Brooke Volpe, Birth & Postpartum Doula & Childbirth Educator

My name is Brooke Volpe.  I am a momma to two wonderful children, a partner to my greatest supporter, and best, part of a family of great love.  They are the backbone to my birth work and drive, my own circle of support, through all of life’s transitions.  

I am passionate about living a healthy life, eating well, staying active and outdoors, and living a life of less toxins while seeking alternatives in a world of many choices.     

As a family, we enjoy snowboarding, camping, traveling, exploring new places and spending time with our family and friends.  We are a Waldorf-inspired family and embrace many of the principles into our family, lives and in turn, my work.  

I have been supporting births since 2016 in all birth settings:  home births, hospital births and birth center births.  Feel free to read the testimonials from my amazing clients who have spent time sharing their birth experience with a doula (me) to help you understand from an insider’s perspective what birth is like with continuous, non-judgmental support.  I know looking for a doula can be time consuming, but similar to finding your prenatal care provider, it is important to search for a doula, the one who will be  by your side who shares the same vision of birth as you do, someone who can hold your space for you, someone who will help create, capture and support this unique journey to parenthood with you.  

My experience changes weekly with each birth.  I learn something new at every birth and approach each birth as a unique experience since each  pregnancy, each body, each baby is unique.  

In my years of experience, I have happily supported VBACs, HBACs, LGBTQ families, high risk pregnancies, surgical and cesarean births, non-medicated vaginal deliveries, medicated/epidural  vaginal deliveries, water births, and many home births.
