Hannah has been passionate about birth since reading Ina May's Guide to Childbirth during her second pregnancy, where she began to believe that women are warriors, equipped to handle labor and birth beautifully, whether that birth is at home or the hospital or somewhere in between. She has been assisting family and friends in labor since 2008.
Hannah eventually decided she wanted to become a professional doula.
Hannah is certified in the following:
- Certified birth doula
- Certified bereavement doula
- Certified placenta encapsulation specialist
- Bengkung belly binding specialist
- Certified in the use of Reflexology in pregnancy and labor
Hannah is a certified birth doula through DONA International as well as a DONA International Oklahoma State Ambassador. She has also received postpartum doula training through DONA. Additionally, she is a certified birth and bereavement doula through Stillbirthday Academy. Her CPES training is through IPPA.
Hannah loves to connect with families by supporting them in pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period. She does this by listening to their goals and coming alongside them to help them achieve those goals. She works WITH the partner and birth team and helps her clients learn how to advocate for themselves. Hannah supports all births: medicated, unmedicated, hospital, home, birth center, cesarean, vaginal, multiples, adoption, vbacs, etc.
