Cypress Doula & Healing Services - Sacramento, CA


My  love for birth work and babies began in 2007 when I attended a friends  birth in a birthing center. After witnessing her dig deep inside herself  with the support of a midwife and myself let me know this was my  calling. I found a birth worker mentor and a midwife who trained me and  certified me as a Doula. I am proud to say some of the first children I  was a Doula for are now 9 and 10 years old. Contact

Alizeti Doula Services - Beaumont, California


Dr. Angela Gordon-Nichols the owner of Alizeti Doula Services is a Birth & Postpartum Doula.  I  am a mother of three natural childbirths, I am new to the birth world  involving  midwives and doulas.  I experienced my first home birth this  year (2018) watching my daughter deliver my granddaughter.  This was a  life changing experience.  As I watched the midwife and birth doula help my daughter navigate  through her labor and delivery at home, I felt my purpose coming into  clear view.  I am retired with over 20 years of counseling experience and I am ready  to use this experience to help support women in whatever their birth  plan may be.  The word doula is Greek for a woman who serves.  I am committed to  serving women through their pregnancy and birth decisions as well as  helping them adjust to the first two weeks of drgnichols1@gmail.com

Meet Tiffany Turner. I  strive to create impactful pregnancy, birth and postpartum experiences.  I use  massage, music, aromatherapy, visualization, breathing, and tips  on positioning as a means of improving the birthing experience overall  regardless of ethnicity, social-economic status, prior knowledge of  birthing options or prior birthing experience.
Working  with children and families has always been my passion. My first job at  the age of 14 was a pre-school teacher’s assistant and the passion for  working with children has never left. I’m currently supporting expecting  parents as a birth doula and continuously filling my doula bucket  with DONA Doula Training (I would like to offer Postpartum Doula service  as well). Addition to training I have worked in child development and  education as a preschool teacher, teacher, program director, and family  support coordinator.  Contact

Birth Is Doulable - San Bernardino, CA


Tunisia Thompson, Birth & Postpartum Doula. Motherhood and Birth Work have always been my two greatest passions.

My desires are to encourage women to step back into their innate power to create empowering birth experiences through education, mindfulness, confidence, trust and support.

I am a boy mom of two. My oldest son was born in a hospital, through induction with an epidural and other interventions. My youngest son was born at home, in the water, with no drugs or interventions. While both of my labors and births were on opposite sides of the spectrum, none of those factors play a part in how I felt about each experience. The only vast difference is with my first son I felt blinded, uninformed, unheard, and unsure of all that was going on. And, with my second son, I felt connected, educated, supported, and involved in the process.

Regardless of what kind of birth you wish to have, I am here for you.

I am here to help guide you, support you, and advocate for you.

I am here to create a safe space for you to labor & birth confidently.

I am here to be completely present physically, emotionally, and energetically.

And most importantly, I am here to help you have a safe, memorable, and positive birth experience. Contact
