Hello! Welcome to the North Cascade Doulas Blog!
Doula care in Bellingham and the surrounding areas will never be the same. You now have a new option while searching for your doula in Whatcom or Skagit County!
Here we are, the owners of North Cascade Doulas…
I developed an interest for doula work as my career in 2012 while living in California. After working in the Fresno area for 2 years, our family moved back up to Whatcom County.
I quickly jumped back into doula work, serving many birth doula clients in Bellingham, Ferndale, Lynden and Skagit County.
With continued education and building on my experience, I have recognized the importance of creating sustainable practices, raising community awareness and changing the culture around doula care to more positively impact the families I serve.
I began my work as a professional doula while pregnant with my daughter in 2015 after a friend told me about the profession.
I jumped right in and haven’t looked back.
I have a strong drive to expand my knowledge in everything surrounding pregnancy, labor and the postpartum period.
I have used that to work with several families in Whatcom County as their birth doula, postpartum doula, postpartum placenta specialist and childbirth educator.
