Birth Fee: Not specified
Fee Details: Congratulations on your upcoming journey! Ever since my own experience of having to find my voice in the birth process, I have had a passion for supporting families in doing the same. Along with being a doula, I am also a midwife assistant at Beach Cities Midwifery. We usually will have 1-2 prenatal visits where we discuss your goals for your birthing time, comfort strategies, all the things! I am always available for questions, referrals, even if you just need someone to listen along the way. I have experience in hospital, birth center, and home births and support you in whatever choices you make. I love hypno births, and have two hypno babies of my own. :) We also set up a time to meet in the days/weeks after baby arrives to discuss baby care basics/healing/ or just to process the birth together. Rates vary, please reach out to discuss and ask about discounted rates for singles parents, or survivors of domestic abuse.

Working with Whitney was an amazing experience! My husband and I have been calling her the MVP of our Hypnobabies birth team. She showed up in a pivotal moment when my midwife was underestimating how far I had progressed while laboring at home. This was my first baby, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Thankfully Whitney arrived and was able to tell that I was about ready to push my little one out and helped me get to the hospital in time to have a safe, natural, Hypnobabies birth. Her support was invaluable in maintaining my self-hypnosis and utilizing the Hypnobabies natural birth techniques I had spent so much time preparing to use. When I wasn't sure what to do or what I needed, Whitney was able to step in and give direction and support to help me and my husband maintain focus and use our hypnosis tools. She was always available for questions and was great about checking in and providing resources as needed leading up to my birthing time. Additionally, Whitney's personal experience with Hypnobabies and knowledge of how to support hypno-mamas was evident in her confidence using the techniques and her verbal cues throughout the birth process. Whitney's calm confidence and supportive presence was such a blessing during my birthing journey! We hope to use Whitney as our doula again in the future, she is truly wonderful!
