Sarah Fogle - Passionate doula, mother, Nurse & friend
My name is Sarah Fogle. I have four beautiful children. I started studying pregnancy and childbirth in 2005 when I was pregnant with my first daughter. I have 10 years of personal and peer support experience with lactation. My personal birth experiences include one elective induction with an epidural, a cesarean due to footling breech presentation, an augmented VBAC with a failed epidural and an epidural free natural labor VBAC. My journey to VBAC two times solidified my decision to become something that would help, encourage and support birthing families; to become a doula. My goal is to change the world, one birth at a time.
I began my journey to become a doula in April 2015. I am a Certified Birth Doula through CBI, a certified Birth and Bereavement Doula through StillBirthday, a Licensed Practical Nurse in the state of IL, specializing in pediatrics. I am also a trained Placenta Specialist through pbiU. I have been the Leader for the previous ICAN of Southeastern Illinois Chapter. I am passionate about and have a special focus & training on VBAC (vaginal birth after a cesarean), breastfeeding, cloth diapering and baby wearing. My services include birth and postpartum doula care, childbirth education, breastfeeding support and placenta encapsulation and bengkung belly binding in too many areas to list. Just ask if I am available!

My name is Tina and I am mom to three wonderful kids. It was through my own personal birth experiences that I became interested in becoming a doula, to give women the support they need to help reduce their risk of postpartum depression or being unsatisfied with their birthing experience. Because of my own birthing and postpartum experiences, my goal is to emotionally and physically support those who have similar experiences. I have special interest in VBACs and postpartum depression.
I am Certified in Birth and Bereavement through Stillbirthday. I have training in Placenta Encapsulating, printing, and tinctures as well. My hope as a Doula is give a woman and her family all the support that they may need through pregnancy, labor and delivery, and postpartum along with those who have a loss during any stage of pregnancy.

My name is Molly and I was born to be a doula; to support, educate, and empower women through their birthing and parenting experiences! I am a mom to four boys and have achieved my goal of having natural childbirth to my last three and had an epidural with my first. I went to my second birth unprepared for what was about to happen as I was planning an epidural, but that didn’t happen. It was amazing! The first thing I said was “I can’t believe I just did that!” I felt so strong! It was also scary, I was unprepared and it made the experience frustrating, scary and I felt helpless. I want to help women avoid these feelings about their own birth. I want to support and empower you to have an amazing experience that you will cherish for the rest of your days! I would also love to support you after your birth! I’m well equipped through experience and training to assist with feeding baby, both breast or bottle. I have a passion for cloth diapering & babywearing and am prepared to help you on those journeys too. I have vast experience with taking care babies and children thanks to having my own children as well as running a daycare for several years. I love learning about pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and continue to be amazed at how strong and powerful women are! I am a certified through Childbirth International as a birth doula and a Placenta Specialist through PBiU I am very excited to serve in my surrounding communities as a doula.

After the births of her oldest children in 2010 and 2013, she found herself alone, angry, and traumatized. It was then that Kirsten realized she had an intense desire to help educate birthing persons and to support them during their pregnancies and births as a doula. She then went on to have 2 beautiful, healing home births in 2015 and 2016.
Because of her experiences, Kirsten is incredibly passionate about aiding other parents who are coping with birth trauma, and has even co-founded a support group for this purpose. She also plans to peruse midwifery in the future.
Kirsten specializes in assisting LGBTQ+ families, survivors of sexual assault, and people living with mental illness. She is also a wealth of knowledge regarding natural health, vegan/vegetarian living, babywearing, and gentle parenting.

Hi, I'm Nicole!
Birth work has been my passion since I discovered it in 2008. My love for it has grown and evolved with each child and each change in family dynamics. A love for placenta work and then postpartum support followed!
I have seven amazing children that occupy most of my time, but I enjoy gardening, reading and watching documentaries.
I am currently available for birth, placenta encapsulation and postpartum services in the Metro East, St. Louis, Mo area.
I am a DONA trained doula new to the area. By day, a graphic designer but I’ve always felt fascinated by pregnancy and birth! I am a strong advocate for POC/LGBTQ+/minorities in the birth place. I aim to provide knowledge and resources to birthers and partners to help empower them throughout their pregnancy, labor and birth journey. All birthers deserve the support of a doula!

*Bio coming soon
Erica Burton is a born and raised southern Illinoisan. In the middle of her own TTC "trying to conceive" journey. Erica's passion has led her to help with IUI / IVF emotional assistance and LGBTQ+ families. She has also helped clients with natural childbirth trauma, vbac, and disabilities. She has been a doula with Childbirth International for 3 years. As a photographer, and started her birth journey years ago.
As a photographer, especially birth, you get to witness something so emotional and magical. After my first labor/birth experience with a Doula helping, I knew that was what I was meant to do. I always wanted to help mothers in labor, but didn't know how as a photographer. I knew there had to be something more. After my first doula client, I knew there was no turning back.
Erica offers birth photography packages within her doula work and serves the Southern Illinois region.
"I loved Sarah as soon as I met her! She is very personable, sweet and she really knows her stuff! I wouldn't have made it through drug free childbirth without her by my side cheering me on!"
