Sarah Fogle - Passionate doula, mother, wife & 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 5 years of personal breastfeeding experience along with my lactation training during doula certification. 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 women; to become a doula.
I began my journey to become a doula in April 2015. I am a Certified Doula through CBI, I am a trained Placenta Specialist through pbiU. I am also the Leader for the ICAN of Southeastern Illinois Chapter, a nursing student at the #1 Nursing Program in the state of IL (SIC) along with my CNA certification. I am also a Certified Birth & Bereavement Doula through StillBirthDay to support families during loss at any stage of pregnancy. I am a member of 100% doula business training. I am passionate about and have a special focus & training on VBAC (vaginal birth after a cesarean), breastfeeding, cloth diapering and baby wearing. I am a Student nurse at SIC, the number one nursing school program in the state of Illinois. My services include birth and postpartum doula care, childbirth education,breastfeeding support and placenta encapsulation.

No matter if it's your first, fifth or tenth child, every birth should be amazing and should bring couples together and strengthen single mothers alike.

My name is Tina and I first became a mother in July 2009 to my daughter and again in
September 2014 to my son and am due with #3 in Feb 2018. It was through my own personal birth experiences and hearing stories from other women 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. Bringing a baby into the world is one of the greatest accomplishments and each mother deserves respect and support, no matter what her choices are.
I had a vaginal birth with an epidural with my daughter and had an elective induction at 42 weeks with my son with a failed epidural which ended in a cesarean. During the first few weeks of his life I was able to breastfeed but also suffered from severe postpartum depression. In March 2015, I had a miscarriage and didn't know I was pregnant at the time which made my depression worsen but with the support of my friends, family and doctor have been able to heal. Because of these 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.
Tina is available for births and placenta clients and attends home and hospital births in the Evansville, IN & Owensboro, KY area.
My name is Molly, I am 29 years old 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. My goal is to support you no matter what birth plan you feel is best for you; scheduling a c-section, giving birth in your living room or in a tub, no medication in the hospital or all of the medication!
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 will be enrolling to be a placenta specialist soon to better serve clients. I am very excited to serve in my surrounding communities as a doula after all “Peace on Earth begins with Birth” - Jeannine Baker
Molly is available for birth clients, home or hospital in the Marion, Carbondale and Mt. Vernon IL, and Paducah, KY areas.
My name is Taylor Rumsey. I always knew that I wanted to do something in the medical field but I wasn’t exactly sure in what capacity. Through my work as a CNA, my passion for taking care of people was confirmed. However, it wasn’t until after the birth of my brother 5 years ago that I decided that I wanted to work with mothers and babies. As birth often does, my birth experience has given me a new perspective on life. And more importantly helped me realize that my true passion for taking care of people would be best practiced with mothers and babies.
My daughter’s birth was induced at 39 weeks with the use of an epidural. I believe everyone’s birth experience is unique and deserved of a compassionate and caring hand to aid in the delivery of one’s own tiny miracle. My journey is just beginning as I have started training with Childbirth International and my excitement is building as I train to become a Doula with the ladies here at Trinity Doula Services.
Taylor is available for home and hospital births in the Marion, Mt. Vernon, Carbondale IL, Evansville IN & Paducah KY areas.
"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!"
