Samantha Huggins is a CHB certified birth doula, mother of two little kiddos, childbirth educator, lactation counselor, doula trainer, and co-founder of The Code, a radical sex education program for tweens. Her journey into natural childbirth began early, having spent the latter half of her teens in a community that supported women and their right to birth in safe and celebrated environments of their choosing. After devouring any and all media surrounding natural childbirth in preparation for the birth of her daughter, Samantha once again, found herself in a world nourished by belief in a woman’s harmony with her body. Energized by her own supported birth experience and of those around her, Samantha decided to pursue becoming a Birth Doula. By doing so, she hopes to empower and educate other expecting people and their partners so that they might realize their own capacity to work together with their bodies in the symphony that is the bringing of life. Samantha will support and care for you through whatever birth process is best for you, be it homebirth or hospital birth, whether vaginal or by abdominal birth. We go where you go, we birth how you birth. The end.
Domino Kirke is a CHB certified Birth doula focusing mainly on pre-and post-natal wellness. Domino believes all families deserve to have the familiarity of a friendly face throughout their journey into parenthood, and that all women should have the opportunity to explore their birthing options without having the constraints of time or policies. As a child Domino remembers feeling extremely loving and protective towards pregnant women and infants, she always felt a very primitive responsibility towards them.
The birth of her own son was quite a ride. After a 3-day home birth attempt, she was eventually transferred to a hospital because of a uterine infection. Finally the adventure ended with an emergency c-section. The experience made Domino take a step back from pursuing a career in the birth world. Once she came to terms with the fact that things didn’t go as “planned,” she gained a whole new perspective and respect for birth and its process. Eventually she learned to say “he came through the window instead of the door.”
Domino feels she learned so much from her own birth experience that she now has something to offer every woman. Whether your having a hospital birth, home birth or scheduling a c-section, Domino ultimately believes that in order to achieve the most positive outcome you must be tuned in, and in order to do this you must feel happy, safe and secure… she feels it is truly her privilege as a doula to make sure that’s exactly how you feel.
Lindsey Bliss is a CHB certified birth doula and mother to 7 kids. She prides herself on being “the” multiples expert after giving birth to and breastfeeding two sets of twins. Yes two sets! Her interest in childbirth began at an early age due to her mother teaching natural childbirth classes to expecting couples out of her family’s childhood home. She regularly used and understood the word uterus at the ripe age of three. Lindsey is now very passionate about her role as a birth doula and childbirth educator. Her goal is to encourage and empower expecting mommas and/or couples by having an informed birthing experience. Knowing what your choices are and how you feel about them enable you to have an amazing birth. Showing unwavering support and gentle guidance have proved to greatly benefit the doula clients Lindsey has worked with. She has supported first time moms, multiparas, single moms, twins births, medicated and non medicated vaginal births, cesarean births and VBACs. She loves being a mother and doula more than anything in the world. She holds a Bachelors Degree in Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts, volunteers as a community activist working to end sexual violence, loves practicing yoga, enjoys drinking red wine, and loves long walks on Rhode Island beaches.
