Erica S. | Postpartum Doula in MN

Erica Is My Doula

    Practice overview

    I am someone who loves to support and advocate for others. I am a natural born caretaker and get much enjoyment by helping others. I was in the human services world as a chemical dependency counselor for about 15 years and worked with individuals when they were at their worst and never judged their journey. I started my work as a birth and postpartum doula in March of 2022, where I continue to work with others with a nonjudgmental stance. I would be honored to be at your side while bringing a new life into this world as your birth doula. I would also be privileged to work with your growing family during the 4th trimester (12 weeks after delivery). Postpartum can be overwhelming to many, and I would be able to provide tools, tips and an extra set of hands to help!

    Care philosophy

    As a birth doula, my hope is that you can look back on your birth experience with me and have positive memories. I will respect your choices and help you process options as needed. I believe having your voice heard is incredibly important, and that is what I will do, listen. As a postpartum doula, it is crucial that you trust me in your home, with your family and mainly with your newborn baby!

      We used Erica for the birth of our daughter. This was baby number 4 for us but the first time having a doula present. It was an absolute pleasure to have Erica as a part of our team. She offered fantastic support during labor and I am forever grateful to her for getting me through hard active labor. Her soothing voice and calm cheerleading helped get me to the end. It was truly such a positive experience working with Erica!

      Erica is a wonderful Doula! She is kind, caring and professional. She can think quick on her feet and is very organized and detail oriented. As a fellow Doula I often ask her questions or we bounce ideas off each other! I wish I had more opportunities to work directly with her.
