MEET THE WOMEN
Wombs of the World was born after Charlotte Brielle and Gabby Hardin met in their doula training in 2017 in Asheville, NC. The two instantly connected as soul sisters with a shared drive to support birthing people 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.
After that first trip, doulas started reaching out to them on social media, asking about their trip. They greatly reflected on their experience in Tanzania and their life’s work and journey as women to create this program. Their intention is to offer a unique travel opportunity for birth workers. The service as doulas is about sharing a complete experience with a laboring person and offering them postpartum care, to spread gentler and healthier births. In the process of facilitating trips, they have developed a powerful sisterhood of doulas by sharing their skills and hearts.
Charlotte had connections in Ecuador, as things beautifully fell into place. Wombs of the World follows green lights, and is so grateful to have connected with incredible partners abroad who share in the vision of gentler births leading to a gentler world.
Since the start of Wombs of the World in 2018, a lot has changed in the world and in their lives.
Charlotte is now living in a small Colorado mountain town and is getting her master's in social work. She is specializing in perinatal health and wellness and is an active doula in her community. She facilitates postpartum support groups and is contacted through her local hospital to offer complimentary doula support to mothers on Medicaid, who are high risk, or who have a mental health referal. She is eager to combine her social work skills and doula experience to best be of service to families everywhere.
Throughout the pandemic, Gabby completed her midwifery degree. She is currently living in Mexico, serving as a midwife. She is no longer actively involved with Wombs of the World but her energy will forever be felt. Her long term goals are to broaden midwifery care and serve world-wide.
