Hi! I am Rebecca Bennett, the face and creator of The Birth Story Doula. I am a mom to three and a certified birth doula. I have supported 100 moms through labor and postpartum through a variety of scenarios, some joyful and others not. I have truly seen most of what the birth world has to offer - except a baby born en caul... someone work that out for me in the future please.
Three years ago we moved our family to the mission field. I have now found my passion in supporting you in your unique birth stories over the wonderful world of the internet.
We will carry our birth stories with us forever and I am here to be a safe place for you to process all the ways you feel about yours. I am here to prioritize you, the mother, and your story.
Society tends to downplay our stories especially if we have a “happy & healthy outcome” but I am here to save space for your story no matter what society tells you to think about it.
Our friends are wonderful support structures but many times I have found mommy groups and friend circles can be competitive when it comes to birth stories. We each strive to be the loudest, not in volume, but in experience. I want to hear you and validate you so that you may work through your own story in a healthy way.
Disclaimer: I am not a therapist or certified counselor. I am an experienced birth and postpartum doula who is skilled and trained in supporting moms through their birth/postpartum journey and story. I will always refer you to your care provider for medical questions or mental health/postpartum depression concerns.
