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.

Whitney is a DONA trained Doula. But before becoming a Doula, Whitney worked as a medic for Med Flight in Dayton Ohio. In addition, she also spent seven years as a combat medic in the US Army. During her time in the Army she served as a field medic during Operation Enduring Freedom. Following deployment she worked as a trainer and instructor for various NATO medical field operations. After leaving the EMS field she decided to help serve her community in a different way by becoming a Doula. Whitney now advises  families on how to achieve their desired birth experience through evidence based education and by providing emotional support during pregnancy, birth and beyond.

The Military Birth Resource Network is very excited to have such an amazing asset to the community leading our team.
