Shana Davis

As the great granddaughter of a woman that had 22 children at home naturally! I have always been familiar with the important roles of doulas and midwives. Although I’d always admired and respected them, I never planned on becoming one. That was until I unexpectedly had to act as a doula for a complete stranger during her delivery (you can read more about that in my blog). Ever since then, I have been a birth worker and have loved it! Over the years I have supported countless families and have seen many little souls make their grand entrance into this world! It is my greatest joy to be able to support families during one of the greatest transitions of their lives! When I’m not working, I enjoy local theatre. My motto is “The way to my heart is across the stage!” I enjoy catching shows at Broadway in Chicago and when the time allows, I do a little acting myself!

As your doula, I can partner with you in the following ways:

  • Educate you throughout your pregnancy
  • Help you create a birth plan
  • Provide you with evidence based information about pregnancy and childbirth
  • Help you walk into your delivery fully informed and empowered
  • Provide you with physical and emotional support during your labor and delivery
