WHAT IS A POSTPARTUM DOULA?
A postpartum doula is a person who provides emotional and physical support as you prepare for baby, and after baby is born. They are not a medical professional. They do not do any medical procedures.
They help with light household chores, cooking, and baby care.

Schedule a free one hour consult with me today. We can chat on the phone, via Zoom, or meet for coffee near where you live.
DO YOU OFFER GROUP CLASSES OR WORKSHOPS?
Birth Boot Camp classes can be done privately or in a group setting. They can be done in person or virtually with a Zoom follow up with me.
WHAT IF I CAN'T AFFORD YOUR SERVICES?
I can help you find ways to make hiring Birth With Grace work for you. From using a HSA, having a money tree at a shower, using an installment plan, or having a yard sale!
A sliding scale is available for qualified clients.
ARE CLASSES ONLY FOR LOW RISK BIRTH?
Nope! There is a class for everyone and for every kind of birth. There is a class for hospital birth, homebirth, and birth center birth. We talk through it all.
WHAT TRAINING DO YOU HAVE?
I began doula training in 2018. I read a lot of books, watched childbirth videos, childbirth classes, attended support meetings, and filled out a lot of worksheets. In 2019 I decide to also train as a childbirth educator. I read even more complicated books and continued with the above. I also attended two births that I observed. Finally I attended an in person work shop for 6 days and passed a certifying test. I officially became a Birth Boot Camp Instructor and Doula!
