After Jessica had three littles, she soon awakened to the fact that in our culture there is a large disconnect between birth and postpartum. Through her birth and postpartum experiences she was inspired to help other women and families navigate this challenging yet amazing time in life. Jessica is a licensed nurse with training in Ayurveda Postpartum care and Birth/Postpartum Doula training through Mountain Midwives in Billings, MT. She has worked as a Midwife Assistant, trained in Rebozo labor support, and certified as a Lactation Educator. She has a deep interest in ancient traditional cultures as well as nutritional and herbal wellness, especially those surrounding motherhood. Jessica is excited to be apart of your journey!
Mariah is new to the birth community. Currently, she is training with DONA International for doula certification. Her passion for birth and pregnancy comes from her desire to know what her options are when she becomes a mother. Sharing knowledge, increasing awareness, and bridging the gaps in our current birth culture is what she's striving towards. God put this work on her heart and has called her to serve other women through advocacy and education. She's looking forward to serving families of the Palouse as a birth doula.
After experiencing the powerful impact of doula care during the birth of her own daughter, Rebecca felt called to support other women and families in the birthing process and to celebrate the transformation of families as they welcome new persons into their lives. Rebecca attended a DONA Birth Doula training workshop in July 2017 and completed an apprenticeship with other local doulas in the area. She now enjoys serving local families as a birth and postpartum doula. In her spare time, Rebecca enjoys hiking and adventuring with her husband and daughter. Rebecca's business name is Palouse Women's Wellness.
