  • Rebecca Dilley CLC,Birth and Postpartum Doula

    Birth Doula Profile Meet Rebecca Dilley CLC,Birth and Postpartum Doula Birth Doula, Postpartum Doula, Breastmilk jewelry I am blessed to be the mom to two fantastic kids. My children make my life as beautiful an adventure as they do at keeping me on my toes. As a wife, I have the privilege of being married to a great guy, who not only puts up with my birth enthusiasm and but also my crazy on-call working hours. My journey as a doula, in some ways, started with the love and wisdom of my mother. She taught me to believe in my own strength and abilities and to trust my instinct and my heart. With the birth of my daughter in 2012, her words truly impacted me in ways I had not expected. I realized that not only could my birth have been better but that all women deserve to have a birth where they take the lead in how their bodies bring their babies into this world. That knowledge weighed on me and with the upcoming birth of my son, in 2016, I decided to look into ways I could take the lead and that guided me to hiring a doula. Having a doula was so very beneficial and it changed the way I looked at birth and as a result launched me into a career of being doula, myself. I became a DONA trained doula in 2017 and with my newly gained confidence and knowledge quickly started to attend births. I went on to complete more certifications, including but not limited to, The Matrona's Holistic Birth and Postpartum Certification, the Certified Lactation Consultant training (CLC) and a certification in creating and selling Breast Milk Jewelry.

  • Stephanie Kiesow-Edoh, MA, MPH, CLE

    Birth Doula Profile Meet Stephanie Kiesow-Edoh, MA, MPH, CLE Birth Doula, Postpartum Doula, Certified Lactation Educator Inspired by the power of presence and guidance within the birthing sphere, I believe the role of a doula is to support families during one of the most transformative moments in their lives. Over the past ten years I have worked with families and individuals from different backgrounds with the aim of empowering women through evidence-based data. A true believer of both data and intuition, I find that there often resides a place for both. I received both a Master of Arts in Developmental Psychology and a Master of Public Health degree from the University of California, Los Angeles. As a strong advocate for gender equality and reproductive justice, I have had experience working on maternal and child health projects both domestically and abroad (topics including: menstrual health, pregnancy and postpartum education, stress and anxiety during pregnancy, and family relationships). In support of my own breastfeeding journey and to assist others, I also became a Lactation Educator, certified through the University of California, San Diego. My daughter, Calla, is one of my greatest inspirations to my work as a doula and serves as a continuous reminder of the sacredness of birth work. When I’m not at a birth, I enjoy spending time with my family, getting outdoors, and exploring new sites. I look forward to connecting with you!
