Meghan is a DONA certified birth doula and postpartum doula. She also pulls from her training in rebirthing breathwork, ayurvedic bodywork and herbalism to create a multidimensional approach to supporting families.
Pregnancy, birth and postpartum were a big part of Meghan’s childhood. Her grandmother had eleven children unassisted at home, her aunts had multiple children, and she grew up surrounded by pregnancy, breastfeeding and babies. When she realized that being a companion to families during these rites of passage was an actual job, she knew she’d found her calling.
Years of traveling and teaching English abroad exposed Meghan to a variety of cultures and taught her to remain non-judgmental and curious. She’s worked with families from many cultures and backgrounds with various spiritual and parenting preferences. She believes in the importance of finding your unique path as a parent.
Meghan helps to create a calm space in the birth room and coaches partners on how to stay involved and connected to the process. She’s found breathwork to be one of the most reliable ways to bring relaxation and relief in birth. She loves home births and has also supported high-risk pregnancies, IVF families, hospital births, and cesareans.
One of Meghan’s favorite ways to support postpartum is cooking and she can accommodate dietary preferences from vegan to paleo to ayurvedic and comfort foods. While she knows how to care for newborns, her main focus is helping you as the parent to bond, breastfeed (if desired) and thrive in your new role. She offers vaginal steaming, abhyanga, herbal support and breathwork sessions to help with postpartum healing.
Meghan lives in Boulder with her husband and when she isn’t working with new families or freelance writing (her other gig)… she’s traveling, dancing, soaking in a hot spring or cooking new recipes. To find out more about Meghan and how you can work together, go to www.birthandbeing.com
