 Meet the Doulas


Stacey Bunyar - Birth Doula

 

Birth Doula - Stacey believes in encouraging mothers to trust their bodies, their own instincts,
and the birth process itself. Her hope is to create a calm and nurturing environment allowing the
mother to labor confidently. She helps mothers work through their fears and be more informed
about their options, how to advocate for themselves and help1y/ partners to feel they have the
right tools to be supportive during the birth. Her wish is to spread more happy stories of
childbirth. Every labor can be beautiful and very empowering, while the woman feels safe,
supported and listened to.
Stacey’s doula work began in 2002 when her sister asked her to attend the birth of her niece. It
was a very moving experience to witness and welcome someone into the world. In the ability to
offer her sister a nurturing presence during her birth, a seed was planted. Being a mother of
three (2 vaginal, 1 cesarean) and also having suffered through multiple miscarriages, she finds
it easy to relate to many women. Stacey considers herself a very open-minded, attentive and
good-humored person and finds supporting mothers to be humbling and a true honor.
Stacey’s goal is to help you have a gratifying birth. Her experience helping many women in an
array of different circumstances will help you with define your birth choices and support all your
birth decisions in regards to medical, religious or personal choices. As your doula, she is
committed to providing the individualized support that is right for you.

Carolynn Deshler- Birth Doula & HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Educator

Carolynn has always felt a pull to support people throughout their BIG life moments. When she was pregnant with her first child she discovered a very strong interest in holistic living and became passionate about learning what her birth choices were.

She decided to take HypnoBirthing classes as a means to educate herself and prepare for her birth experience (something she was nervous about!) After having a wonderful and empowering experience using HypnoBirthing for the birth of both of her babies she discovered a strong desire to support, encourage, and educate birthing women!

Carolynn then dove into learning as much as she could and has since completed her training as a professional Birth Doula and certification as a HypnoBirthing® educator. She has also attended workshops on the Rebozo technique and Spinning Babies methods. She is always learning! Her focus is on providing evidence-based, up-to-date information for her clients and creating positive birth stories through unwavering support and encouragement.

It is Carolynn’s belief that every woman’s experience with pregnancy & birth is unique (because it is!) What is right for someone else may not be right for you and vice versa. Because of this she is committed to working with you closely to help you find what works best for YOU. One thing that ALL women universally need during birth is to feel empowered and confident and she is happy to offer her care and support to every family she serves in order to help them carry out their wishes for a beautiful and gentle birthing.

Carolynn loves getting to know new people and finds working with expectant families exciting, fun, and satisfying. She hopes to make it wonderful for you as well.
