Penny, Birth Doula in Winchester, Va
Practice Member serving families in Winchester, Loudoun and the Shenandoah Valley as a Birth doula
Raised in the Shenandoah Valley, Penny has always been called to help those who need it most. After feeling unheard and overwhelmed during her first daughter's birth, she was determined to do whatever it took to not let that happen again. She transferred halfway through her pregnancy to Premier Birth Center and hired Virginia is for Doulas for her second daughter's birth, and was so inspired by the phenomenal care she received by her midwives and doulas throughout pregnancy, labor, and postpartum, that she decided to become a doula herself. She is passionate about making sure her clients do not feel judged, but instead feel empowered and confident in any decisions they make.
Penny has a bachelor's degree in psychology and an associate degree in education. She formerly worked as an aide for children and adolescents with psychiatric and behavioral disorders, and also worked in home health care for the elderly as a Certified Nursing Assistant. She is a Birth Doula through Birth Boot Camp. Penny currently lives in Gore with her husband, two daughters, and a cat.
