Birth Doula Package
Your labor and birth experience matters. Preparing your mind and body for the journey matters. I work with my clients using yoga, Spinning Babies, educational resources and labor practice to help them achieve the birth they are dreaming of. During my 2 visits, we set up your birth plan, discuss the various comfort measures we can use and identify what is most important to you for this birth. My clients often have questions as we dream and make plans so I send them resources from my vast list of evidence based articles, community connections and even offer books from my lending library. I offer this service through Birth it Forward.

Sweet words from previous clients
“Simply put, my biggest fear or worry about participating in childbirth is not being as inceptive or susceptive with particular medical procedures that have changed dramatically since my first child, nearly 20 years ago. So when my spouse suggested utilizing an experienced doula, we put forth serious effort in finding the perfect fit for our needs. That perfect fit for us, Brittney Brownell. She not only sat down with us and worked through our medical concerns but she took the time to educate us on the labor process and introduced techniques to aid with pain while at the hospital. I think the most unexpected perk of having a doula is the peace of mind that there is at least one more person on our team who supports and enforces our family’s medical plans.
For anyone looking for a doula; start with Brittney. Her knowledge will leave you feeling like you have nursing experience. You will be ready.”– Marcus & Shaun, Baby Marcus – Kansas City, Mo
“I don’t know where to begin but thank you so much for being there for me, giving me encouraging words and helping me get through tough times. Even though I gave in to the epidural, I think that was a blessing and my body telling me I need to get one because things were not right. I don’t think I would have made it as far as I did without you there. You just knew what to do as soon as you got there and just got started right away, even with my nurses you knew what to ask for to help me which I was grateful for because I would have asked nor know what to do. I don’t think I will ever get to repay you for what you did for me during my laboring process and even after that. You gave me the birthing process I wanted to experience with Carter but never got, though it took a different route to get Miles here I wouldn’t change anything. So thank you, our family appreciates you and love you for everything that you did. You were my angel😘😘”– Santana Smith – Belton, MO
“Brittney thank you for everything!!!! You are truly amazing.”– Laura
“Thank you. You guys were really helpful.”
“Our time with Brittney changed the whole pregnancy and birthing experience. Doctors can be so impersonal and it can be hard to even contact them or to hear back in between visits. I loved having someone to text when I needed to talk or wanted advice during my pregnancy journey. I loved Brittney showing us how to prepare for birth and working with my husband, equipping him to be a wonderful birth partner. But even without all of that, hiring Brittney would have been worth it just to have her in labor and delivery. Having her and my husband there to support me made all the difference in a rough delivery. Her calm manner and encouragement brought me through something I didn’t feel like I could do. She adapted to the changing birth plan, but helped me fight for the parts that were most important. We’re forever grateful for the positive impact she made on our little family.”
