My Story

My name is Briana. I am passionate about supporting families and educating parents with evidence based information as they embark on their prenatal, birth, and postpartum journey. I follow the Gentle Birth method to assist families in achieving mindfulness and calm in their birth and beyond. I love helping families walk through birth in peace and understanding. I believe with every fiber of my body that birth is beautiful and empowering, and every family should feel supported and encouraged on this journey. 

 

As a mother of 5, each of my own pregnancies, births, and postpartum experiences transformed me and brought me closer to the path of becoming a doula and childbirth educator.  My first child was a cesarean birth and I’ve had four successful VBACs after that, both at the hospital and at home.  My desire to help others experience the beauty of birth was solidified through my own birth experiences. I absolutely love every moment of helping empower, support, and encourage families along their childbearing journey.

 

I feel honored to help empower and hold sacred space for families as they guide their newest member in love. I am honored to advocate for their needs so that they can focus on the beautiful transformation that is birth and parenthood. Please reach out and we can talk all about the dreams you have for your baby’s “first” birthday party.
