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.
Birth doula, postpartum doula, Lamaze certified childbirth educator
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.
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.
