My name is Amanda Jones although most know me as Mandie. I am a certified birth doula (certified as of January 2017; working since March 2014) with a passion for helping expectant families achieve their birth goals. I have attended a variety of hospital births as well as a few birth center births and have seen the value in supporting laboring women no matter the setting. How awesome to be invited into the most precious part of someone’s life to support them through it?!
On a personal note, I have two children both born by "belly birth". My 5-year-old was born 9 weeks early which was quite the introduction to parenting! She has not stopped teaching us about how wonderfully messy life is. My 2-year-old was also medically fragile and needed heart surgery at just 3 months of age. You could say we have been through the ringer but all this is even more reason for me to want to support other families through this special time of life. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 10 years and we live in Aurora Colorado. We love spending time together as a family and enjoy being involved in our church community and in our neighborhood.
