Stephanie (she/her/hers) is a birth and postpartum doula, holistic birth attendant, and placenta encapsulation specialist. She received a full-spectrum doula certification through Birthing Advocacy Doula Trainings (BADT) in 2021 and is continuing her education in midwifery and holistic birth attending. Stephanie’s philosophy of birth is rooted in supporting self-directed families through conception, pregnancy, birth, and postpartum as a rite of passage and spiritual experience. She uses her intuition and deep knowing as a caregiver to support families during this deeply transformative time.
Stephanie’s passage into birthwork began at the point of conception with her first child in 2018. This personal birth experience awakened her soul to the calling of community care and midwifery with a longing to help others reclaim their power. Stephanie has witnessed and experienced firsthand homebirth and hospital settings and the stark differences between these two models of care. Stephanie is a strong advocate for people within her care and has an innate sense of attunement for her clients’ needs.
Stephanie’s past experiences prior to birthwork are steeped in passion for helping Mother Earth and being of service. Immediately out of high school, Stephanie apprenticed with a small town veterinarian and learned hands-on skills. After that time, she left for college out-of-state where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Health from Colorado State University and master’s degree in Environmental Policy & Management from the University of Denver. Immediately out of college, she worked for a corporation and then a consulting firm doing environmental work across the US. Stephanie also worked in the environmental nonprofit space for over 8 years.
Feeling called to be of greater service, connecting more deeply within her community, and seeking to help families reclaim their autonomy and power, Stephanie has begun her journey into birthwork as a doula and aspiring midwife. Stephanie lives in Longmont, CO (unceded Arapahoe, Ute, and Cheyenne territories) with her two kids. In her freetime, she loves biking, hiking, baking, reading and outdoor adventures of many kinds!
