Hi there, I’m Stephanie and I’m a Holistic Fertility Practitioner and Birth Doula with a passion for helping women restore hormonal balance and have informed births. I was born at the Naval Hospital in Bethesda to my Filipino mother and Scottish-American father. I have a Master’s of Science in Holistic Nutrition with a focus on prenatal and postpartum nutrition.
I have been working as a birth doula since 2018 after 10 years in the defense industry. I have worked in hospital, birth center and home settings. I am excited to be a part of BirthCare and help you as your birth assistant.
My approach to maternal care is from an integrative and functional perspective. This approach is firmly entrenched in the belief that the body has the capacity to heal itself if given the right tools. I specialize in working with clients throughout the whole birth cycle, from fertility to pregnancy to postpartum.
Outside my birth life I am a mother of three boys and a beekeeper. I love seeing human babies and bee babies!
I am NRP and CPR certified and have been trained in breastfeeding support, Spinning Babies, and newborn care.
Service area: I live in Southern Maryland and prefer to serve clients within the Alexandria and Southern Maryland area. I am open to clients in other areas on a case-by-case basis, so please ask if you would like to work with me.
Fee: $900 for home births, $950 for birth center. $50 discount for veterans or those currently serving.
