We are happy to provide listings for your community. The birth professionals listed have endorsed the Military Birth Resource Network's Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice and where applicable they have a base license. These professionals endorse our goal to make a positive difference for pregnant women, new mothers, and their families through education, nurturing, and advocacy while fostering respect, knowledge, and integrity among professionals everywhere.
Find a birth or postpartum doula. There are a range of levels of experience for doulas from the newly trained doula to a doula with many years experience. Doulas listed on our website do not work for MBRN or the local chapter. There are a range of "well seasoned" to "brand new" doulas to fit your needs. Doulas listed on our website do not work for MBRN or the Local Chapter. We support a mother's right to choose the type of birth that is right for her - un-medicated, medicated, cesarean, VBAC, home birth, hospital birth, or birth center birth. Every woman will choose birth practices that she feels is right for her and regardless of those choices, our goal is to support her during this incredibly important time. There are variations in philosophies and practices in the professionals listed in our member guide. The doulas within our network are trained by a national or internationally recognized organization. It is the responsibility of each consumer to verify the credentials of each professional. MBRN encourages consumers to interview professionals to determine which professional is the right person for their needs. Some doulas may provide volunteer services while others will charge a fee for service, MBRN does not regulate a doulas' fee but the network does encourage doulas participating in this program to consider each families' situation and circumstances.
Area served: Ft.Bliss,Texas and surrounding areas.
As a birth doula I provide emotional and physical support during your pregnancy and labor, not only to you but to your partner and family as well. During the pregnancy I can assist with creating a birth plan and provide evidence-based research to help make the best choices for you and your baby. I have my own experience with breastfeeding, cloth diapering, baby-wearing and car seat safety, on top of being a Certified Lactation Counselor. I am also able to provide local resources for your specific needs from IBCLCs to CPSTs and so much more. My wish for you is that you achieve the desired birth no matter the setting. Whether it is at home, hospital or a birthing center. I also offer Placenta Encapsulation at a very affordable rate, in hopes that every mother will be able to experience the potential benefits and have a great start into motherhood. Please contact me if you would like to set up a free consultation and see if I am the Doula to support you. I look forward to hearing from you!
