I have four beautiful children. I started studying pregnancy and childbirth in 2005 when I was pregnant with my first daughter. I have 10 years of personal and peer support experience with lactation. My personal birth experiences include one elective induction with an epidural, a cesarean due to footling breech presentation, an augmented VBAC with a failed epidural and an epidural free natural labor VBAC. My journey to VBAC two times solidified my decision to become something that would help, encourage and support birthing families; to become a doula. My goal is to change the world, one birth at a time.
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), breastfeeding, cloth diapering and baby wearing. My services are full spectrum, I reside in Southern Illinois and am a travelling doula.

Chelsea is a trained and certified Birth & Postpartum Doula, Placenta Encapsulation Specialist, and childbirth educator.

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. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
