A Mother's Pace Dorvices

Birth Doula Serving the NC Piedmont Triad Areas

Meet the Doula

Jessica Ervin
Founder of A Mother's Pace Doula Services
I am a twenty- something mother to three boys. My birth experiences have brought me from a place of grief and regret to passion and thankfullness. I had a cesarean section with my first son in 2008, I VBAC'ed my second son at home in 2010 and had an accidental unassisted VBAC in 2013 with my third son.I am continually amazed by what the female body can do!  I have a specific passion for VBACs (vaginal births after cesareans) after my own in 2010 and waterbirths, as well. I trained through DONA to become a Birth Doula, in October 2011. Since then I have really dug into everything I can related to birth in the Piedmont Triad area of NC. Currently I am a member of the Piedmont Area Doula Association, a co-leader of the Triad Birth Circle, offer VBAC seminars through the Birth Circle, co-host a Triad Cesarean Support Group, and am trained to attend waterbirths through the Barbara Harper waterbirth workshop. I would love to talk to you about your upcoming birth!
