About me

Congratulations on your growing family! My name is Inga Goodwin. I am a Christian childbirth educator, doula, and fertility awareness health coach. My burden is to empower parents-to-be with the knowledge, tools, and support they need to optimize fertility, birth safely, and get more sleep with a newborn! More about me? I am a work-at-home, home-schooling mom of 2. I birthed one of my babies at home and the other at the hospital. I enjoy composting, bird watching, and gardening for pollinators. Having an engineering degree has driven me to seek evidenced-based, practical solutions for my birthing and fertility clients. In all that I do, I stand in awe of our great Creator and make sure I approach my work prayerfully. If that resonates with you, take advantage of my free Birth Ready Check-up call service!

Newborn Sleep Success Online Class
It's true - when babies are born, they are supposed to eat around the clock every 2 hours! But, by 3 to 4 months of age, they can consolidate their sleep to 8 to 12 hours at night. How do you get there? Let me show you the way with my Newborn Sleep Success online course. This no-cry program is about establishing sustainable routines that gently and naturally transition your little one to sleeping through the night when they are ready. More specifically, in this program you will: 1.) Understand how to meet your baby's needs and cries 2.) Discover important principles for sustainable sleep 3.) Learn an EASY routine that will guide your little one's day and night without a clock or schedule. This online class is 3 sessions and includes email, phone, and text support. This course is helpful to take before birth and anytime within the first 6 months of life.

Working with Inga has been amazing! From our first encounter, I was very pleased. Her demeanor and fact based presentations truly made me feel comfortable from day one. Being able to understand and effectively track my hormone levels has been very beneficial for me. Inga’s open door policy is truly what I have appreciated the MOST. I’m able to text or call Inga and she is readily available to assist and answer any question I may need clarity on. She has a TRUE passion for her work and exhibits this with each encounter. I look forward to continuing my services and working with her.

Inga has been such a pleasure to work with during my journey to and through pregnancy. I first met with her to help me conceive. She helped me assess the key factors supporting fertility and accurately track my progress. She was clear, knowledgeable and ultimately helped me achieve my goal of pregnancy!! I continue to work with her for birthing classes and recommendations to support a healthy pregnancy and positive birth experience and she’s been great! She’s responsive, supportive and a true professional! I highly recommend you connect with her if you are trying to conceive!

My husband and I decided to hire a Christian birth doula for many reasons: we wanted the Spiritual, physical and emotional support provided by a doula at our birth – and leading up to it. Made the entire experience so positive and would highly recommend Inga. The support that was provided made me feel much more comfortable and confident through my journey into motherhood. Her coaching and follow up was consistent, caring, and compassionate.

Inga is incredible! I cannot say enough how patient, reassuring, insightful, and helpful she has been during my process of trying to conceive. I highly recommend her services. She is very much in tune with trying to create a genuine bond with her client, being transparent and being up-to-date on everything on the medical and mental health end of things. I plan to reach out to her in the future. Thank you so much Inga, I am grateful for you!
