After years of program management, health disparities research, and community advocacy, Bianca Marie answered her personal calling to become a mom and full-spectrum doula, a motherhood transformational coach, and a doula business coach. She is also founder of Blooming Mamas Wellness Institute - an organization providing trauma counseling and health education for parents, as well as doula services to uplift clients across the country. Bianca Marie holds a Bachelor’s degree in women’s studies and pubic health, and an MBA in healthcare administration. We talk about Bianca Marie’s traumatic birth experience, and how she helps families heal from similar situations to go on to have healthy trauma-free births. Bianca Marie also gives valuable insights on virtual support for families during the pandemic, as well as business tips for doulas.
