I have four beautiful children. I started studying pregnancy and childbirth in 2005 when I was pregnant with my first daughter. I have 15 years of personal and peer support experience with lactation.
I began my journey to become a doula in April 2015. I am a Certified Birth Doula through CBI, a certified Birth and Bereavement Doula through StillBirthday, a Licensed Practical Nurse in the state of IL, specializing in pediatrics. I am also a trained Placenta Specialist through pbiU. I have been the Leader for the previous ICAN of Southeastern Illinois Chapter. I am passionate about and have a special focus & training on VBAC (vaginal birth after a cesarean). cesarean births, high risk pregnancies and teen moms. My services are full spectrum, I reside in Southern Illinois and am a travelling doula for both birth and postpartum clients in the US.

Chelsea is a trained and certified Birth & Postpartum Doula, Placenta Encapsulation Specialist, and childbirth educator. Chelsea’s passion for birth work began after her birth experience with her son, during which she felt very uneducated and unsupported by the hospital staff. She took her initial training in 2015 and began independently working as a doula. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In 2016, she launched her own doula agency based in the Triad area of North Carolina where she and her team served hundreds of families through doula work and placenta encapsulation services. When the global pandemic hit, Chelsea decided to pursue a career in nursing and started working as a CNA. She has decided to partner with Trinity Doula Services and expand along the east coast and across the country.

"I loved Sarah as soon as I met her! She is very personable, sweet and she really knows her stuff! I wouldn't have made it through drug free childbirth without her by my side cheering me on!"
