Ruth Lundsten | CD(DONA)
I have been a certified birth doula since 2010. I attended birth doula training through Childbirth Education Specialists and received my birth doula certification from DONA International. In 2013, I had the wonderful opportunity of attending the Midwife Assistant Workshop at The Farm Midwifery Center in Tennessee with Ina May Gaskin. I have attended both home and hospital births, twin births, VBAC births, Cesarean births, medicated and unmedicated births.
Birth is a loving, intimate and empowering event that a woman will remember and reflect back on throughout her life. It is the beginning of a wonderful transition from womanhood to motherhood. I am very passionate about birth and feel very honored each time I am invited to attend a birth. My role as a doula is to assist you and your partner in achieving the birth you want and to support your goals and wishes. I will guide, support and nurture you throughout your labor and delivery and look forward to sharing in the miracle of your birth with you; one that you will cherish for a lifetime.
“Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers – strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.”
