Kayleen Delgado – CBA
Hi! My name is Kayleen Delgado and I’m an AABC Certified Birth Assistant and a DONA trained doula. I absolutely love all things pregnancy and birth! I first learned about the role of a doula while preparing for the birth of my daughter at Sierra Natural Birth Canter, with Ellie as my midwife. My doula met with me and my husband a couple of times before the birth and was right beside me once labor started. She provided emotional support as well as physical comfort techniques, that lead to me having the birth experience I desired. Ever since then I have wanted to provide the same support and care, before, during, and after labor, that I was so blessed to receive. My heart for all women is that during the most beautiful and miraculous moment you would feel encouraged, safe, well-informed, and empowered to have the birth you desire. I have had the honor to serve at homebirths, hospital births, and births at SNBC. I now accept Medi-Cal for doula services. I currently live in Tuolumne, CA with my husband and two daughters. I look forward to hearing from you and serving you however I can!

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.
Hello! My name is Tynesha and I am honored to be able to support birthing people and their families during this transformative time. My life experiences, including the birth of my two children and my challenges coexisting with pelvic floor dysfunction, have opened my eyes to the various ways we may not be fully supported within our current medical and social systems. This realization led me to pursue my training in birthwork, with a special emphasis on pelvic floor health. My role as a birthworker is, first and foremost, to listen to you! Each individual is whole and unique; I am here to honor your experiences, emotions and needs by providing unbiased, evidence-based information and continuous support. It is my sincere wish that you feel informed, heard, connected and nurtured on your journey! I am a Certified Full Spectrum, Labor & Birth, and Postpartum birthworker (doula) and a Certified Pelvic Floor YogaTM Instructor. As a Full Spectrum birthworker, I am trained to support all reproductive experiences, including miscarriage, abortion, stillbirth, infant loss, adoption and fertility. I offer informed and respectful support to all birthing people. I also now accept Medi-Cal clients.
