Liz Lull


I am a certified birth doula and doula trainer with DONA (Doulas of North America), a Lamaze®-Certified Childbirth Educator & trainer, and an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, trained through University of California, San Diego, where I am also now an Instructor of Lactation Studies. I have Healing Touch training and neonatal resuscitation training, as well. I am a member of the Childbirth Collective and serve families in the entire Twin Cities and surrounding area. I live in St. Paul with my incredibly supportive wife and four fabulous children, who inspire and humble me on a daily basis.

Erin Sutton


I am a Lamaze®-Certified Childbirth Educator, birth doula, and certified lactation counselor. Becoming a mother was always my ultimate dream. Then, after the birth of my first son, I was amazed by the beauty, empowerment, and mystery of birth and immediately realized being a doula was my next big dream! I knew, however, that in order to give families more, I needed more education myself, so I pursued my educator and breastfeeding credentials. I strive to help mamas and their partners feel empowered to become their own best advocates and make the choices that are best for their own unique family as they prepare for birth and parenting.

Charlie Foust

LCCE, CD(DONA), CLEC, Placenta Encapsulation

As the mother of 2, I knew immediately upon giving birth that I wanted to help other families as they navigated their own birth journeys. I want to make sure that women know what their options were so they can make the right choices for themselves and for their babies. I believe that birth is a transformational experience that deserves to be honored and respected, so that is why I am a huge proponent of education and support. I am ever grateful that I get to do this work. I am a Lamaze® Certified Childbirth Educator and a DONA trained Birth Doula.


Jessica Chamberlain


Jessica Chamberlain is a DONA certified Birth and Postpartum Doula and an American Heart Association CPR instructor, and mother to 2 girls. She offers sessions in Mom and Baby Yoga, Postpartum Closing ceremonies, and is training to offer Myofacial unwinding and Craniosacral therapies for the whole family. She brings a lifelong interest in dance and acrobatics to her work as she finds that womanhood seems to be a circus act all in itself. The balance of self, mother, woman, partner, friend, career woman, etc comes with so many rewards yet can be so challenging and isolating. It is this focus that is the backing of Jessica’s approach through all of her modalities.

Nancy Pone

DONA-trained birth doula, M.O.M.

I am not certified in anything, at least not yet. I am however, a mother of two sets of twin girls ages 8 and 4, plus a bonus singleton baby and have spent only about 2 years of the last decade neither pregnant nor breastfeeding.

Gigi Lull
