Congratulations on your recent pregnancy! Having a doula at your birth will help ease your anxiety and fears that you might have and replace them with positivity and confidence to conquer your birth! It wasn’t until my 2nd birth how I realized how important having a doula was to my birth team. The support the women provided me with my second birth gave me my passion to help educate, advocate and empower other women! Joy Spencer and I are a team of doulas. We work as a team to provide more support for your birth! We both completed our training in July of 2018 with DONA International and are in the process of certification. We’d love to meet with you and discuss how we can support you and make this very special time in your life as positive as possible.

My wife and I recently welcomed our second son into the world with the help of Joy and Krista. When we found From Bump To Birth, they had just begun offering their services. From our first meeting with them to our postnatal visit and all the important things in between, we felt like we were cared for by two people who had been doing this for years. These two wonderful, caring, attentive, and knowledgeable women truly have a calling for the art of being a doula.
All of my wife's needs, wants, and hopes for her labor were priorities that were equally shared by Joy and Krista. At every turn, they managed our labor and delivery with ease and composure that cannot be understated. At one point, even our midwife and nurses commented on how well our doulas worked with us and each other.
Our delivery was done in a hospital with our first son, a toddler, attending. There was a seamless ebb and flow to the entire process with myself or one of them stepping in to talk him through what was happening with Mommy, make sure his needs were also met, or to just sit and play trucks for a few minutes. Having our new big brother there to experience that moment with us was something that my wife and I are always going to remember. Our doulas made that happen by creating a stress free and comforting environment for all of us and we will be forever grateful for that.
This was our first experience with doulas. We had no idea what we were getting or who we would be sharing this moment with. Joy and Krista guided us through every step and clearly set a high standard for themselves. They were a natural fit into a role that my wife and I didn't even know we needed filled.
Krista's enthusiasm for being a doula was obvious from the start. Her warmth and positivity were present throughout every minute we spent with her.
They are an outstanding team and we would never hesitate in recommending them to anyone.
Krista is so amazing what she does! Both Krista and Joy are amazing! They have educated me about the birthing process and advise me based on my specific needs. They are so kind and friendly! I feel like they are a real part of our family if not extremely good friends because of their honest caring nature throughout my pregnancy!
I totally wouldn't ever go through another child bearing/birthing experience without these two!
We met them for a first prenatal appointment, they went over their services and what expectations we might have as well as our "birth plan". They provided us with tons of articles and worksheets and handouts about a wide range of topical issues I had questions on, which was both impressive and helpful!!
Then second they are super responsive to any question I have and still do!
Third, they came out to our house and showed us stretches and exercises and coached me on the labor process.
She sat with me while I was scared and tired through a 30 hour birthing process, and has been super supportive mentally and emotionallly.
Having a Krista as a doula for my home birth was a HUge blessing not only to me, but for my family! When she arrived at my house, she could just see my face and she KNEW what I needed She never left my side, and not only provided physical help, but emotional support as well! While in transition, I was able to focus with her words of encouragemen. And the pain was minimal with Krista’s knowledge of pressure points. This was our 11th any, and NEVER have I had Such a great experience! my husband was able to my focal point because of Krista’s wonderful service to us. I cannot say enough wonderful things about her heart and passion for helping women during this time!
