A few words about me...
Chris Dorman, CD(DONA), HBCE
Birth and Postpartum Doula
HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Educator
...bringing peace into the birthing experience.
Serving families in the San Diego area.
Hi - I'm Chris - mother of five grown children, all birthed naturally. I have been married to my husband Larry for more than 40 years and am a certified Birth Doula, Postpartum Doula and HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Educator. I am always learning new things as I read, attend workshops and seminars, and support moms as they birth and during the postpartum period.
I believe strongly that a woman's body is uniquely designed to give birth. Learning to trust your innate ability will help you approach childbirth with confidence, and avoid many of the medical interventions that have become so common today. Understanding the challenges presented during the postpartum period, and planning well for support during those tender early weeks, will give a family the rest, help, confidence and encouragement they need to thrive.
I am certified as a Birth Doula by Doulas of North America (DONA), as a Postpartum Doula by Contemporary Doula International (CDI),
and as a HypnoBirthing Childbirth Educator through the HypnoBirthing® Institute.
