Shannon helped out our family after the birth of our second son. I had a very rough recovery and she was an amazing support through it all. She has so much knowledge and resources for postpartum care to truly help you “thrive after birth.” I could not have done this without her and would highly recommend her for other families!

3 Steps to Success as a New Parent
I am lucky to have been born and raised in the beautiful state of Colorado. I have many fond memories of ice skating and snowboarding growing up. I have also lived in Long Beach, California, and Cape May, New Jersey. I graduated from South Dakota State University with a BS in Psychology and began my journey to become a postpartum doula in 2016. My husband is my best friend, and our home is full with 2 crazy dogs, a cat-like dog, a 3-legged bearded dragon, and a beta and 5 Zebra Danios fish. We live in a cute 100+-year-old home about 12 miles outside of Sioux Falls in Hartford, SD!
I care about people, am empathetic and pride myself on being a great listener. Children are naturally drawn to me, I really enjoy working with older siblings, and all types of animals too. I am intuitive, observant, analytical, passionate, creative, and kind. I love to serve others and don’t mind folding laundry, running to the grocery store, or making you a meal. I see a need to be filled and have the needed skills and gumption to Do something about it. I offer Friendly, Never Forced Parent and Baby Support and would love to help you to Parent with Confidence!
