About Me - Hilary Witcher


Pregnancy and childbirth have been my passion since I first found out I was pregnant over 12 years ago. My birth and postpartum experiences - both wonderful and challenging - fed my spirit and inspired me to give back to other new parents. This passion has stayed with me through the years as I've worked with families and my own children have grown. My enthusiasm for helping people paired with my love for all things related to new family needs, fits perfectly with the work I do.

I completed my Birth and Postpartum Doula training with DONA International and certified as a Breastfeeding Specialist through Lactation Education Resources.  I am excited to help you and your family along your journey of parenthood in an open, non-judgmental manner. From pregnancy through birth and beyond, my support, knowledge, and experience can help you achieve a positive birth experience and become the parents you know you can be. I can also ease the many transitions that a new baby can bring, help build confidence in your parenting abilities, and provide support for all your new family needs. I look forward to helping and supporting you along this joyful, exciting, and amazing adventure! 


"Hilary is a natural-born doula! She was a great support for me and my husband, always taking initiatives to be helpful. With her we had the intimate, joy-filled, worshipful, peaceful birth experience we always wanted!!"
