My name is LaKayshu Burks. I have always had a love for babies and helping others. Because of this, I decided to train with Doulas of North America in May and June of 2020 to support families during pregnancy and childbirth. After finishing the training, I realized that I had made one of the best decisions I could have possibly made. The information and knowledge gained from the training was life-changing. I connected and bonded with so many other birth workers that were also starting their journeys as doulas. 

One of the things I enjoy the most about being a doula is providing people with information and evidence that will allow them to make choices that are best for them and their family. Being able to be a Count the Kicks ambassador is just another way in which I can raise awareness and present findings to help families and help save babies. I am so excited to connect with others across the state who have the same passion as me.
