Chelsea is a birth and postpartum doula trained through DONA International, as well as a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC). A self-proclaimed “birth nerd,” Chelsea has been fascinated by all things perinatal since the birth of her younger sister, when Chelsea was just five years old. She took a winding path to birth work, including a career in engineering and finance and experience as a professional Swing dancer.
Today, Chelsea has two young children of her own and a passion for empowering parents to have birth and postpartum journeys they will cherish. She holds dear the belief that pregnant people are the experts on their own bodies, capabilities, and preferences. As a doula, Chelsea seeks to educate and support her clients while instilling the confidence they need to fearlessly pursue the birth of their dreams. As a CLC, she understands the tender and vulnerable feelings that go along with nourishing a newborn, and takes pride in helping parents achieve the feeding relationship they want with their infants.
Chelsea has a special place in her heart for expecting and postpartum parents who may feel marginalized for any reason, including pregnancy and bith complications. She is committed to eliminating the race gap that exists in US pregnancy and birth outcomes. She believes that ALL parents deserve respectful perinatal care in which they have a voice, and works toward that goal with every client.
Chelsea’s clients can expect lots of individualized attention, evidence-based guidance, and a judgement-free listening ear throughout their care. They can rely on a strong analytical mind as well as a dancer’s faith in the human body to accompany them on their path. To contact Chelsea, visit her website and book a free consultation.
