kauai...this island is magical.
What is your spirit animal:
