Brandi Brewer, Doula

There's nothing that captures the same beauty of a new life entering this world. It's a unique experience that is truly unparalleled to any other.

With three children of my own, I can relate to the fears and joys that accompanied the three most treasured days of my life. That's why I've decided to become a professional Doula, offering a hand to women as they transition into motherhood. I honestly love helping people and making mothers feel at ease during their pregnancy, birth, and postpartum period. And I find it such a pleasure to be able to experience the delight of a child entering the world as part of my profession. In fact, I don't really consider it a profession — it's an amazing gift to be able to serve women in this way. To be able to see the way they look at their sweet newborn for the first time and bond as mother and baby.

Currently, I live in sunny Ben Lomond, CA, where I spend my waking hours (and sometimes sleeping hours) with my three adorable children, supportive husband, and our dog. I'm also passionate about experiencing new places, experimenting in the kitchen, homeschooling, and volunteering at our local children and family centre.

Having birthed three children with three very different birthing experiences, I know first-hand the questions and concerns that a woman experiences during her pregnancy and birthing journey. With my DONA and ECE certifications I am triply prepared for assisting women who desire a smooth and content transition into a radiant motherhood.

I love what I do. Really. And I am so blessed to be part of so many lives. Truly, I couldn't ask for a better "job."
