About

Brit is a certified Labor Support Doula and Perinatal/Lactation Educator at Birthways, Inc., serving the greater Chicago area & bringing years of experience and love for learning to this work as a certified doula.

As a labor support doula, Brit has supported hundreds of clients and still approaches each birth as its own unique experience. With a wealth of knowledge and information about maternity care, evidence-based practices, and area providers/birth locations, Brit will support you in navigating your own preferences and priority for your birth experience through prenatal preparation, day-of support for labor, delivery, and the immediate postpartum time. Brit has supported first-time parents, growing families, those preparing for VBAC or twin arrivals, and brings her calm and skillful presence to whatever may arise. Warm and passionate about this work of caring for new families, Brit exhibits a deep commitment to helping families find what is appropriate for them.

Brit’s presence was exactly what we needed to eliminate fear and help us focus on bringing our sweet baby into the world.

I cannot overstate how valuable Brit’s support was as we ramped up to the labor and for the delivery itself. It was so great to be able to call her up and get her perspective [in the last week of the pregnancy]. At the birth itself, her physical and emotional support to both me and my partner was so important.
