Birth doula, postpartum doula, childbirth educator (Birth doula team member)
Labor, birth and parenthood are incredibly awesome, wild and wonderful journeys, and I love helping my clients along that journey! I’m a caretaker by nature, and comforting and supporting my clients comes naturally. I love every bit of helping people and their partners through the experience of birth, whether that occurs in a birth pool or the operating room.
I trained as a birth doula in 2007 with DONA International. I’ve also trained with other organizations (I’m a lover of workshops and continuing education). I was a professional Mary Poppins for nearly 15 years, nannying for many families in the Greensboro and Winston-Salem areas of NC, taking care of children from newborn through the teen years. I’ve nannied and been and a postpartum doula for several families with twins, and love helping with multiples! My many years of nanny care gives me a unique insight into that beautiful, sweet but exhausting postpartum period and I enjoy helping my clients thrive and feel confident as new parents. I’ve seen first-hand the difference having doula makes, and I feel strongly that every type of birth and every type of family benefits from doula care. My biggest wishes for our clients are that they feel informed and prepared, make all their own decisions, and feel fully supported during their birth.
I’ve been a doula for over 14 years, and have experience with many different types of families and births, including water birth, medicated births, inductions, twins, natural births, VBAC and planned cesareans births. I’ve been a professional Mary Poppins to many families throughout Greensboro and Winston-Salem, and have had the pleasure of serving local families during the postpartum period. I’m a long time member of our local doula organization, PADA, and am also a member DONA International.

Hi, my name is Margo Shelton. My husband and I have lived in Salisbury, North Carolina for thirteen years, where we are work-from-home parents to our three young children.
It was after the birth of my third child, in 2011, that I decided to become a birth doula. I am currently certified through DONA International. I have been using my time to take several trainings in order to better serve my clients more fully. I am trained through DONA International as a postpartum doula, and have served numerous families throughout the triad in the past two years as their postpartum doula. I also am a travel postpartum doula, and accompany families on business trips and on vacations, to continue their postpartum support away from home.
Postpartum Doula, Early Childhood and Parent Educator
Hello! I’m Hadera, and I really can not remember a time when babies and families were not an important part of my life. I am the oldest child, in a family with 7 children! It feels like I have always loved and cared for babies. I now have 2 children of my own and have worked with hundreds of children and their families in various capacities.
I love all things education. I believe education begins before birth really, and starts with love and proper care of the parents and their newborns.
My experience includes but is not limited to, being a Lead Teacher in an Infant classroom , toddler classrooms and being an unofficial postpartum doula for friends and family, including my sister’s twins. One of my most memorable experiences was being a live in Governess for a family with a toddler and quadruplets! Like the quadruplets, both of my children were preemies. I love caring for all babies, but I definitely have a special place in my heart for the littles ones and their families without ideal beginnings.
I am caring, calm, nurturing and a dedicated educator to my core . My education is in Art, Teacher Education , Early Childhood Education and most recently Postpartum Doula. I have completed my postpartum doula training with DONA international.

RN, Newborn Care Specialist
I am the mom to 4 wonderful children ages 19-30. I have also been blessed with a son-in-law, 2 daughters-in-law and 2 grandchildren. I was married to my best friend for 31 ½ years until he passed away from Leukemia in January, 2018. I have been a Labor and Delivery Nurse since 2010 and I count it an honor to help and support women and their families as they bring a new life into the world. As a Newborn Care Specialist for the past two years, I provide overnight care for families of newborns throughout Winston-Salem, Greensboro and High Point. It is a privilege to be invited into a home and to be able to care for a newborn at night so that new parents can sleep and be ready to meet the joys and challenges of the next day.

Beth Ann Martin
Birth doula, postpartum doula, certified lactation educator
Hi, I’m Beth Ann! Originally from Northern Virginia, I now live and call North Carolina home. Maternal health has been a longtime passion of mine and the passion keeps igniting the more I study. During college, I experienced a life-changing moment while working on humanitarian efforts in Uganda, Africa with a safe house for women and children. This was further confirmation I was being led to women’s health, and specifically, a career as a doula and lactation counselor.
I received my Master’s Degree in 2018 in Public Health with a focus on women and children’s health and the growing health disparities. During that time, I had incredible professors that instilled the beauty of serving others. I am a trained birth doula and a Certified Postpartum Doula through DONA International. I am also a Certified Lactation Education Counselor with UC San Diego.
When I am not doula-ing or providing lactation support, you can find me in the kitchen creating a new recipe, at my favorite wine bar – The Tasting Room, riding my peloton or snuggled up with my fur-child, Nelson MeowDoula and a good book. I aspire to help the birthing person throughout their pregnancy while maintaining a positive and empowering environment. I look forward to working with you as you transition through pregnancy, birth, and your postpartum journey.
