Transcendent Birth® Doula Care facilitates empowered and satisfying birth experiences by providing information, encouragement, and support as you navigate your journey through pregnancy.


“Birth is an opportunity to transcend. To rise above what we are accustomed to, reach deeper inside ourselves than we are familiar with, and to see not only what we are truly made of, but the strength we can access in and through birth.”

Client Testimonials

Candace was such a valuable member of our birth team! Her prenatal support and labor prep gave me so much more confidence and empowerment going into labor. During labor, Candace was a constant source of encouragement, expertise, and comfort. She provides care with compassion and respect, never with judgment.

Our L&D nurse even said she was the best doula she’d ever worked with! Candace has continued to be a supportive resource even in the postpartum period. I am so thankful we had Candace as our doula and will absolutely want her on my team again for our next pregnancy!!”

Riley G.

I highly recommend Candace to be your birth doula! No need to look any further! She was an immense aid to my birthing experience, I honestly don’t think things would have turned out as well as they did without her! My baby was in an OP position and she greatly helped get him into the right position during labor.

She was there by my side and helped me with all of the proper positionings for birth, and provided the calmness and confidence that I needed to give birth to my big 9 lb. baby boy. She was available when I needed her and she helped advocate for me what my needs were during labor. She provided AMAZING support during pregnancy, labor, and after birth postpartum.”

What is a Doula?

Doula- A trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional, and informational support to a mother before, during, and shortly after childbirth to help her achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible.

Countless scientific trials examining doula care demonstrate remarkably improved physical and psychological outcomes for both mother and baby.

Doulas have a positive impact on the well-being of the entire family. Like travel guides in a foreign country, birth doulas help support new families through the life-changing experience of having a baby!

Whether it’s a family’s first baby or their tenth, a doula can help make their birth experience better.
