Experienced Birth Doula
Experienced Postpartum Doula
CD(PALS), CPD(NAPS), CLE

My interest in birth work was very organic as a continuation of the childcare and teaching experiences I had both here and in South America. I grew up in warm Sao Paulo, Brazil, and after moving to Seattle, I dove deep into my calling to be a birth and postpartum doula.

These skills are the foundation of my doula practice.

Anna Humphreys
Experienced Birth Doula

My mother’s career in birth photography exposed me to the glorious mysteries of pregnancy, birth, and babies from an early age. I was fascinated with this time of life and became a doula starting in 2012, largely as a volunteer with at-risk families in Southern Oregon. I attended 100+ births from home to hospital, and was employed at the Ashland Birth Center.
