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.  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.

Hello there! My name is Sondra and I am proud to call Arkansas home! I am a Board Certified Lactation Consultant, Certified Doula and Educator with over a decade of experience serving and supporting families in all walks of life. I began my journey to becoming a lactation consultant over 11 years ago after my own struggles with breastfeeding. It wasn't long after I learned the added value being educated as a doula brought to this field. I never knew the two would go hand in hand so beautifully until I supported and helped my very first birth client overcome breastfeeding challenges. It was then I knew that this work was truly my calling. Arkansas holds a special place in my heart. You may only be here for a short amount of time, but my goal while you are here is to help you feel supported and connected to the community around you. I look forward to supporting you and being your birth and parenting battle buddy through this journey.

Hi! I'm Brittany: a birth aficionado, SBD certified labor/bereavement doula and photographer located in Central Arkansas (Little Rock). I'm locally grown but have come and gone across the pond, having been stationed overseas as a military brat and a military spouse. During my travels I found a love of storytelling through my lens and I've never looked back. I would be so honored to add your story to those I have told!
