My name is Patti Crawford. I have been working with pregnant women and new mom's and their families all of my adult life. I believe with all of my heart that this is Gods calling for my life!
First and foremost I am a born again Christian. It is my prayer that everything I do brings Glory and Honor to Jesus Christ!
I am the mother of 5 amazing children, 4 that I gave birth to and one that my husband shares with me. Each one of them is happily married thus adding 5 additional members to our family. We have three of the most incredible grandsons and a beautiful granddaughter with hope for more to come. We love big family gatherings, we are loud, messy, silly and love each other very much!
I have been supporting women during birth and early parenting for many years, in fact my first "doula baby" turned 30 this year! I have been a doula since before I knew what a doula was! I passionately believe in a woman's innate, God given ability to give birth. I believe that birth is normal, natural, healthy and beautiful! I believe that a positive birth experience will empower new moms (and dads) in all areas of their lives!
I am a Dona trained doula. I am a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator. I have had training as a breastfeeding educator through NW AHEC. I have completed the qualifications to become a Hypnobirth Practitioner. I am also a trained child passenger safety technician and a Nurse Aide 1.
I believe it is an honor to be a part of a woman's life during such an incredible time. I have the utmost respect for all pregnant, birthing and parenting moms and will fully support you, your family and your choices during this amazing journey!
