Houston Central Doulas Team Building Exercise:
Our team is passionate about recognizing your roles in your life. We know that you’re having a new baby, or you wouldn’t be here. But you are more than baby’s parent. We honor the you that is you when you are alone. The relationships you have in your social life. The special relationship between you and your partner. The relationships you have with your colleagues. All of those roles are important, and they look different from day to day.
Our owner, Moriah Burke, is passionate about providing seamless care to families in Houston. When we tell you that we have a main team, we want you to know that we really are a team. Not just a pile of doulas thrown together. We actively participate in team meetings and collaborative care. We take the time to honor the doula in each of us. We also take time to see each other as unique women, and not just colleagues. And we each have a role within HCD that elevates the company.
In that vein, as the owner, I did not want to introduce each doula based on what I think of her. Nor did I want her to write about herself. I asked each doula to write about their team members in order to provide you with the beginnings of a 360 degree view of who that person is. Sometimes, when we talk about ourselves, we worry what others will think of us. There are ways where we dial back, or are slow to share our strengths.
I wanted to share our strengths. Compiled together, this is a gift from me to the team. A place where they can come to celebrate their strengths. and a place for you to begin to meet them.
The “rubric” below represents how each doula would describe themselves as a doula, how they present over coffee, and who they are within our team.
