Meet the Doulas
Boozhoo, my name is Megan Wait. I was born and raised here on the Fond du Lac reservation. I became interested in Doula work shortly after having a natural delivery with my daughter Paisley in 2014. I had an amazing experience during my birth and I believe a lot of it was from my support team, having everyone there helping me through delivery was so awesome. I hope to give the same support to women in our community and help them along the beautiful journey of becoming a mother.
Hi my name is Tammy Dixon I started as a birth doula in 1999 and have found my calling in empowering, educating, and supporting women during birth. Each birth is exciting, different and each one creates a new family. It is my great honor to serve women on that life-changing day. I strive to help each woman have the birth experience she desires. I especially love helping dads get as involved as they are able to be! I have attended hospital births, cesarean births, VBACs (Vaginal Birth after Cesarean) high risk and twin births. My husband and I have one daughter she is 10 years old, having her has been the most amazing gift of life has to offer. I have experienced pregnancy loss, and at 40 years old I had a high risk caesarian birth. I believe these experiences give me both compassion and insight for women having a difficult pregnancy or delivery. I had a difficult start with breastfeeding so pumped breast milk for our daughter for 6 months. So I love to encourage moms to provide breast milk by breastfeeding or pumping because it is simply the best milk, liquid gold, designed especially for your baby’s needs.
The experiences I had with my births led me to my current Doula role. There were times I was alone, now I know I could have had a Doula with me. There are so many things I know now that I wish I would have known when I first had my boys. Now that I am a Doula, I am happy to help the mamas I work with have the best experience possible. Now I make sure I get to know my clients, so I become less of a stranger as I support them before, during, and after labor. I want to give great support, information, and encouragement, and help mamas discover the power they had within all along.
