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.

I’ve been a doula in Salt Lake City, UT, since 2003 and have supported over 1,000 couples during childbirth. I recently moved to the Jamestown, NC area in 2018. I have been DONA certified and have assisted at births in 18 area hospitals, 5 local birth centers, and many homes. I enjoy spending time with each couple, helping them learn what to expect and gain useful tools for positive childbirth. I’ve served on the Utah Doula Association board for 15 years, most recently as its president in 2018. I am an ICEA childbirth educator and enjoy affecting positive change through empowering education. I have also supported many families in the postpartum period with overnight care. I love, love, love this work and feel honored to be a part of this journey. My clients and students have taught me so much and enriched my life. I have five awesome kids who keep me busy and I’m married to a wonderful man who supports me in every endeavor. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Integrated Studies from Weber State University.

I have been involved in working with families for more than 25 years in various capacities. In my experience as a parent educator, I have come to believe that parenting starts before birth – and that the birth experience itself is one of the best opportunities to help families start out on the right foot.

Childbirth signifies the birth of a family, and I believe that if a new family can be given a positive, respectful, empowering and memorable experience during childbirth – we have done a good thing! As a certified birth (since 2010) and postpartum doula (since 2005) with DONA, I know first-hand the benefits of support, education, experience, and encouragement that new parents gain from doulas. I obtained my Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator (LCCE) in April 2010 while completing the birth doula certification requirements. I believe having my LCCE has been a perfect complement to being a birth doula. I am also excited to be a nationally Certified H.U.G. Teacher.   In the spring of 2012 I completed the North Carolina Lactation Educator Training Program.

Postpartum Doula, Birth Doula, Hypnobabies Instructor

Hello, I’m Nichole. I was born and raised in Hawaii before moving to North Carolina. It is my goal to help as many families as I can, experience joy and empowerment on their journey through pregnancy birth and parenthood. I’m beyond thrilled and honored to help expecting couples, as a Childbirth Educator and Doula, learn how to experience, peaceful, easy and joyous birthings. After the birth of my two children a passion was ignited in me and I started my journey into the birth world. I attended my first DONA class in 2013. In March of 2017 I completed my Hypnobabies® Hypno-Doula training course to become a Hypnobabies® Childbirth Hypnosis Doula, and in June of 2019 I became a Hypnobabies Certified Hypnosis Instructor. I am also trained as a postpartum doula with IPPA. In the midst of all that I have been raising my two beautiful boys. When they were smaller I enjoyed cloth diapering and baby-wearing. My current joys include yoga, sewing, hiking, trying new recipes, and talking to others about the joys of birth, babies and breastfeeding.

Hadera Lowrance, 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.
