Brianna Burton, Postpartum Doula and Certified Breastfeeding Counselor
Hello! My name is Brianna, and I want you to know that I’m here for you!
I came into doula work after the birth of my children (two very curious, vivacious, and loving little boys). Previously, I worked across many different roles in the health care sector. I graduated with a Public Health degree from Davidson College in 2011. While pursuing my undergraduate degree I developed a love for informing and encouraging my peers as a Student Health Advisor. Upon graduation, I was a Clinical assistant in a Urology office and Registrar in the emergency room. Both opportunities were incredible experiences and I learned a lot. However, neither career filled the void of coaching and education that I so longed for. Having children opened my eyes to the lack of compassionate individuals to help support and educate parents in the postpartum period. Once I learned about the great work that postpartum doulas do, I started the certification process with DONA and have been loving what I do ever since! My hope is that parents who grow with me leave empowered, well-equipped, and more aware of the village that is eager to serve them. When I’m not doula-ing, I love to garden, spend time with my family, take lots of pictures of my sons, and walk around in nature.
The Doula’s Garden's name includes two of my favorite things (gardening and doula-ing) and expresses my desire to help cultivate new families. I’ll use evidence-based info to fertilize your mind. We’ll work through the weeds of new parent information and find a niche that is just right for you. I’ll shower your family with love and compassion to help you transition in this new phase. I’ll remind you to be patient; flourishing families and gardens require time and consistent TLC.
