I created The Doulapreneur Mentorship to support new and seasoned birth and postpartum doulas in creating a business that supports their passion for birth work, while sustainably supporting their life. This 1:1 mentorship session is a virtual coffee date that inspires you with actionables to birth the doula business you dream about.
Whether you dream of the day you quit your 9-5 and run full force as a Doulapreneur or you’re feeling stagnant in your birth biz as it currently stands, I want to uplift you, offering a solid action plan of next steps to help you get to where you want to be.

“Erin's mentoring feels like the big sister support that every new doula needs!
She is a wealth of knowledge, experience and resources when it comes to all things birth work, especially navigating the hospital setting as a doula that advocates for her moms to not conform to the “one-size-fits-all” model of medical maternity care.
As a new doula, she's helped ease any fears I've had around stepping confidently into this work, offering heart-centered and thoughtful guidance every step of the way. Working with her as my mentor has truly been a doula dream come true!”
AMANDA, NEW BIRTH DOULA
MEET YOUR BIRTH WORK BESTIE
Hey, I’m Erin, a seasoned doula with over 6 years in birth work and 50+ families supported, and I want to help you realize that your passion for birth really can be a sustainable business.
I am head over heels in love with celebrating my community of clients, families and professionals. Being able to empower, celebrate and hold space for women in such a sacred time in their life is an honor that I never take for granted. And, we need MORE birth professionals to rise up in their passion for this very work.
When I started my doula business, I was working a 9-5 for a national high school sports organization, and working to build my business during any moment of "free time" I could find. Mingling and meeting other professionals at any evening time networking event I could find, enrolling in classes and coaching programs, all while meeting with and supporting my clients before, during and after birth.
After 5 years of living the corporate life and being on-call as a doula, we welcomed our son, Cooper, into the world. After gaining my favorite title of all, becoming a mama gave me the final nudge I needed to take the leap of faith from 9-5 and become a full-time Doulapreneur! The happy ending to my story is that I haven’t looked back since.
For more than six years now, I’ve built a sustainable birth business that supports the life I adore, primarily serving mamas that desire to have their baby in a hospital setting, but don’t want to conform to the “one-size-fits-all” model of medical maternity care.
I definitely wouldn’t have made it to where I’m at today without my own amazing support system. With that in mind, I totally understand the importance (and sometimes hesitance) of asking for help.
I know what it’s like to feel stuck, unclear, overwhelmed, and all-around frustrated by running a business all you really want to do is you do best - support families at such a sacred, transitional time in their life!
And that’s exactly why The Doulapreneur Mentorship supports you in confidently creating a doula lifestyle that works for you so that you can be a birth worker that feels supported in growing a sustainable business.
The Doula Lifestyle - A life lived on-call can feel overwhelming, but the beauty of this is that you get to curate a schedule that supports YOU and the life you want to live. Whether you want to figure out how to make doula life work with your 9-5, you need to understand the ins and outs of on-call life, or you’re not sure how a doula lifestyle could possibly work for you, we will uncover this together!
Passion Over Profit Framework - Straight from my own doula playbook, you’ll explore how to build a signature offer based on what brings you the most joy so you can be sustainably supported in your passion for birth work.
The Business of Birth Work - Whether you’re brand sparkling new to doula work or you’ve been in the industry for a while, there is an art to running a successful birth work business that supports you, rather than burns you out. We’ll get to chatting about all of the business elements - including your consultation process, prenatal appointments with the families you serve, pricing your services, creating offerings that you’re passionate about and differentiating from your fellow doulas, finding mamas to support, and creating boundaries in the doula life.
