About Us

Minneapolis Doulas, Lactation Counselor, Photographer, and Childbirth Educators

Bright Earth Doulas was founded on the idea that every birthing family should know they have options no matter where they birth: hospital, out-of-hospital birth center, or home.

Tabitha and Bria wanted to provide a cohesive experience for families from pregnancy to postpartum, so we combined skillsets to offer clients the best support possible from belly to baby. The team is always learning more about childbirth, and brainstorming ways to best support clients through continuing education opportunities. We don't just attend births. Services include education (childbirth, postpartum, and lactation), lactation support, and birth and lifestyle photography.

As moms who have experienced perinatal mood disorders, we have made it a priority to create community.  We host monthly events that apply to every stage of parenthood: from conception to loving your body. Bright Earth values each stage of parenting, and we want you to feel supported through a community that uplifts you no matter how your babies came to be, and no matter what choices you make in parenting.  

 

In the Twin Cities, there is a robust birth community, but not all doulas are created equal. The doulas on this team are passionate about advocacy and preventing unnecessary birth trauma. We strive to go above and beyond to support our clients from the time they hire Bright Earth to 12 weeks postpartum. 

 

 

Our Story

Meet The Team

Bright Earth Doulas is an agency. What does this mean? It means Tabitha and Bria have teamed up with other doulas that share the same values of education, advocacy, and support as they do. Read more about each doula and their passions below.

Tabitha and Bria are fantastic! The best birth preparation decision we made was hiring them as our doula team. We worked most closely with Tabitha and I cannot even begin to explain how much peace of mind she provided me through the prenatal, birth, and postpartum experience. I struggled with birth trauma and postpartum anxiety after my first birth. And having them on my team the second time around made such a difference. Forever grateful for their services. Definitely, worth the investment in you and your birth experience. You and your entry into motherhood deserve the best. 10/10 would recommend.

You are the client, and we work for you. We are not bound by hospital policy, hierarchy, or biases. Our goal during your birth is to allow you time and space to make decisions that are best for you and your family, not your provider.
