My name is Bonnie Slater, and I’m the mother of two amazing children, a seasoned birth and postpartum doula, birth doula trainer and women’s relational leader.
I have had the honor of helping over 700 of families give birth and meet their new babies. From the tears of a new father to the cries of a newborn, I am forever in awe and humbled by the miracle of life. I have had the privilege of attending over 700 births in 12 different hospitals, birth centers and dozens of homes. The strength of women’s bodies and the empowerment that can arise through the process never ceases to amaze me.
In addition to practicing as a doula, I have worked in three ob-gyn/midwifery offices as a midwifery assistant. I have taken courses in psychology, nursing and have worked in end of life care. I study authentic relating and relational leadership and use those tools to connect with each unique family.
In 2020 I decided to blend my three favorite things—Birth, Maui and Connection. Doulas of Maui was born. Doulas of Maui is a birth and postpartum business as well as a birth doula training company. Trainings happen twice a year. Want to be a birth doula? Join the birth world on this magical island of Maui.
