Hi! I'm Courtney - a birth doula, pregnancy and early parenting consultant, and the owner of Spirit of the Midwife Pregnancy Services. Since committing to birth work in 2012, I have been working to change narratives and outcomes associated with pregnancy and birth. I have made it my life’s mission to serve women and families during such a sacred, special time.
From childhood, I have been fascinated by the pregnancy and birth experiences. My interest never waned and while completing my Master’s thesis I became aware of the shocking disparities in birth experiences throughout the United States. After attending the birth of a sorority sister’s first child, I knew my passion for women, families, and birth work would be best realized as a doula. Serving as a birth worker has greatly enriched my life so much so that I plan to enroll in nursing school with the goal of becoming a Certified Nurse Midwife!
In my free time, I enjoy playing in makeup, reading to increase my knowledge of random facts (I’m always ready for a game of trivia!), finding new additions for my shoe closet, and binge watching popular shows.
Through Spirit of the Midwife, I hope to inform, educate, and support women and families through pregnancy and birth by providing information, resources, and relationships that will positively impact the birth experience and their lives.
