Courtney is a trained Birth Doula through Dona International and working towards her certification.
Hello, expecting family! My name is Courtney (Coco) Gillenwater, and I'm a professional Birth Doula! All of my life, I knew I wanted to help families build and expand their legacies. I am so grateful that I took a deeper dive into what a Doula is. I'm a professional hype man who is educated in childbirth and I love it! All I've ever wanted to do was support a mother and family during their entire pregnancy, no matter if they chose to deliver unmedicated, medicated, in a hospital, or at home with a midwife. I love being a Birth Doula, and the sensitive power behind it.
My job as a Birth Doula is to give the Birther reassurance, comfort, emotional guidance, and to stay by the laboring woman's side. I enjoy encouraging mothers to trust the process that their bodies were designed for. The birthing process should be handled with much love, carefulness, gentleness, and grace. I hope that I can assist you on this beautiful journey.
