ABOUT

BIRTH PHILOSOPHY

Childbirth is supernaturally natural. It is euphoric, yet so real and raw. It is a self-transformative life changing experience from the inside out. There is life in its very essence and origin. Therefore, it must be kept sacred for both mother, child, and loved ones.

THE TRANSFORMATIVE MISSION

Our goal is for mothers to experience childbirth positively through intentional quality care and informative support. To become transformed in body, soul, mind, and spirit through the sacredness of birth. Lastly, to experience healing and wholeness of self through holistic birth doula and postpartum care.

CORE VALUES

  • Connection 

  • Integrity

  • Compassion

  • Education

  • Healing

I loved my experience. It was a calm atmosphere which Cherilynn helped foster. She was very respectful of my space while also knowing when to step in and offer water, encouragement or suggestions. She was super confident and professional.

I have been a birth doula for over two years now, trained and certified with DONA International, and with 25+ births under my belt, I feel honored to be able to share my expertise and experience with women and families in the Raleigh, NC area. I approach birth holistically, serving those who want natural unmedicated hospital births, wellness center, or home births. I have had experience being a birth doula in all of those birth settings and would love to support you physically, emotionally, and mentally during childbirth. I passionately desire for women to connect with their whole selves; body, spirit, and soul to become fully transformed through birth whether it's your first or fourth child.

 

A bit about me. I grew up in North Carolina and I have traveled to 10 countries thus far. As a 29-year-old, I enjoy good local coffee and meandering about in nature! I married an incredible man a couple of years ago and we had our first daughter back in November at home. My homebirth was incredible and I would do it again! If you'd like to know more about how I became a doula, go to the birth blog tab to read about it!

Placenta Encapsulation Specialist
ProDoula Trained PPD-ICS, PES


I am pleased to offer my services as a ProDoula trained Placenta Encapsulation Specialist. I have always been passionate about birth, especially the fourth trimester, as it was a beautiful and challenging season for me with my four births. There are many benefits to choosing this time-honored method, including hormone recovery, increased milk supply, increased energy, and earlier post-partum recovery. My goal is to partner with you in holistically caring for your body and mind on your post-partum journey.

"Transforming fear into bravery. Transforming past birth trauma into inner peace. Transforming doubts into freeing truths. Transforming your weakness into unwavering strength!"
