Hi! I'm Bria. I'm a wife and a mama to three little humans, foodie, traveler, and outdoors-lover. I'm also a birth doula and Lamaze childbirth educator. My interest in birth work began after my second baby was born. My passion is in supporting people in their journey to parenthood. Everyone wants to hold the baby.... I'm here to hold the parent[s]! After hearing countless testimonies from birthing people who wish they'd known more before giving birth, I decided to become a doula. My goal is to INFORM, ASSIST, and EMPOWER pregnant people, so that they go into their birth feeling confident and supported. As a doula, I support all birth. Whether you're planning a home birth in a tub, or a C-section in a hospital, I'm here for it. The most important thing to me is that we develop mutual trust, and that you feel comfortable with me by your side. My personality is pretty type-A, and I love numbers and evidence. One of my goals as a doula and childbirth educator is to make sure my clients always know their options, and understand the risks/benefits of the decisions they make. My childbirth ed course is designed to teach you ALL of your birthing options - not just your hospital's "policies". I'm excited to connect with you, and work with you during this lifechanging time!

My partner and I are so grateful to be working with Bria as our birth doula, and we've now taken several childbirth education classes with her. Bria's courses are incredibly informative and her teaching style is engaging and realistic; she makes a Zoom course into a fun time! We appreciate that Bria shares all of the stats/facts and provides the framework for us to make the best decisions for our individual family. We leave her classes feeling more confident and would recommend them to anyone who wants to feel empowered during their journey to parenthood. The postpartum workshop, in particular, is not to be missed!

Bria is an amazing teacher and doula! She makes learning fun and engaging. My husband and I both walked away feeling informed about what to expect before, during and after birth. I can’t say enough about how amazing any/all of her classes are!
