MEET THE WOMEN
We are Charlotte and Gabby! We met in our birth doula training in Asheville NC, in the fall of 2017. We instantly connected as soul sisters with a shared drive to support women and travel the world. Through the grace of a fateful internet search, Gabby connected with a midwife in Tanzania and arranged a trip to work as a doula in a local maternity clinic. Without skipping a beat, Charlotte bought a ticket and they landed in East Africa shortly thereafter.
Wombs of the World was born after having doulas reaching out to us on social media asking about our trip. We greatly reflected on our experience in Tanzania, and our life’s work and journey as women to create this program. Our intention is to offer a unique travel opportunity for birth workers and women. The service as doulas is about sharing a complete experience with a laboring mama and offer her postpartum care, to spread gentler and healthier births. We are growing a powerful sisterhood of women by sharing our skills and hearts.
Since the start of Wombs of the World in 2018, a lot has changed in the world and in our lives. Gabby is completing her midwifery degree and will be an incredible asset to mothers everywhere. She is on track to obtain her CPM license by 2022. Her long-term goals are to deepen the presence of Wombs of the World with midwifery care and to serve as a midwife with Doctors without Borders. Charlotte is starting her Masters in Social Work and will focus on perinatal mental health to support families and better serve our traveling doulas as they process these experiences.
We are so grateful for the development of these projects. We have had the pleasure to connect with incredible non-profits working locally in Tanzania and Ecuador to grow the potential of what doulas can do.
