Because it takes a village to raise a child & grow as a mother.

My Role

As a labor doula I am committed to helping women to have the birth experience they choose! I am a strong support for the partner as well and provide the guidance and tools so that they can support their birthing partner.  As an integral part of a family’s birth team, I believe in keeping the birth room a calm and positive space for all.

As a postpartum doula I am there to support a family in EVERY way.  From helping families adjust to their new baby (or babies), I can teach, model care, support feeding including breastfeeding and guide a family to be more confident. I can also help with meal preparation, newborn care, household chores, sibling care, run any errands and so much more. Knowing exactly what a family needs and how to support them makes the process of adjusting with a new baby a positive one.

 

Hi, I am Shannon…

 I am a Phoenix-based Birth & Certified Postpartum Doula.

I have many years of experience and have completed multiple training’s and advanced workshops through DONA International and CAPPA.

As a true life-long learner, I continue to take classes, read any and all books and seek out podcasts and webinars to better equip myself in supporting ALL families.

One of my greatest joys in both birth and postpartum support is watching families become confident and empowered by their own strength. The transition of bringing their baby earthside and then transitioning into parenthood is so amazing and I feel truly honored to be part of this life experience.

Life & Passions

Aside from my vast training’s, I am a mother to 5 beautiful children with one being in heaven and 4 here on earth. I have been married to my best friend for 12 years and together we have 2 teenagers and a set of twins! Born and raised in Phx, AZ, I now live with my family in Queen Creek. Having always dreamed of working in the birth world and after having my own children, I came to realize that if I would have had a doula with me during my births, I could have had a better birth experience. I know now being a doula is one of my callings and absolutely love what I do! Taking great pride in serving women and families, I feels honored to walk beside each family during their birth and postpartum journey. I feel very blessed to have such a wonderful family who supports me so I can follow my dream of being a doula and serving women and families.
