Postpartum Doula

Michelle

My name is Michelle. I have been supporting new moms and families for nearly 25 years. I’m a trained postpartum doula through Dona International and CPR certified. When I was a new mother, I had a vision of how things would work. I would return to my corporate job after 6 weeks and continue pumping for another 6 weeks. When you hold that little person and look into their eyes for the first time, it changes everything! And so the journey began, supporting families by providing services for the smoothest transition of life with a new baby.

After school, I found my true passion and calling when I discovered the wonderful world of birthworkers. Working with young families has allowed me to connect with women through one of the most important experiences and transitions of their lives. I found my true passion in birth work, by working as a doula and helping young families welcome their newest members.

BIRTH & Postpartum Doula

Victoria

My journey with birth work has no real beginning. I have always been fascinated by the process of creating life and curious about how it all works. This led me to many years of reading and researching. When the first of my friends became pregnant, I found myself with more knowledge than I had realized I had, and I was full of excitement to assist in her process. Having worked as a yoga instructor for many years, I developed a passion for connecting deeply to our bodies, holding space for myself and others, and guiding people to find empowerment within themselves. The decision to become trained as a doula felt like a natural step forward. Now I am beyond grateful to be doing this work and sharing in such an incredibly sacred time of life. I want every person giving birth to know that you have choices, you have support in those choices, and you deserve respect through your birth journey.

Postpartum Doula

Kelly

As a mother myself, I empathize with and comprehend the myriad needs of a new mother bringing home her baby. I specialize in facilitating a smooth transition into this new chapter for the entire family. Providing an additional set of nurturing hands creates a conducive environment for bonding with your baby. Understanding the significance of tailoring my approach to meet the individual needs of each new mother and her family, I excel in creating personalized schedules, routines, and fostering a healthy environment. Recognizing the importance of rest for mothers and the need for reassurance as they gain confidence, I strive to provide unwavering support.

Postpartum Doula

Caitlin

As a birth doula of 7.5 years, seeing over 200 babies come in to the world, I’ve fallen more in love with this job with every family I support. I have a passion for educating expectant families and supporting them through their entire prenatal period, labor and birth, and postpartum. It’s a blessing to be able to be with families during such an intimate moment in their lives. Getting to witness parents become parents to their new little ones, transforming from the people they were before walking in to their birth space and getting to witness the miracle of childbirth is possibly one of the best things a human can experience aside from becoming a parent and building a family, themselves.
