Birth and Postpartum Doulas
What is a doula?
a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to a mother before, during and shortly after childbirth to help her achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible.
The Westover Hills Birth Center midwives highly recommend doulas. Here are some of the doulas in our area.
As a professionally trained and DONA certified birth doula, Desiree is passionate about supporting families through their birth journey.

Journey to Motherhood is not only for anyone expecting a child, but also for those who are on their journey to health and wellness in preparation for growing their family. Journey to Motherhood understands that the journey to becoming parents begins long before the baby develops, and that it is a multi-faceted endeavor requiring knowledge, support, and guidance.
Established in 2002, the Tranquil Seasons agency was founded by Anne Croudace - who trains and mentors women internationally as labor and postpartum doulas as well as providing advanced doula education including lactation support and childbirth educators.
I believe pregnancy and birth are miraculous events that have perpetuated humanity since the dawn of our creation. MOST normal healthy pregnancies are able to yield normal healthy births. There are many components to birth outside the scope of healthcare providers. I believe a woman needs continuous emotional, physical, and spiritual support as she accepts the gift of labor into her body.
With respect to the diversity of paths that people take in their reproductive years, I seek to provide a full spectrum of high quality, personalized, non-judgmental services to support all people and their families before, during and after pregnancy and birth.

Childbirth is amazing and truly awesome. Unfortunately, many families have childbirth experiences that leave them feeling like there could have been more. I hope to educate and empower you to make the decisions about your baby’s birth that create a lovely, memorable experience for you and your partner.
Alamo City Birth provides new families reassurance, understanding, encouragement, and professional support that eases the transition to life with a new baby. We provide support during the daytime and overnight. In our fast-paced and modern society, life often unrealistically expects parents to resume the life we had prior to our baby. There’s a reason our care providers recommends six to eight weeks of recovery after having a baby.
