Beth Ann Martin, MPH, LEC, PCD(DONA)
Whether you are desiring an unmedicated, all of the interventions, water birth or a VBAC, having a doula join your birth team. A 2021 study supports that hiring a doula lowers the rate of cesarean by 52% and a 60% decrease in requests for an epidural. No matter the route you take, I am here for you!
Certified Postpartum Doula
Lack of sleep is one of the biggest adjustments to life with a newborn. Postpartum support, whether daytime or overnight support with a doula can greatly improve your overall well being. Postpartum support can be catered to the needs of you and your little babe.
Lactation Education Counselor
I attended UC San Diego’s Human Lactation program and graduated in 2021. I am a qualifying IBCLC candidate and will graduate from NC A&T in 2023 and take my international boards next year.

all about Beth Ann!
Originally from Northern Virginia, I now live and call North Carolina home. Maternal health has been a longtime passion of mine and the passion keeps igniting the more I study. During college, I experienced a life-changing moment while working on humanitarian efforts in Uganda, Africa with a safe house for women and children. This was further confirmation I was being led to women’s health, and specifically, a career as a doula and lactation counselor.
I received my Master’s Degree in 2018 in Public Health with a focus on women and children’s health. During that time, I had incredible professors that instilled the beauty of serving others. I am incredibly passionate about joining a birthing person that has struggled with fertility and persons with mental health concerns or disorders. I am a trained birth doula and a Certified Postpartum Doula through DONA International. I am also a Certified Lactation Education Counselor with UC San Diego.
When I am not doula-ing or providing lactation support…
You can find me in the kitchen creating a new recipe, at my favorite wine bar, riding my peloton or snuggled up with my fur-child, Nelson MeowDoula and a good book.
I aspire to help the birthing person throughout their pregnancy while maintaining a positive, and empowering environment. I look forward to supporting you through your journey of pregnancy, birth, and into parenthood.
