Episode 32: ‘Birth Worker Feature’ with Samantha Mahon

Samantha Mahon wears many hats- she is a the owner of ‘Sacred Bee Doula‘ and in addition to being certified doula, placenta encapsulation specialist, sacred pregnancy instructor, esthetician, and USAF veteran,  she is also a local beekeeper. It was such fun talking to her, and I am excited to share her unique and inspiring interview with you all!

Moment of Struggle

Rather than one particular moment, Samantha shares the struggle she faces in being a military spouse when it comes to relocating, and having to re-establish her business every few years.

“I was meant to be right here, right now”

When one of her clients is rushed off to the OR after giving birth, Samantha learns just how valued her presence was not only for the mother, but for the birth partner as well.
