About me

My name is Shannon, I am a full-spectrum birth + postpartum doula and childbirth educator in Laramie, Wyoming. In my work, it is my goal to serve the clients and families I work alongside with compassion and empathy; to educate, support and hold space for you on your unique journey; and help you prepare for the adventure that pregnancy and childbirth is. Some of the beliefs I hold strongly as a birth professional are that 1. birth is a normal, physiological process that, in majority of cases, does not need medical intervention, birth is not a puzzle to be solved and 2. As your doula, though often I am present to best support the physiologic process of birth, there is no “right” way to have a baby, all birth is amazing no matter how it happens.
