PCD(DONA), Certified Postpartum Doula
Joan Durham is a certified postpartum doula and a mom to 3 sons born in the late '60's. Joan breastfeed all three of her children and through that experience discovered her passion for the art of breastfeeding. In 1969 she became a La Leche Leauge leader (LLL) and started a chapter in Tulsa, OK. Joan remained active with LLL until 1975.
After raising her own kids and and between 1998 and 2007 nurturing five grandchildren, Joan felt that she wanted to extend her care to the community outside her own circle and support families who need a loving nurturing guide. In 2005 She started the journey to become a Postpartum Doula and share with new families her experience and wealth of informative support. She supported many families as a postpartum doula and looks forward to growing along with the LA families as a "nurturing nana.
