Rebecca Peterson

Birth Doula

As your doula, I trust you and your innate wisdom to listen to your body, your heart, and your own inner wisdom as you work toward meeting your baby. In birth, I provide non- judgmental birth support and show up without personal agenda or ego to your birth. I am solution-oriented and a calm presence in any birth room. I listen intently to your hopes and desires for your birth experience and work to support your choices in whatever way possible. I am there to help you to decide what is best for you and your family and to walk with you through each moment and breath.

I am lucky to have guided hundreds of parents along their birth journey for the past 12 years as a Certified Birthing From Within Childbirth Educator, Yoga Instructor, and Doula. I certified as a Professional Full Spectrum Doula through Allo Doula Academy in 2022 and have been attending births throughout the past 10 years as a childbirth educator and doula. I have a love of learning and have completed trainings in Spinning Babies, Nervous-System regulation, and breath work and love to incorporate mindfulness into my support and preparation for birth.

I became a Postpartum Doula in 2016, after the birth of my second child. My postpartum care centers around helping parents bond with their babies, heal from birth, and find whatever tools help them step confidently into their role as parents. I am strongly influenced by Ayurveda and mindfulness and work to incorporate principles of both into my work with families through nourishing food and healing practices.

When I am not at a birth or supporting a family who just had a baby, I am exploring the outdoors with my family – hiking, camping, backpacking, rock climbing and trail- running! I love to laugh and have deep, meaningful conversations whenever possible.

Prior to becoming a mother and doula, I was lucky enough to travel and live abroad, and those experiences still influence my view of the world: with wonder and curiosity! And I bring that wonder and curiosity to each and every birth I am honored to attend.
