Hello expecting family!
My name is Courtney (Coco) Gillenwater, and I'm a professional Birth Doula! All of my life, I knew I wanted to help families build and expand their legacies. I am so grateful that I took a deeper dive into what a Doula is. I'm a professional hype man who is educated in childbirth and I love it! All I've ever wanted to do was support a mother and family during their entire pregnancy, no matter if they chose to deliver unmedicated, medicated, in a hospital, or at home with a midwife. I love being a Birth Doula, and the sensitive power behind it.
My job as a Birth Doula is to give the Birther reassurance, comfort, emotional guidance, and to stay by the laboring woman's side. I enjoy encouraging mothers to trust the process that their bodies were designed for. The birthing process should be handled with much love, carefulness, gentleness, and grace. I hope that I can assist you on this beautiful journey.
What is a Doula?
The best way to describe a Doula is REASSURANCE!
Provides pre- and post-partum emotional and physical support. The Birth Doula accompanies the woman in labor, and provides/suggests comfort measures to the laboring woman and partner.
Sibling doulas are available to care for older brothers and sisters while their parents are focused on bringing the new baby into the world.
Provides informational, physical and emotional support to the birthing person following childbirth.
