Shannon Padlog

Supporting families as they prepare for parenthood is the most fulfilling and awe-inspiring work I have ever done! I have been serving families as a birth doula, Birthing From Within Mentor and placenta encapsulator since 2009.  By nature, birth is a unique and deeply personal experience and each mom-to-be has her own set of hopes and expectations. I strive to offer non-judgmental care and mentoring in preparation for this journey, so parents greet labor with knowledge, connection, confidence, and trust.
