Bev hit a career midlife crisis when she was in her mid 30s. She had always known that her passion was around working with people and adding value to their lives at a point when they would be at their most vulnerable.
In a weird twisted interpretation of this tug on her heart strings, she announced to her husband that she was going to apply to work for a funeral parlor! Working with people - check Adding value - check Vulnerable people - check! Immediately he told her that wouldn't work and it would kill her,(pun intended)... He suggested that she goes for something that celebrated the beginning of life. She knew she could never be a midwife... the closest she had been to that is watching the Good Doctor! So she went 1 better and became a Birth & Postpartum Doula as well as an Antenatal and Postnatal Facilitator. Bev is passionate about serving women in pregnancy and her pet peeve is witnessing,either in person or otherwise, women being ill treated at a time when they should be celebrated for birthing and mothering.
