Welcome birthing families! I’m Deirdre and I was inspired during my pregnancy to learn about all things birth. I attended classes, read books, talked with doulas and midwives, toured birth facilities and interviewed doctors. I realized how much I enjoyed talking to others about birth and learning from every mother’s personal story. I provide continuous guidance, encouragement, and support to your family throughout pregnancy, birth and postpartum. I’m overjoyed to have found my calling as a passionate, positive birth Doula and educator! I am committed to your journey, your birth, your choices and your family. My most cherished time is spent with my husband and son. We listen to music, enjoy good food and laugh often.

We love empowering women and their partners through the entire process of birth! Whether you choose pain medication or not, induction or spontaneous labor, it is our belief that your choices should be informed and respected. We are very passionate about you being the decision-maker in your childbirth experience. As a witness, a doula is there to protect your sacred space and encourage you to achieve the birth experience you desire. Please contact us to schedule a free interview where you (and your partner) can ask questions and get to know Paula, Maggie, or Anna better!

I live with my husband in Central Minnesota and I have 3 adult kids that were natural births in a hospital with midwives. I'm very interested in healthy foods, natural medicine and living life simply. As a doula, I get to help women do the important work of having their babies in the way that best suits them and their families. I've been told that I bring encouragement and peace to my work. My experience includes working with doctors, nurses and midwives at birth centers, hospitals and home births.
