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.

Hi, I'm Ashley! I am a mother of 3 amazing kids and have been married 15 years. My husband is Active Duty Air Force and we have lived overseas and stateside. We love to travel, laugh as much as possible, and experience all we can in life. I started my family young which showed me the need for support during pregnancy and postpartum, especially in our military community.

It is important to me to provide an unbiased service to families through emotional, physical, and educational support. While I am so passionate about being a birth doula, I really like to spotlight postpartum care. Unfortunately, postpartum support is sometimes overlooked and I aim to fill in those gaps.I strive to help families reach their goals throughout pregnancy, labor, and postpartum.

I’m Jesi, a caffeine enthusiast and internationally published mother of three. Photography has always been something I was interested in since childhood, but I never really had the support or means to explore my potential. Then I had kids and I learned that your iPhone can only do so much. In August 2015 with the support of family and friends So Smith Photography was born. When I picked up a camera owning my own business was never the intention, it was just a way to remember everyday moments with my kids and for them to know how lucky they were to have the childhood that they have. One thing led to another and here I am several years and many new lenses later.

My passion lies in all things birth and I find that my style of documentary photography shines brightest with birth and fresh 48 sessions
