Having another baby? Change your experience.

Doula Services & Personal Training with The Movement Doula.

Kelsey Budge Doula and Personal Trainer

You deserve support the 2nd time around. Here's why I love working with 2nd timers as a doula and personal trainer...

*While I specialize in 2nd time parents, I absolutely work with first timers as well!

There is a vulnerability in childbearing that requires a nurturing, sympathetic and honest support team to hold space for your vision. Finding your voice to advocate for yourself to receive proper care can be a challenge.

I experienced a vast difference between the births of my two children; the first believing that trust the experts over my intuition, and my second birth when I found my voice. Through an overhaul of lifestyle changes and self-exploration, the birth of my second child was fully my own experience.

I understand it can be overwhelming and paralyzing to ask for support. As your birth doula I will help you find your confident voice and understand your options.

Guiding you through movement and mindset in pregnancy, birth, and your 40 days of recovery so you never lose YOU.

Birth Doula & Postpartum Doula Services

Do you want this birth experience to be different?

As a second-timer you may have more confidence in newborn care, but having another baby presents new challenges. You have to hold space for a different birth experience, discover your identity again and help sibling(s) to understand their new role. As a birth doula and postpartum doula I help you explore your intentions for this birth, address previous birth trauma, devise a 40 day postpartum plan, discuss sibling care, assist with meal preparation, do light household work, run errands, validate your feelings and provide holistic resources so you can give yourself permission to be present with your baby and celebrate your new family.
