Hannah is a local doula who has attended 4 births so far. 1 home birth, 2 hospitals and 1 twin c-section.

“I have a friend who helped me so much during my own pregnancies just out of the kindness of her heart. She eventually became a doula and her stories about births and experience helping ladies learn how to breastfeed made me realize it was my calling. For as long as I can remember I have always wanted to watch births. I remember when I was pregnant with my first baby waking up in the middle of the night to our family cat giving birth on my pillow. My husband was completely disgusted and annoyed that it interrupted his sleep, but I was excited– and those kittens. <3 ” Hannah

Hannah received her doula certification from Heartland College. She is also a Licensed Master Social Worker. At her day job, she is a therapist at an academy for abused and neglected kids in DCS custody. Fun fact: She is also an ordained wedding officiant!

Hannah does both in hospital and in home deliveries, and admits that she does have a preference for in home because they are so much more personal and she feels like she is able to help more there.

She also provides postpartum doula services that includes breastfeeding help, safe sleep education, check0ins for mental health related issues such as PPD.

“Having a doula who is also a therapist has its perks. I can also aid in family adjustment to having a new member. I am available for other things case by case as needed. I also offer phone based lactation advice and encouragement.”

Hannah is a “mom-led” doula, meaning that her style is prompted by what the mom needs/wants. She is a big advocate for home/natural births and will always promote baby friendly birthing style. She also highly encourages and assists with breastfeeding.

“I recognize that I am new to the doula life, but it just means that I am still charging lower rates- and all the book knowledge is fresh on my brain. I have a rate schedule based on what services you would want included in your package. I offer payment plans as well. “
