About me

Marnellie Bishop (she/her) is a certified birth and postpartum doula and childbirth educator. Marnellie has additional training as an Evidence Based Birth® Instructor and Hypnobabies® Hypno-Doula. She also serves the Portland, OR community as a board member and Director of Finance & Operations at Community Doula Alliance. Prior to pursuing her passion to support families on their perinatal journey, Marnellie completed a Bachelors degree in Business Administration and used her degree to help grow and sell her family’s printing company. As a 2nd generation immigrant to Filipino parents, Marnellie understands the intersectionality that many immigrant families face when it comes to identifying their parenting styles through the lens of their cultural background and today’s parenting values. Through her work as a community member, doula and childbirth educator, Marnellie seeks to help growing families feel empowered and confident in their unique journey through parenthood. Growing up in Pacific Northwest set deep roots for Marnellie and she is proud to call Portland her “forever home.” Marnellie is a wife, mother to two active children and dog-mom to a Lagotto Romagnolo. Traveling, watersports and DIY projects keep Marnellie and her family in a constant state of activity!
