Certified Labor and Birth Doula, Evidence Based Birth® Instructor, Trained Childbirth Educator
Aloha and congratulations! My name is Courtney and I am ready to be on your team and positively impact your labor and birth journey.
I grew up in Kailua where I still reside today. I am a mom to two keiki and a wife to a supportive husband. I am all about family, coffee, a good movie (because popcorn) and beach days from sunrise to sunset. I love hiking all the hikes, camping and surfing.
My personal birth experiences inspired and motivated me to work in this field. My first birth didn’t go as I wanted because I did not know I could or should have made preferences. I furthermore did not know that I could use my voice and advocate for myself. My second birth was a full 180; I had a doula and a more than satisfying labor and birth experience. This is how I knew I wanted to be a labor and birth doula.
In my time as a doula I have done other workshops and courses. I became an Evidence Based Birth® Instructor in November 2018 and a trained Childbirth Educator in February 2019. I’m working towards becoming a Certified Lamaze Childbirth Educator.
As your labor and birth doula it is of utmost importance to me that you feel valued through this journey. With the skills and knowledge I have attained I hope to help elevate your voice, to radiate love in your birth space and to overall hold space for you emotionally and energetically. I believe in the birthing persons I support; I believe they have autonomy and the ability to navigate labor on their own terms.
It would be an honor to support you. Thank you for considering me as your Labor and Birth Doula!”
