Hello! I’m Shannon.

I have lived in the Kansas City, MO area for most of my life. I have been married to my husband, Sam, for 8 years and we have 3 young boys. They are wild and fun and I absolutely love being mom to them. I am a former elementary school teacher and I am blessed to now be able to stay home with my children when I am not at a birth or meeting with clients, of course! We currently live in North Kansas City, MO and have fallen in love with this area of the city.

I love exploring new cities, being surrounded by nature, baking, music, chatting with friends over a good cup of coffee, and of course all things pregnancy and birth!

My interest in birth began at a young age when I dreamed of being a neo-natal nurse, caring for the most vulnerable of babies. As an adult, my interest in pregnancy and birth grew especially after I became pregnant with my own child. I used a doula for the birth of both my children and it made such a difference in the way I felt before, during, and after my birth. I felt confident, supported, and completely cared for. I knew there was something very special about the role of a doula in pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. I quickly realized that becoming a doula was something I was very passionate about. I am now a DONA trained doula who believes all women should feel confident, supported, and cared for during their birth. I believe all birth is beautiful and miraculous no matter how it happens. My desire is to serve and support women however they need in one of the most transformative times in their lives as they bring new life into the world.
