In this podcast episode, my guest Brenna Turner shares all about the life experiences and faith journey that led to her becoming a doula. She explains that motherhood has always been her focus and dream and that through her work as a doula she has the opportunity to encourage other moms as well.
Brenna remembers that from a very early age her family was having conversations around birth, but it wasn’t until the birth of her own children that she began to look into doula work. She has a passion for equipping and encouraging women through pregnancy, birth, and through the postpartum period.
A Scripture Brenna has found applicable and encouraging in her own life is:
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
