Grateful for TX Doula Movement

I plan to use my education from Texas Doula Movement to add as an additional service provided by my ministry.

“The education, resources, experiences, and shared expertise from this course has positioned me to create a foundation to assist, comfort, create and support my EOL patients and families.

My focused vision is to provide my patients with the peace of dying in salvation and unfinished affairs accomplished including paperwork and individual relationships and to create environments that patients and family members are able to be at ease in.

I am grateful for TX Doula Movement for this opportunity for learning.

Blessings in all endeavors!”

Pastor Shamaro Carter - Adkins, TX

“I elected the Texas Doula Movement, LLC as my source for obtaining a professional certification as an End-of-Life Doula . The Texas Doula Movement adopts and provides professional, respectful, and knowledgeable learning opportunities within their curriculums. In addition I choose the Texas Doula program because I'm a Texas resident who wishes to assist communities and their residents with respectful, courteous, and knowledgeable end of life plans and decisions.

I highly recommend the Texas Doula program to those seeking personal and/or professional opportunities which allows for expertise in supporting friends, family, and fellow humans in planning their journey towards transitioning from life to the hereafter as they wish, and with respect for their choices. ”

Doulas Make a Difference

“Anna is truly amazing, I know it isn't always easy in her line of work but she does it with such grace, love and compassion. My family has had the honor of working with her in our time of need and she definitely made it so much easier on my family.”

Amanda A., San Antonio, Texas

“What I want to do with my certification:

Sonja on Facebook said: “Ask 10 of your friends you trust to tell you what is your superpower or your God-given gift? “

One of my friends said because I live 1 Peter 4:10 (NIV) ... “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms”.

I want to live into that verse through service as an EOL Doula.”

Gwendolyn Mason, Missouri City, Texas

“I think that you guys are very helpful, realistic and have helped with my knowledge of this field a ton. I feel prepared to start.”

Helina F., Austin, Texas
