About Birth is about creating positive birth experiences.
I am Meagan Thompson, born and raised in Kentucky.
My son was born with the help of an incredible midwife, birth doula and nurse. The experience was so transformative.
Not only did it help me "own" my strength as a woman, wife and mother, but it also inspired me to help other people in their birth journeys as well.
My postpartum period was very difficult, as I struggled to adjust to the unknowns of being a mother and staying home with my son. However, I think that it would have been immensely rougher if I hadn’t had such a positive birth experience.
When we had our daughter, we used a doula again (yes, a doula is helpful even when you have a birth under your belt). It turned out to be a much different birth experience than the first. My doula’s presence was absolutely necessary in making me and my partner feel connected, and helping me be as comfortable and relaxed as possible.
My desire for every pregnant person to find a doula with the right combination of experience, personality, and style of practice led me to start About Birth, LLC. I believe that doulas are incredible partners to help create positive birth experiences. I’d love to explore how we can work together to make this happen for you!
