Courtnee Booker | Doula in training
Hello! My name is Courtnee and I am a Birth Arts International trained Birth and Postpartum Doula; I also offer belly binding services. I am a San Diego transplant with a bachelor’s in Anthropology. I have been setting roots in the Sacramento area since 2010 where I have had the pleasure of marrying my college sweetheart and growing our family.
My journey as a doula began shortly after the birth of my first child. My birth experience was a sacred and transformative moment in my life where I was able to witness my own inner power and internalize the importance of having a supportive birth and postpartum team to depend on in such a vulnerable and intimate time. From that moment on I knew I wanted to help support new mothers and their growing families in the way that I was supported. In a way that was non-judgmental, kind, and life affirming.
There is no greater gift than to see a maiden blossom into a mother who knows her options and feels confident in her choices. My birth philosophy is simple; no matter how a woman gives birth to her child, she should be an active participant and the primary decision maker when it comes to her care. Her thoughts and concerns regarding her safety and the safety of her baby should be met with compassionate understanding and unwavering support.
My goal as your doula is to foster an atmosphere where you and your partner can remain calm and comfortable during your birthing time so that you can meet the moment with strength and resilience. I will do my best to respond to both of your needs as you go through the peaks and valleys of childbirth and parenting together. I want you to have the satisfying birth you deserve and will remember fondly for the rest of your life!
