“Let choice whisper in your ear and love murmur in your heart. Be ready. Here comes life."—Maya Angelou
Hello and welcome! I work as a doula; providing birth support and photography for families in and around Boulder County, Colorado. I believe in your ability to birth your baby, and I would be honored to be a part of your story. I am available to answer any questions you may have. All types of families are welcome here. This is a LGBTQ+ friendly and transgender safe space.
LONGMONT DOULA & BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHER
Hi! I'm Amy (she/her). My background is in Human Development and Early Childhood Education. I have worked as a nursing assistant in memory care, as a nanny, and as a teacher before becoming a doula.
I started my training and education surrounding birth support in fall of 2019 with DONA. I have an immense respect for pregnant and birthing people, and it is my deep privilege to hold space for birthers and their partners. I love helping people.
When I’m not learning about the mind blowing world of birth, I also love reading, snow cones, geeking out on musical theater and books, dance, walks outside, and vegan baking! I adore spending time with my wonderful child, who lights up my days. Bringing them into this world was the most intense, magical, and empowering thing I have experienced as a human. I want to help other birthing people and their partners feel prepared, supported, and empowered during this incredible life changing time.
Please contact me at AQBirthServices@gmail.com with any questions or to set up a free phone or video consultation to see if we’re a good fit for each other. I use a sliding scale to help support low income families, families of color, and LGBTQ+ families, so please don’t hesitate to contact me with questions about pricing. I look forward to hearing from you!
"I could not have asked for a better doula than Amy. She was with me during my third birth, which went wildly different than I was hoping or expecting. She was there by my side with motivation, reassurance, laughter, and a continuously good spirit. Amy is the best listener, and has so much wisdom about the birthing experience. She is the kind of person you feel comfortable with straight away, which really comes in handy once you’re baring all! She was my advocate in a hospital setting and always helped me understand what was happening so I could make informed choices. I could not have asked for a better person to celebrate the arrival of my baby with. Thank you, Amy!!"
