My name is Stephanie. I am a wife, mother of three, gestational surrogate, and birth doula. It is my passion to do my part making the world a better place, one birth at a time.

I have been drawn to the birth world from a young age. After have a few of my own children I saw firsthand the flaws in the birth system of my community and yearned to make it better. That’s when Positively Passionate Doula Services was born. As a birth doula I am blessed to be able to walk alongside women as they navigate the complex, beautiful, rewarding, but sometimes confusing and scary journey that is pregnancy, birth, and parenthood.

My newest journey in life – surrogacy – has also been a long-standing interest of mine. As I grew up I witnessed the tragic stories of family members and close friends going through various fertility related sorrows. I knew, even as a young girl, that I wanted to be able to help them somehow. Now that I have completed my family and had three very easy pregnancies, I am finally ready to bring the joy of parenthood to another family.

Please stay tuned for my chronicles of the ups (and downs) of life as a mom, wife, doula, and gestational surrogate!
