My name is Michelle Lester Bell. I have been working professionally as a full spectrum birth and postpartum doula since 2007 (DONA trained), and also have worked as a nurse's aide and midwife's aide throughout this time. I currently live in Fayetteville Arkansas, and I have worked with "non-traditional" families since the beginning of my journey as a birth worker. (It helps that I am queer and have a relatively queer family.) I have been lucky enough to help families and individuals of all types, and have learned there are many assumptions made throughout health care that aren't quite right. Some families have multiple spouses, others have people who are more than one gender (or have no gender at all), and just because you have a uterus does not make you a woman. I firmly believe my job is to help be the island of calm, to reach out and pull people up and let them catch their breath. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you are looking for a birth or postpartum doula that is trans* friendly or if you have any questions. Email me at Merriemelodyxx@gmail.com.

My name is Vera Casey. I am DONA trained, a lactation educator, and am experienced in supporting trans birth, alternative familes and surrogates. I serve the San Diego and Orange County, CA. As a doula, I do my very best to support the birthing journey. Birth is intense, and many things can come up (mostly emotional, some physical) that feel bigger than what we can face at the time. By offering unwavering confidence in your ability to birth your baby, and constant physical and emotional support, not only for you, but your partner and family as well, I contribute to everyone's sense of well being. The sense that this birth is a normal, natural process, and while challenging, it is certainly achievable. Having someone who absolutely believes in you is crucial to any challenge, especially birth. Ideally, a baby is created by two people who love each other, and this child, and the birth experience should be as intimate and fulfilling as the relationship that brought them there. I do my best to support that experience, while not getting in the way of it. I can be reached at Vrlevitt@pacbell.net or by phone at (714)222-5191.

I'm Annie Kocher, a Certified Full-spectrum Doula (DTI) and Lactation Consultant. As a birth worker and advocate in Berlin, I try to embody inclusivity in my speech and actions. The families I serve often find me because they are looking for support in their exquisitely diverse experiences of birth, breast- or chest- feeding, family structures, identities, relationships, housing, and needs. Being a queer person connects me from the heart with queer experiences of life in all forms. I take my role as an advocate seriously, trusting in the autonomy of my clients, listening intently to which birth rights have meaning for them, and supporting their ability to birth with these rights. I do this by holding space for confidential conversation, listening, attempting to make no assumptions, and using non-violent communication strategies with other care providers to increase the safety of any birthing environment. You can get in touch via my website, www.arkdoula.com, and Facebook page, www.facebook.com/arkdoula.

I'm Alexandra Garcia, an NYC-based postpartum doula pursuing my DONA certification. My approach is inspired by my training in Traditional East Asian Medicine. In this tradition, the postpartum period is seen not just as a recovery period, but as an opportunity to optimize health as the body realigns for parenthood.

Together we support parents in reaching their postpartum goals (ie, restore uterus size, increase/decrease lactation, recover from surgery). If you chose to work with us, I will provide one free informational visit during your pregnancy. Postpartum, Christopher will visit you for an herbal consultation; I will be on call to answer questions for up to 4 weeks; and I will come to your home up to 3 times weekly to offer healing meals and provide standard doula services. You can find out more about our practice at www.GarciaAndPeacock.com.

Taryn Goodwin, located in Oklahoma City, is a Student Midwife and Apprentice, Certified Monitrice/Midwifery Assistant (OMA), Birth Doula CD(DONA), APPA-C Placenta Arts Specialist, Association of Placenta Arts Co-Founder, Dancing For Birth Certified Instructor, and Lactation Counselor. Taryn is also the owner of The Thrive Mama Collective, Oklahoma's premier birth collective in the Plaza District. Throughout the pregnancy and births of my children I developed an immense passion for pregnancy and birth. I believe that birth is a sacred event that deserves to be nurtured and respected. I also believe that birth for most women is not a medical crisis, but instead a inherently safe, holistic event. I trust that women are born with the inner wisdom and strength to birth their babies without intervention. However, I also know when to appreciate medical interventions and pain medicine in labor when they are necessary or requested. As part of your birth team, my intention is to help you idenfity your own birth wisdom and provide support and resources to help you have your ideal birth. Contact me at Taryn@SpiritedDoula.com.

Hello, my name is Heather Lobitz and I am a full-spectrum doula offering support to families in the Portland / Vancouver metro area. As a DONA certified birth doula and DONA trained postpartum doula, I provide open-minded and open-hearted support for families before, during, and after birth. I passionately believe that when people feel empowered during the birth of their children, they can begin parenthood with joy and confidence. I foster this empowerment by meeting the physical, emotional, and informational needs of the laboring person and their support team so they can make positive birth memories together. My approach to doula work honors the truth that there is no “right” way to give birth, only ways that support the specific needs, wants, and intentions of my clients. This respect for the diversity of birth was gained through working with a variety of families and situations including: single mothers, LGBT couples, multicultural families, families using reproductive technology, natural birth, medicated birth, waterbirth, spontaneous labor, labor induction, planned and unplanned cesarean birth, midwife-attended births, and physician-attended births. If you are interested in exploring the possibility of having me as your doula, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

My name is Erica Angert. I am a certified postpartum doula living in Richmond (certified through DONA, Doulas of North America). I'm straight and married, but my dad was gay and I have always felt particularly drawn to fighting for equality for sexual minorities. I've worked with three lesbian couples in the years since I started doula work, and I am eager to work with all types of families and help them feel supported in the unique ways they need support after having a baby. Postpartum doulas help with recovery from childbirth, breast/bottle feeding and infant care, processing the wonderful but crazy changes that come with having a new baby, seeing the whole family (including any older children) through this transition to their new roles, and doing light housework such as laundry and dishes. If you'd like to know more about my services and how I can help you, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, call 225-978-1507, or look for me at Facebook.com/EricatheDoula.
