I'M CONNIE LAMBETH.
I'm a Full Spectrum Doula, Hypnobirthing Educator, and training Breastfeeding Specialist/International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. I'm honored to nurture families as they move through the childbearing year. After attending my doula training and doulaing my first birth in 2015, I knew I had found my life calling.
Before becoming a doula I was a teacher (I’ve taught early childhood to adult learners, and Public to Montessori.), with a Master’s Degree in Educational Research. As a lifelong learner and experiential educator, I see pregnancy, birth, and parenting as life’s greatest experiential lessons. Although I don’t teach in the classroom anymore, I use my background as a teacher and researcher to help families to make informed choices and feel supported while they grow.
I'm committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in my practice of
Anti-Racist, Disability inclusive, and LGBTQIA+ affirming doula support. Helping families during one of the most influential transitions of their lives speaks to my values and most natural skill set: compassion, empathy, and openness.

WHEN I'M NOT AT BIRTHS YOU CAN FIND ME:
Biking with my husband and two wild daughters
Nurturing vegetables in my enormous garden
Cooking something new that I hope will encourage my kids to eat said vegetables
Knitting something that I never know how big it will end up
Watching The Office for the 500th time
Facetiming my Grandma
Dancing like no one's watching with my little girls to Talking Heads, Jens Lekman, and old school Phil Spector recordings
