I am passionate about everything birth related. My goal is to provide you a safe, nonjudgmental space. I will work with you to make your birth as you want it to be. I can assist with preparing your body for birth, the actual birth itself, and postpartum care. Postpartum care can include breast-feeding, mental health, checks, nutrition, and much more.
I have always been drawn to newborns, infants, children of all ages, and their families. There is a richness in family life that always brings about such a great sense of wonder and awe. There is a way a baby or toddler looks back at you and you know they don’t care what color your hair is, how many wrinkles you have, if you are overweight, underweight, or have zero sense of style. They just know how to LOVE. It is that unconditional love and trust in a baby’s eyes that instilled a strong desire in my heart to protect this innocence and trust by providing families with care providers they could trust. Care that is always gentle, loving, slowly paced, curious, and joyful. We want to bring this into your home.

I’m Paige and I’m a mom of 3. I spent most of my young adult life working with people with developmental disabilities. After that, I received my Sign Language Interpreting degree from Saint Paul College and worked with Deaf/Hard of Hearing folks before becoming a stay-at-home mom. I have spent the last several years raising my kids. It hasn’t always been easy, but it’s my favorite job yet! Now it’s time for me to do what I really love: postpartum work! I have always been passionate about families, pregnancy, birth, babies, and postpartum. Parents deserve so much more support and education as they are growing their families. Many people tend to focus only on pregnancy and preparing for birth, but they don’t spend time preparing for postpartum. My goal is to help families be more prepared and supported for all that comes when adding a new baby to the family. I want families to have a smoother and more peaceful postpartum experience. I am based out of South Saint Paul, Minnesota and am currently serving the greater Twin Cities area.
As a doula, my practice focuses on providing personalized support + information access to birthing people + their families throughout pregnancy, birth + the postpartum journey. My services are designed to complement + enhance the care provided by the birthing person's medical team. I use evidence-based strategies to help my clients prepare both physically + mentally for birth, while also fostering a sense of connection + community.
Rhonda is a birth doula, childbirth educator, doula trainer & mentor, BIPOC birthworker connector and pelvic steam facilitator. She refers to herself as a lactation champion because of her passion for helping families feed their babies. Serving families in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, Rhonda loves helping parents realize their strength and ability.

Her career has included working as an after-school program director, healthy relationships/sexual health educator, community connector for an elementary school, homeless shelter co-facilitator and leading teen mission trips.

I enjoy working with clients, families, teen parents, diverse populations, and community organization to help develop ways to tap into the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well being. I am a Certified Doula (8 + years), Certified Lactation Specialist, Mentor, Yoga Instructor, and Motivational Speaker. I would love to answer any more questions you may have otherwise I'm available for a free consultation. I look forward to hearing from you.
"Most of us did not learn when we were young that our capacity to be self-loving would be shaped by the work we do and whether that work enhances our well-being." – bell hooks. This is a quote that has stuck with me as I explore my career path. Becoming a doula is something I did not follow through with until the murder of George Floyd. Seeing the striking images of pregnant Black mothers protesting around the country ignited the fire in me to finally complete my training to become a certified perinatal educator - meaning I can provide childbirth education, prenatal support, labor and delivery support, lactation support, and newborn care support. But my calling to birth work started on the day I was born with my mother being hospitalized for 2 months postpartum from an avoidable mistake during an emergency c-section. I value empathy, collaboration, and being open minded. As a doula, I am intentional about serving my clients in a way that supports self-empowerment, so they feel they have all the information they feel they need to make the best decision for them and their baby/babies. I do not shy away from vulnerability, and I believe this allows me to have relationships with my clients built on trust.

Hello and Congratulations on your new arrival! I've been a birth doula since 2018 through the organization DONA. Every birth I have assisted with has been a beautiful and a learning experience for me. I feel blessed to be a part of this special moment in the lives of my clients. My practice provides you and your partner with continuous emotional and physical support. You are in charge, but a doula can assist with you staying in charge, especially in a hospital setting. Doula's are skilled at helping to alleviate the fear factor of giving birth. Every mother deserves a doula, and I hope you would consider me to be yours. Best wishes! Rhonda
Terri Schelkoph (CD)DONA, HCHD My Name is Terri, and I am a trained birth doula through DONA International, A Heavenly Welcome Practitioner. I currently reside in the south metro with my husband Jon for 19 years and our six delightfully boisterous children. Through the birth of my own children, I recognized the value of knowing my options, feeling educated in the decisions I was making, and being empowered to start my journey of parenthood. I understood that a new mom can pendulum swing between feeling confident and secure one moment, and self doubting and and insecure the next. I have a passion for being a mama’s biggest cheerleader, encouraging them to be who they were designed to be. As a Mama of Six, my experiences inspired me to educate, serve and encourage other mamas during the beauty and struggle of pregnancy and childbirth. Doula Mama is the name my children picked out, and it is quite fitting 🙂 I love Jesus, my husband Jon, and my children. I am passionate about helping other women have the best pregnancy, labor and delivery as possible. Outside of birth work you can find me with my nose in a good book, drinking copious amounts of coffee, homeschooling my children, enjoying sweet friendships, watching Vikings games with my husband, or serving at my wonderful church. Additional Certifications and Trainings: Advanced VBAC trained doula through The VBAC link, and a Hypnobabies® Childbirth Hypnosis Doula and am trained in using the tens unit.
Hi, I'm Anne! I'm an RN who has worked in OB and/or academia (NA, LPN, RN programs) for over 35 years, and an IBCLC since 2009. My passion is for helping parents to have the support, knowledge, and resources for feeding success, however they choose to feed their little one. I value keeping parents in the drivers seat, providing knowledge and skill from the many lactation courses, conferences, and workshops I've attended. I pride myself on keeping current and providing robust resources, so that after I leave you feel confident in being able to implement the plan we developed. There is never one "right" way to feed or parent your little. Together we will come up with the plan that is right for you and your baby. Common topics covered in consults include prenatal lactation consults (first time breast milk feeders or those who had issues with previous littles), prenatal breastfeeding 1:1 classes, sore nipples, engorgement, latch difficulties, assessments for tethered oral tissues (ties), suck training pre- and post- tie releases, pumping issues (flange sizes, checking how pump is working, etc.), low milk supply, oversupply, plugged ducts/blebs, and bottling difficulties. I have a kind, calm, gentle approach that accommodates what baby is telling us. I am an LGBTQI+ ally, and have helped lesbian, transgender, and gay parents with feeding issues. I'd love to connect!

I love documenting you and your family but I especially love documenting your birth story. I am a certified birth photographer and I also have my degree in digital photography. There is so much magic in the room when bringing your baby earth side and I want to be the one to help capture it for you.

My background is as a licensed health professional within the field of occupational therapy, so it will surprise no one that client-centered care, coupled with the provision of evidence-based information, is my default orientation. You’ll hear a lot about my passion for comprehensive women’s health throughout the human lifespan, in all its beauty and complexity. Research shows that regardless of culture or country of origin, women who are supported, who are held by their communities, who take advantage of educational opportunities and family connections -- who are given access to the things they need -- are healthier. Reproductive health is a keystone of women’s overall wellbeing, and I view birth education, combined with perinatal support, to be a key factor in setting women up for long, happy, healthy, well-lived lives. I bring a wide lens to birthwork and aim to provide support for the entire childbearing year. Above all, I have a heart for maternal mental health. People need to talk about mental health as much as they talk about physical health. We’re getting there as a society, but we’re not there yet.

As a parent myself, I know how overwhelming it can be to navigate pregnancy, birth, and parenting. My goal is always to help you fully understand your options, confidently make your choice, and effectively communicate your needs to those around you. I believe that the development of these self-advocacy skills will serve you for the rest of your life. I work in a doula partnership with Meredith Kramer, and when clients choose to work with us, you draw from the experience, knowledge, and perspective of two doulas. We operate as a partnership, rather than the traditional primary doula + backup model, so you always have someone familiar available to support you even in the case of a doula illness, family emergency, or another client's birth. We are jointly filled with purpose when our clients feel heard and supported in their decisions, and we want to celebrate the fact that you made the choice that is right for you. All love and support—no judgment.
At Lullaby Nest, we believe that the first five years of a child’s life are fundamentally important for their development so we work closely with families to provide guidance and education while also being respectful and understanding of diverse parenting styles and comfort levels around the sleep training process. We use a holistic approach as we learn about the whole child in order to create unique and appropriate plans. We then walk closely alongside each family until they’ve reached their sleep goals." ~Lullaby Nest Team
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!
