My name is Pascale. I was born and raised in the beautiful island of Haiti. My family and I migrated to the US as political refugees when I was 12 years old. From then on, I taught myself how to speak English by using a dictionary.
My passion is seeing women live long, healthy lives. I am an advocate for women’s health and my lifelong goal is to bridge the gap in health disparities.
With my Doula certification, I will provide services to low- income, marginalized women in order to improve their birth / postpartum outcomes. I am deeply concerned that African-American, Alaskan, and Native American women are three times more likely to die from pregnancy-related causes than white women. If I can offer my knowledge and services to these particular demographics, then I will see one less statistic.
Furthermore, I am very passionate about education. Nelson Mandela once said, “Education is the most powerful tool which we can use to change the world.” This is a philosophy that I live by.
I will use my Doula Certification to offer affordable pre and postnatal workshops for pregnant women. I never want finances to be the biggest barrier.
My long term goal is also to provide maternal services in my native country.
My greatest fulfillment is placing myself at the service of others and what better way to start then with the carriers of life – women.
