Hi, I'm Betsy!

Founder of Birth in the Know and Creator of Doula Quest and Down The Canal-The Game of Birth


I guide and inspire postpartum doulas in their transformational journey of doularescense (process of becoming a doula). If you have doubts and fears and are feeling confused or stuck – awesome!! This means you’re right on the edge, stepping out of your comfort zone, and ready for a new adventure. I’ve been there so many times. When I first started my postpartum doula journey I was a single mother raising a little boy, and I was given an opportunity from a seasoned postpartum doula. I gained a mentor and a friend for life. Work has never felt like "work" ever since. This is what I want for you!


I’ll support you with your emotional, practical, and informational needs, sharing time-tested wisdom, experience and case studies. You’ll become a confident matrescense (process of becoming a mother) warrior, champion, and guide for all the MotherBaby couples and families you serve.


If you'd like to hang out with me in real life, then I'd like to invite you to schedule a Connection Call with me. I'd love to hear about your goals, hopes and dreams and see how I can support you. There's no obligation and no cost- just two people connecting over a shared passion for serving families during the childbearing year. I can't wait to meet you!
