Welcome to Red Raspberry Doula! My name is Henny Isaacson and I have a real love for the work that I do. I started RRD because I am truly passionate about the care that I am privileged to provide to my clients. In addition to my certification as a Doula, I am also a Family Herbalist, Lactation Educator, and Aromatherapist. I am an avid user of holistic remedies which I have studied specifically for women during pregnancy and labor. Additionally, I have a specialty in pain management and have a strong interest in understanding the scientific background of pain relief. I am trained to operate a labor TENS unit in addition to other non-invasive pain reduction strategies. Additionally, I am a certified Young Parent Support Specialist and have training in Prenatal Bodywork. Why is my business called Red Raspberry Doula? Both strong and sweet, raspberries remind me of the traits in me that I always hope to embody in business and in life. Also, the rich color and deep flavor represent, to me, the power and beauty of bringing a new life into the world. And just as red raspberry leaves help deliver a smooth, speedy labor, I too want to ease your birth process with my support. With that I would like to wish you a sincere congratulations on your birth journey and I hope to have the honor to strengthen and sweeten your birth.

Care philosophy

I believe that birth is a divine event. My goal is to provide the women I serve with compassionate, professionally skilled doula care and imbue my clients with confidence in their own amazing abilities. My practice is one that protects and respects more conservative values and offers people of faith, patriots, and families with strong ideals a supportive environment.

    Let me start with this point first. I have NO REGRETS in having Henny as my doula and will be having her for ALL my future doula needs 🙂

    For reference, I had an all natural birth and delivered at a birthing center. As a first time mom, I was anxious about child birth, even more so with my choice in going all natural. Once Henny arrived at my home, I instantly felt more relieved and was a lot more calmer. She came prepared with everything! She had a list of different methods and things we could try and do to help during labor. From motivational cards, rebozo scarf, hydrating drops to add in your water, TENS unit, to even a lollipop. She has it all!

    Henny was very attentive both during and even after my birth. She is so sweet and so kindhearted. Henny is truly there to help and support you however you may need during this precious moment. I can wholeheartedly recommend her as a doula.

I began my journey as a nurse 13 years ago but my love for birth truly started when I first learned of my own pregnancy in 2006. After what seemed like a traumatic birthing experience with my son, I made it my mission to help as many woman (especially women of color) have a serene and magical birthing experience. I was a doula for both of my sisters pregnancies. One had 3 children and the other recently had her first. I finally answered the divine calling to dedicate my time and energy solely to my mission of making sure every birthing person has the very best experience possible during such a momentous occasion in their life. It's not only important for me to support and empower the birthing person but also the partner. My goal is to assist all involved in this special moment and provide a positive and fulfilling experience for all.

Care philosophy

Lighthouse Effect is your guiding light, no matter the destination. I am an experienced nurse turned doula offering compassion and continuous emotional, physical and informational support to families before, during and just after birth. This allows the birthing person to feel safe and at ease all while feeling empowered to advocate for self, which allows the labor and birth to progress.

I entered into the childbirth field for two main reasons. First, I wanted to empower women through the natural methods of childbirth. I remember the feelings of strength and control that I encountered when I had my two children at home in the presence of midwives and I wanted to pass this on to other expectant mothers. With my first pregnancy, I was alone and thinking of giving my baby up for adoption. Then one day, along comes the most incredible woman who ended up changing my life. She was a midwife who said she would take me on as a client for the fee of $50 (for supplies) in the hopes that a home birth would convince me to keep the baby. Well, her plan was a success and she has given me a gift I have yet to repay. Now I have a twenty-two-year-old daughter, a seventeen-year-old son, an eight-year-old daughter and the most wonderful husband in the world. My second reason for getting into the birthing field was because I want to eradicate the general public’s misconceptions about pregnancy and the birthing process. A woman’s pregnant uterus should not be treated as a tumorous growth to be controlled by medicine, but rather a natural event that women have been participating for many years before doctors. In most cases, birth can be accomplished safely and satisfactorily without intervention, such as drugs and surgery. The need for patience must be practiced in the presence of a laboring woman.

Care philosophy

I believe that each labor and birth is a unique and miraculous experience. I also believe that there is more than one good way to have a baby and that parents should have the proper tools available for effective informed consent and informed refusal.

    I have had three home births with Candace and she is absolutely amazing! All of my experiences were different, but my most recent delivery was more unexpected. I was able to deliver a very large 9.5 lb posterior baby at home with Candace’s quick action and guidance. I am certain if not for her and my midwife, I would have had a c-section. She has so much experience, that I felt completely comfortable during the whole process. Throughout the prenatal appointments, she never judged or was pushy- just very down to earth and friendly. When offering testing, she always explained risk/benefit and alternatives without bias towards her opinion or judgement. She’s very empathetic and you can tell she loves what she does. There’s so much more I could say, but I’m eternally grateful for Candace for all three of my births. I will not have a birth without her by my side. She is a gift to moms.
