Andrea Paul – Certified Doula and Educator

Andrea has been a practicing doula for over a decade and is very passionate about helping families. She creates a calm atmosphere and helps families to navigate their new family dynamic. She loves the variety that birth support offers and how unique each person’s preferences are. Whatever your birth preferences are, Andrea looks forward to supporting your choices. Andrea started her career as a birth doula when she saw a gap in support. As her love for supporting families grew she became a postpartum doula to help families manage and grow their confidence with their new baby(ies). She then became an infant sleep coach and lactation educator. Helping families reach their goals is incredibly rewarding.

When Andrea is not busy being a doula she is helping new doulas as a trainer and mentor. She enjoys playing with her 2 daughters, husband, and pets. She loves swimming, spending time outdoors, reading, and watching movies!
