Welcome to EDS!

Being parents is one of the greatest blessings in life, yet it comes with so many unknowns. I believe that with the right kind of advice and support, motherhood can once again be viewed as a beautiful, desired and positive thing. A family is such a wonderful blessing and I am here to help yours thrive. Ultimately, you will be educated and encouraged to make informed decisions for yourself. I am passionate about spending structured and customized time with my clients– getting to know you and your goals.

After initial contact me by email or phone, we will schedule a meeting. Important details will be discussed and questions answered. You may then evaluate the information and make your choice. Please call to share your decision. If you would like to move forward, we will schedule your first appointment.

My promise is full support as you embark on this life-changing miracle of childbirth and parenthood- every step of the way.  Contact me to begin our journey today! 

Behind the doula

I am Naomi Carrington, a follower of Jesus Christ with a passion first and foremost for His glory. My interest in birth was sparked as a child and along with it came a desire to imitate Christ’s example of servanthood. In our current world where million of babies are murdered without a thought and the definition of male and female is horribly twisted, the need to protect family as God ordained it is crucial.

I grew up in a family of eight with four younger siblings and gained a lot of experience in childcare and recovering mothers in my family and our community. 

As I worked with families in both the US and abroad, I became increasingly passionate about seeing birth once again viewed as a natural process. I was struck by the general lack of education that is so needed to make informed decisions. I desired to help mothers to a good start on their breastfeeding journey- before they desperately need advice. I wanted to ease the load of postpartum life for families and walk beside them.

When I am not working you can find me writing, reading, hiking, exercising, playing cello or spending time with family and friends!
