Hiring a doula can be a wonderful addition to your birth at Sierra Natural Birth Center. Below are the professional doulas that we love and work well with. We encourage you to interview the different doulas to see who is the best fit for you.
Please note we do not have doulas on staff at Sierra Natural Birth Center. You will contract separately with a doula if you choose to hire one.

Hello mothers and partners my name is Lizzie and I am passionate about providing positive birth experiences. I fell in love with the world of pregnancy and childbirth at the age of fourteen upon the arrival of my first nephew. Ever since this experience I have been involved with both in-hospital and out-of-hospital births for family, friends and lovely clients. I enjoy every aspect of the natural birthing community, the emphasis on education, evidence, safety, maintaining a calm birthing environment, supporting the choices of families and more! I aim to provide clients and their families with information and resources to have a voice, foster a supportive environment during pregnancy and childbirth, and assist throughout labor or as I like to call it Mothermorphosis with a variety of skills including my divine feminine intuition.
Currently my career goal is becoming a Nurse-Midwife with a PhD, to further support the natural birthing community through research. I currently hold the following certificates; EMT, CNA, and an AS in Allied Health, with the goal of obtaining as much experience as possible to be a well rounded care provider. I’m furthering my education at Columbia College prospectively receiving an AS in Biology in fall of 2021. As well as becoming a certified doula through DONA and certified birth assistant through AABC. For these reasons and many more I absolutely love working within the community and especially the one Ellie has created at the Sierra Natural Birth Center. I am excited to be apart of a mission so close to my heart and I look forward to working with you. Mothermorphosis doula services, I’m with you every step of the way as you transform from women into mother.
