Sheri is a former nurse with over 20 years experience including obstetrics. After being a stay at home mom for a few years until her children were in school, she certified as a birth doula through Doulas of North America (DONA) in 2013. She has been working as a birth doula, childbirth educator and birth/newborn photographer since then. Her passion is informed and empowering choices in childbirth with the understanding that pregnancy and birth being a normal physiological process are unique to each individual and each birth. Recently, Sheri completed a lactation course which now allows her to provide breastfeeding support. Sheri’s objective in providing these services is to minimize the fear in childbirth so that birth memories will be precious. Along with her husband and two children, Sheri moved to Helena from Alaska in 2016. When she is not witnessing the miracle of birth, Sheri can be found gardening, exploring the great outdoors, knitting or reading a good book.
