Adrienne Wetherell: Doula

adrienne_0013.jpg

Adrienne is a birth & postpartum doula, yoga teacher, and proud mama. As a doula, she draws on her practice of yoga and mindfulness, as well as her life experiences to support expectant mothers through the transformative process of birth. She feels honored to be able to work with families during such a life-changing time. Adrienne received her doula certification under the mentorship of Crescence Krueger from Heart ofBirth, and with DONA International.

 

A yoga teacher since 2005, Adrienne is passionate about making the practice a safe and nourishing experience for her students. Adrienne’s prenatal and postnatal yoga classes explore the powerful relationship between yoga, birth and parenthood, and aim to support the development of a healthy parent-baby bond. She completed prenatal and postnatal yoga training with Monica Voss, Trauma-Sensitive Yoga training with David Emerson and Bessel van der Kolk, and Mindful Motherhood facilitator training through the Institute of Noetic Sciences with Cassandra Vieten, PhD.

In September 2013, Adrienne gave birth to her breech baby Ava and has since been blessed by the many joys and challenges of motherhood.

It is rare to find a human being as compassionate and loving as Adrienne was during my labour. Adrienne was also informative and supportive before and after the birth. After this experience Adrienne is like family
