Doula is a Greek term meaning “a woman who serves" and that is truly what we do. We hold the missing elements of emotional support a woman needs to birth her baby, I am a giver, helping other women achieve their goals of having a wonderful birthing experience.

The Mermaid's Womb is a sister owned company by Heather Drury and Candice Lagesse. Heather and Candice are both are mothers who wanted to bring a little something to the table, while bringing a deeper drink to their community through birth work, mom's groups and sacred pregnancy classes.

Heather Drury is a Sacred Doula as well as been through a DONA International Doula training. As a Siren mother of four, becoming a Doula to me was more than just seeing babies be born and come earth side, it’s about womanhood and helping women go from maiden to mother for the first time or the fourth time. Whether she has a natural birth or cesarean, breastfeeds or decided to bottle. Birth is the one life event that will stay with a woman forever; she may not always recall what the baby wore home from the birth, but she will forever remember her experience in giving birth and the details that surround it. It is a powerful and amazing experience can be the most empowering thing a woman will go through, but no matter how her baby is born it should be remembered as a wonderful and beautiful event.

Candice Lageese is a Sacred Doula. A Sea Nymph mother of four also becoming a Doula for me was about the beauty and tranquility that giving birth in the right environment can bring. The simplicity of space holding, supporting women at their most vulnerable, and yet the strongest point as they make their way into motherhood is a gift I truly enjoy. The 4th trimester is where my hearts passion lies. Helping new mothers get on their feet with breastfeeding and navigating the ebb and flow of nursing their new babe. Along with helping find a fresh rhythm to surrendering to the flow a new babe brings to the home.
