Announcing the sweet Ava Mackenzie, born May 18, 2019 to proud parents Jessica and Jim

I would say determined is an understatement when trying to explain how committed Jessica and Jim were to their VBAC. After a traumatic cesarean with their son, this couple went the distance to ensure a vaginal birth with their daughter. They had already overcame a two year struggle to get pregnant, surely this was the easy part. Right? Jessica did her research after her cesarean. She learned all about natural birth and our current birth practices. When she finally got pregnant, she set up her birth team. She found a doctor who would support her VBAC, hired me as her doula, and attended our Birthing From Within Classes with Chris. She practiced Spinning Babies and even got her little girl to

Ping Pong labor! Welcome baby Ezekiel

Ezekiel's birth announcement was written by Emily, our fantastic doula with a wonderful sense of humor. Emily is a mother of 6, and when she’s not doulaing or deepening her faith at church, you’ll find her joy riding on her Harley. Have you ever played a game of ping pong? Notice how the ball never stays in one place very long? This labor reminded me of a ping pong game. Let me explain, from the moment Sherrelle and Dajian walked into Health Park Hospital she took on the role of a ping pong ball and was bounced from one position to another.

Induction?! I don't think so! Welcome to the world little Elvy Mae, born 5/1/19

Elvy's birth announcement was written by Emily, our fantastic doula with a wonderful sense of humor. Emily is a mother of 6, and when she’s not doulaing or deepening her faith at church, you’ll find her joy riding on her Harley. We join Shannon and Marc as they celebrate the arrival of their petite and perfect little Elvy Mae Aldridge, born weighing 5lb 9oz and 19 inches long. She made her debut at practically the same time as her scheduled induction, May 1st at 5:30 a.m. This sweet little bundle had an estimated due date of May 20th, 2019. Shannon and Marc's care provider was concerned that baby might be on the small side and scheduled an induction to deliver early. Sometimes babies who are

Well-loved baby girl makes her debut in Naples to her ecstatic mom Lisa! Welcome baby Freya 4.25.19

Today's birth announcement was written by our birth doula, Tara. Tara is our Naples area doula and is a quite a natural at this doula thing! Tara is a mom of two boys and one pup, with her background in social work. When I first met Lisa at her home for our initial doula consult, I immediately admired and respected her. Here was a determined woman who knew what she wanted and went after it. (She also had a great sense of humor and is British, what’s not to like?) Lisa had decided she was ready to have a child and she wasn’t going to let the fact that she hadn’t met her life partner stop her. She went through months of treatments and tests and her family and friends supported her every step o
