SEQUOIA BIRTH SERVICES
The Sequoia tree: Majestic, Strong, Resilient. I believe women share these qualities in life, particularly in pregnancy and birth.
A deep rooted and ancient tree, the Sequoia withstands powerful winds and fierce storms. We, too, can withstand anything; especially with the support of those we can rely on.
As your Birth Doula, I would be honored to assist you and your loved ones in the welcoming of your newest addition. Whether you're opting for a natural birth, medicated labor, or a cesarean, the benefits of having a trained labor companion are significant. Research has shown reduced unplanned cesareans, decreased unplanned use of pain medications, and improved mother-baby bonding just to name a few! Take a look at the resources page for more information on the advantages of labor companions!
Get to know me!
My name is Kelsey Evenstad and I am a professionally trained Birth Doula through DONA International.
I am married to my best friend and together we have a handsome little boy. In addition to our boy, our family includes our loving dog, Bayli. My son, my birth experience, and my life long enthusiasm for all things pregnancy and birth have inspired me to pursue my career as a professional labor companion. My passion is supporting women in their choices and encouraging them to use their inherent power to achieve the birth they've envisioned.
"Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers; strong, competent, capable mothers that trust themselves and trust their inner strength."
