Birth Banter: An Interview with Birth Doula, Rebecca Mercurio


I had the privilege of interviewing the Buffalo-area birth doula, Rebecca Mercurio of Whole Nine Wellness recently to discuss her work as a birth-worker. Rebecca  also offers massage and yoga services in the Buffalo area. Check out her bio, you'll certainly be impressed with the unique training and background that she brings to her offerings. 

Amongst many things, she shared with me how doula work is akin to being a Sherpa, and I was blown away with this meaningful analogy. We dig into her background a bit, and she shares the experience that brought her to doula work, an experience that certainly could have easily turned her away from her currently practice permanently. 

We also delve into her interest in anatomy and how her practice as a massage therapist informs the way she attends birth, and we ended with the three important tips she offers pregnant women, her golden nuggets of wisdom that you do not want to miss! 

This interview is rife poignant points and insights. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I enjoyed talking with Rebecca.
