About Us

Hello, my name is Petra , but I like to be called Shama.

I was born and raised is Czech Republic where I studied to be a pediatric nurse and worked 7 years at Pediatric Plastic Surgery & Dept of Burns, taking care of pediatric patients.When I came to USA in 1992 to travel, somehow I fell in love with this beautiful country and I remain here today.

In 1996 I started to work at Vail Valley Medical Center/ OB Dept. as a CNA and later a Unit Coordinator. In 2004 my love for pediatric nursing brought me to teaching Childbirth classes and in 2007 I started Labor Doula training and Postpartum Doula training in 2009.

I believe that each labor and birth is a unique and miraculous experience. I also believe that there is more than one good way to have a baby and that parents should have the proper tools available for effective communication between caregivers and

parents to be.

My background includes my love for natural medicine, pediatric RN in Czech Republic, Childbirth and Lactation Education certification through CAPPA, Labor and Postpartum Doula certification through CAPPA, Neonatal Resuscitation certificate through NRP, CPR certification through American Heart Association, and my experience working with physicians of CMM at Vail Valley Medical Center.
