Original Birth Doula Services

Original Birth doula services are grounded in the biodynamic model of childbirth developed by Birthingway College of Midwifery in Portland, OR. This model incorporates philosophies from many other methods such as Bradley, Birthing From Within, Hypnobirth and Lamaze but always keeps the focus on the fact that childbirth is a natural and necessary part of human life and keeping the focus on the mother. As a doula, I have the privilege of being invited by families to share in this intimate time so that they can be fully present at their birth and have the support that they need in order to let the birth process unfold naturally. I help parents educate and empower themselves to make decisions based on fact and not on fear and to create a safe space where mothers and their partners can focus on each other and connect and grow stronger as a couple. My husband and I live in Portland, OR with our two children, Kate and Jameson. We had a hospital birth with our daughter in 2006 and a waterbirth at home with our son in 2009. These two unique births have transformed me as a woman and mother, reaffirming my passion for birth and helping other women on their birth journeys. I am certified in the biodynamic model of childbirth through Birthingway College of Midwifery since 2007 and as a full-circle doula through the International Center for Traditional Childbearing since 2008. I am also a volunteer for Nursing Mothers Counsel of Oregon and waterbirth certified through Legacy hospital to better assist moms who desire a waterbirth. I love to read, knit, crochet, watch movies and spend time with family and friends. But most importantly, I love helping mothers achieve a healthy and happy birth experience.
