Doula of the Month – Evie Showalter

Evie Showalter is a wonderful DONA international trained Birth Doula who received her training with one of the longest practicing doulas in the Kansas City area. She also recently completed Postpartum Doula training with the Childbirth and Postpartum Professional Association and is excited to be able to offer that continued care to her clients. 
 
Evie has spent much of her life caring for people as a registered nurse and after retiring just a few years ago, she began searching for new ways to serve others. With her nurturing nature and a background in healthcare being a doula seemed like a great fit and, although birth work has been a completely new experience for her, she finds it to be an exciting and fulfilling venture. 
 
Her goal as a birth and postpartum doula is to be able to care for and nurture mothers and babies and give them the tools they need to be the best they can be while letting go of the idea that they need to be perfect. 
 
Evie has three daughters of her own, two sons-in-law and two wonderful grandchildren. She feels blessed to be a mother, a wife, a nurse, and now a doula!
