I am a doula with an open and honest heart compelled by compassion to support birth parents and their families in the perinatal period. Doulas can best support those they have an understanding of and are culturally competent of and empathetic towards.
I have attended over 30 births in the past 5 years.I am a DONA and PALS certified birth doula. Many of my births have been open arms births. I believe the most successful support can come from those who surround a pregnant woman. I want a woman to feel as though she is being held in her birth…..totally supported so that she can move right into parenting without the difficulty of grieving an unsatisfactory birth.

Calming, supportive presence who believes in the power of pregnant people and families to make informed decisions and that healing starts from a place of trust and respect.

I am a 35 year old wife and mother of two who recently trained as a Birth Doula and is working towards certification.
My guiding philosophy in working with women and families is in discovering what a sense of safety looks like for them and reclaiming this connection to comfort and support that has been a principle in the childbearing process for all. I want to do everything I can to help parents in the community in achieving what they envision, the experience that gives them confidence and strength to raise their families independent and interconnected.

I am an experienced, loving Doula who offers free-of-charge doula services for qualifying families. It is vital to ensure that birthing parents and their families have access to providers such as doulas who have shared experience and backgrounds.
Serves: Seattle, South King County and Tacoma
I am a young, queer, mixed Black doula with an empathetic approach to this work that centers support and safety because our communities deserve deep and restorative care. Community-based doula support is important because experiences differ between groups, and families deserve to have their support person be someone who can understand their experiences and empathize with their concerns and fears. The ability for people of color to support and uplift our communities is one of the most important paths towards liberation because sharing experiences provides a level of comfort and familiarity that lends to caring for each other in deep and restorative ways *plays FUBU by Solange*
I have demonstrated my commitment to children and am passionate about serving their parents, who I believe can change the world. I think the most effective change occurs when communities are empowered and able to take care of their own. I’ve seen firsthand the effects of families being separated from each other or not having the support they need to take care of each other, and I believe the most important thing I can do is serve the families and children of my own communities. When parents have the support they need in pregnancy during their children’s first years they are able to build strong foundations for their children so those children can grow up and serve their own community.
Serves: Eastside, Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond, Sammamish Area
I’m a bilingual (Spanish) postpartum doula and I provide caring support for parents in the postpartum period. Chilbirth and the postpartum period is largely shaped by culture and our environment. Community-based doula is able to recognize the community needs of the family and better able to help when them during a very emotional and vulnerable time. This allows the doula to turn this experience into a positive and empowering one.
A herbalist and natural healer who is a trained birthing doula. I believe in the power of peer-to-peer support and in reaching out to pregnant women to provide doula services during the critical times of pregnancy, birth, and postpartum/early parenting.
