You’ve heard the stories about a woman who has overcome something you never dreamed possible; you admire the strength in her.  I aim to show you that YOU have that strength and power in you. It isn’t just some women, it’s in EVERY woman. You have to find it and it come from education; learning your options, your alternatives and your rights.

Every woman has the right to their dream birth.

My name is Patty Grider and I am a certified Birth and Bereavement Doula® through Stillbirthday, trained to assist a woman in labor in any gestation. I am in the process of completing my Certified Labor Doula (CLD) certification through CAPPA and I am Childbirth Education trained through CAPPA as well.
I take pride in continuing my education, learning how to assist you to receiving optimal care through evidence and I am proud to say I am the only doula in the area and surrounding areas that is an Evidence Based Birth® Instructor.  I continue to receive monthly trainings though Evidence Based Birth and I have an array of previous courses and trainings that I continue to pour through and absorb.

I am incredibly passionate about women learning their options and rights in labor. I am not anti-hospital/doctor by any means, but I am against the lack of informed consent by many providers that fail to tell mothers the risks of many routine interventions.
