doula is a Greek word that has recently been used to describe
a professional labor support person.
My name is Cyndi Whitwell. I have been working
as a doula since 1986 and have assisted over 850 families
in their birth process. My greatest joy is when families remember
their birth as a cherished memory to be told over and over
My services have been provided in many areas. I have worked as far west as
Davis and Woodland, east to Roseville and Auburn, Folsom and
Placerville, and south to South Sacramento. Over the years I have worked in over 18 medical
facilities and homebirths.
I have been certified through both ACBE and DONA.
