Eastern Shore Doulas was started by Krista Brooks when she became Doula in 2013. Pregnancy and birth have always been important to her. As a child and young adult, she spent her days taking care of pregnant animals, and learning all that she could about pregnancy and birth. That love for nurturing gave her a passion to continue to help other mothers to be. As a Doula and mother of four girls, two of which are twins, she knows the importance of support during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. Every mother should have a choice in her pregnancy and birth. Krista is taking her passion a step further and is working on her schooling to become a Midwife. She is also a lactation counselor and NLP Practitioner. Krista has expanded her dedication to providing help to others even further, adding Counseling Hypnotist and Full Spectrum Life Coach to her list of skills, meeting with families to help treat a range of obstacles, from infertility struggles to addiction.
