My name is Erin Maness, after battling fertility issues and being diagnosed with hypothyroidism, I entertained the thought of becoming a doula during my pregnancy. Following the birth of my daughter, I wanted to wait to make sure it was something I remained passionate about. My passion has grown as I believe all mothers deserve the fruits of the spirit; love, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control during pregnancy, labor, and postpartum time. I am currently working towards certification through DONA International involving training in support through pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum care, and breastfeeding. I offer doula services in Shelby & Jefferson Counties of Alabama and also online birth and postpartum plans.
“I will greet this day with love in my heart. For this is the greatest secret of success in all ventures. Muscle can split a shield and even destroy life but only the unseen power of love can open the hearts of men and until I master this art I will remain no more than a peddler in the marketplace. I will make love my greatest weapon and none on whom I call can defend against its force.” -Og Mandino
