Baby Colton Reed- Water born moments earlier
I am the mom to 3 incredible, grown, sons. My first son was a traumatic birth, by unnecessary cesarean, at 38 weeks following a failed induction. My next two sons were successful VBACs.
I trained with DONA to become a birth doula in February 2003; to date I’ve had the honor of participating in 1,000+ births at hospitals, homes, and birth centers. I am also a Childbirth Educator. As your Doula your Childbirth Class is at no additional cost to you. The class includes everything from the anatomy of labor to postpartum and breastfeeding basics. I also offer Placenta Encapsulation and Lactation Support, postpartum.
Ten years after beginning my journey in birth work, I fulfilled a lifelong dream, and went to “The Farm” in Tennessee. There I trained with the nation’s most respected midwives. I received my certification in neonatal resuscitation and also became a certified midwife’s assistant. Over the last seven years; in addition to serving as a Doula I've had the opportunity to serve several local midwives and many families as a Midwife Assistant.
