Certified Birth, Bereavement and
Processing & Documenting Childbirth
Take My Hand
Misty's approach is to come alongside you for continuous support by offering time to slow down, validate, offer resources, and friendship through follow up and individualized support the entire time. She offers to provide physical, emotional, and informational support/resources.
She specializes in helping families work through and document childbirth from an emotional perspective. Distinctively supporting families suffering from birth loss, diagnosis, or uncertainty -at any stage- by working through with less trauma and regret.
It is her vision for more people to be aware of what a bereavement doula does/doesn't do so if they find themselves in need, they know what services exist. She serves in-person in the Tri-Cities area and virtually worldwide.
