Hillery Potter, BBCD & BBCI

Doula and Childbirth Educator

The first time I drew a picture of what I wanted to be when I grew up, it was of a "baby nurse." I didn't know what that meant, or how to get there. I just knew in my child heart that I wanted to take care of babies, and later, mamas as well.  

Once I became a mom myself, in my last year of college, I saw what was lacking in hospital and postpartum care.  I began supporting friends and family when they added to their families.  

I now live in NE Tennessee and I am a homeschooling mom to four amazing kids.  Currently ages from 9-18.  I am married to Joey, my high school sweetheart. This year we celebrate 20 years of marriage.

In 2018 I felt the call to become a certified Doula.  I was certified with Birth Boot Camp in 2019 as both a birth doula and an instructor, and have been serving families  ever since.  

I have a special place in my heart for moms considered high risk or complex, having been there myself.  I have attended unmedicated and easy births, all the way to complex intervention cesarean  births with NICU babies.  I give 100% of myself to each of these families, supporting them each in their unique needs.  And I love every minute!
