Hospital, Birth Center or Homebirth…. No matter where you plan to deliver, a Doula is a valuable resource to a birthing mother and her family. Giving birth is often a vulnerable time for a family. Not only are birth outcomes improved when a Doula is present, but overall satisfaction and peace of mind are as well. We offer Doula Services for ALL birth settings, whether it be in a hospital, in a birth center or at home.

Her fulfillment is in knowing that each mother feels safe, supported and empowered through the beautiful and life changing journey that is pregnancy and birth.

Nina Woodfield is a DONA Certified Birth Doula and has completed a Labor and Birth with Spinning Babies workshop. She is a proud wife and mother of two, Tessa and Daxton. Her passion for everything birth related started when she was pregnant with her first child. After taking the required Child Education classes for the natural labor she had always dreamed of, she realized how fascinated she was learning about the women’s body and all the changes throughout pregnancy, labor and postpartum. She was completely hooked. Shortly after the birth of her daughter she began her training, became Certified and started working at her local birth center supporting first time mothers transform into motherhood. Nina truly believes that every family should have a chance of feeling completely empowered, fully supported and transformed by their birth experience. After supporting many families on this journey her passion only deepens. She hopes to one day be lucky enough to help support you and your family on this amazing journey!
