ABOUT US

Bea and Sarah are actively practicing professional doulas and homebirth midwife assistants in Colorado Springs, CO.  Both began attending births in 2012.  Sarah and Bea co-founded The Doula Circle in 2015 and currently lead some of Colorado Springs most experienced doulas.  They have attended births at Evans Hospital, Memorial North, Memorial Central, St. Francis, Mountain Midwifery Birth Center, The Denver Birth Center, and countless home births.  Sarah & Bea combined have attended over 400 births, from unmedicated vaginal, medicated vaginal, vaginal twins and cesarean births.  Bea & Sarah have traveled the country over the years to attend various trainings led by the top figures in the birth world today, including The Farm Midwives, Gena Kerby the Rebozo Queen, Pro Doula, Birthing From Within’s Viginia Borboro, and Robert Newman of Calm Birth. 

The Best of the Best

Bea and Sarah have combined the best and most useful of the trainings they have attended, as well as their hands on experience, in order to create a training unlike any other! The things you will learn in these trainings will be the cornerstones of your doula practice.
