Hello! My name is Madeline and I own Bloom Birth Services in Bend Oregon.
I am the birth doula you can look to and know I am invested in you as well as your well being and experience.
It is becoming more and more evident that how a person experiences birth sets the foundation for the rest of their life. How a mother feels and responds in pregnancy and birth is passed along to her child.
I believe that your desires and needs deserve caring attention. I believe that you know what's best for you and your baby and help bring focus back to that.
I believe that parents deserve to know all of their options and have a voice in deciding what's best. I believe in you and am here to guide you along the journey.
I am a certified GentleBirth instructor which enables me to offer my clients and community the tools of mindfulness, mediation and hypnosis for their births.
Other things about me: I was born and raised in Oregon. I have three children, two born at home and one at St. Charles, Bend.
I graduated from Oregon State University with my B.S. in Human Development and Family Sciences. My love for being a doula and all things birth has spurred me to want to study to become a midwife in the future.
Maddy was my doula for my first baby. Little did I know how much I NEEDED a doula. She was knowledgeable, caring and listened truly to what my husband and I wanted and needed. She continues to support me as I learn to be a mother, which has been tough. I think everyone should have a great doula, like Maddy! - Amanda
