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 journey into parenthood.
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 you elevate your voice, to help radiate love in your birth space and to overall hold space for you emotionally and energetically. I believe in the birthing persons I support, that they know what is best for them and I support the choices they make. I once told some clients I am like a chameleon – I adapt and make sure your needs and wants are met!
Thanks for considering me as your Labor and Birth Doula!”
