Once Upon A Doula
As a professional Doula, I will work by your side as you prepare to give birth; present in each moment with a spirit of love and compassion. I'll provide the emotional, spiritual, educational and physical support you need not only during labor, but throughout your pregnancy and postpartum as well.
Why I’m a Doula
The experience of pregnancy and birth has evolved over the years, especially in today’s modern era. I believe that the need for caring, sensitive and knowledgeable support during this time is becoming more and more apparent. I see every pregnancy and birth as a miracle and as a Doula I feel honored to be able to contribute my expertise to women and families.
What I Do
Every family is unique, so I offer a variety of doula services personalized for each birthing experience. Regardless of what you choose, we will dive into your beliefs and expectations around labor and birth. Together, we will explore your physical and emotional strengths and limitations to ensure you’re completely prepared.
Informative and Compassionate
Here for You
"All I can say is that my 18 hour labor would have been much harder if I didn"t have the emotional, mental and physical support from my Doula Brianna! It was such a blessing from the Lord that I found her when I did!"
“The care I received from Once Upon a Doula was amazing! She made sure I was prepared for labor and delivery and helped me come up with a personal plan. I was able to relax knowing that I had such a great support system during the entire process. I couldn't have asked for a better Doula!"
“Brianna is so attentive, so calm, and so knowledgeable! Our birth process could not have gone any better thanks to her! She read my mind all the way through the process, and was an amazing advocate for me and a buffer and brought peace to the entire room! She knew what to do even when my husband didn't, but made sure that he was part of the whole process as much as possible!”

To Carissa Sabrina
O precious newborn in our home
Gift of God's great love divine.
May caring angels smile on you
Baby mine, O Baby mine.
Then as you walk the path of life,
May God's grace on your path shine
and keep you ever in his will
Baby mine, O, Baby mine.
I may never see your baby face, or hold you in my arms.
I may never kiss your tiny toes, or tell you of your charms.
But knowing you have parents who love you as they do
and who in turn do love our God, helps to relieve my blue.
Every night I'll say a prayer, God keep you from all harms",
and fill you with his deep deep love as you shelter in his arms.
Before I Knew Your Name
To the Baby We Lost
Before I knew your name,
Before I saw your chin and your nose,
Before I counted your fingers and toes,
I asked heaven for someone as wonderful as you,
And ever prayer and wish came true.
I dreamed of you…
Before I knew your name.
I never held you in my arms or whispered in your ear,
of how I love to hold you close my darling baby deer.
For months I felt your beating heart close beneath my own,
flesh of my flesh, heart of my heart and bone of my very bone.
I felt you kick, I felt you turn, I long to see your face.
Would you have your daddy's ears? Wear Levi's or pink lace?
I never saw nor held you dear nor whispered of my love.
But, with my caring Savior near I know that up above, he holds you now in loving arms and I can let you go.
