Certified Birth Doula, Placenta Encapsulation Specialist
Erika is a native Arkansan, a Certified Birth Doula, placenta encapsulation specialist, mother of 5 (with a set of twins), and a grandmother. Erika has had a variety of birth experiences with her own children which all have contributed to her passion and understanding of how different birth can be for each individual. As a young mother herself Erika became drawn to teen moms and teaching them to make educated decisions about their pregnancy and baby. It was not until her fifth child that Erika knew she wanted to help other women have an empowering and informative birth experience. Erika began her studies to become a birth doula in the Fall of 2013 and later joined the Birth by Design team in November 2014.
