Doulas | Knoxville, TN
At Beautiful Beginnings Doula Services, I understand that you put a tremendous amount of trust in the those you choose to support you when you expand your family. Childbirth and parenting are filled with hundreds of choices and can be overwhelming and confusing for new families. Serving Knoxville and the surrounding communities, I pride myself on providing birth and postpartum doula services that ensure you feel confident, cared for, and respected.
As your birth doula, I dedicate my time and energy to empowering expectant families so you have the best chance of achieving your ideal birth. I love spending time listening to families, understanding what is important to you, and helping you achieve your goals. While your medical provider ensures the safest birth for you and your baby, I will help care for you emotionally and ease your physical discomfort with hands-on positioning, massage, visualization, and breathing techniques. I am comfortable being your doula with vaginal birth, birth by cesarean, TOLAC/VBACs, unmedicated labor, labor with pain medications (including epidurals), and high risk pregnancies. I attend births in the hospital, birth center, or at home.
As your postpartum doula, I provide support in the first 12 weeks after delivery. You are trying to become a parent, as well as renegotiate new roles with partners, parents, or other children. That can be a lot to deal with! I am here to help you through this transition by educating and supporting you and providing breastfeeding support, emotional support, resources, assistance with infant care, and any necessary referral information.

"Hillary has such a relaxed, peaceful personality that helped keep the room calm and focused during my labor. She has great knowledge about different laboring positions and was prepared with tools and techniques to help me cope with the pain.
Hillary was extremely supportive during my labor / delivery experience. She listened to my concerns and helped me feel confident in the decisions I was making during the laboring process. She was quiet while I took multiple short naps and also gave me personal space when family / friends came into the room.
There were multiple nurses and hospital staff coming and going during the day and Hillary never got in their way. She was always present in the crowded room either holding a leg, helping position me into a new laboring position or using props to help my pushes be more productive. Hillary always had a calm face and soothing voice that helped keep me focused on the task of pushing. She helped take my focus away from the stressful moments of pushing and redirected my thoughts towards the baby. Hillary handled the stress well and also helped ease my stress. She was overall very respectful during the entire process and a delight to have as a support person! I highly recommend her!!"
"Hillary showed unwavering patience and support throughout my labor and delivery. She was knowledgeable about birth options & helped advocate for my preferences. Throughout my labor she provided ongoing verbal reassurance & praise without showing frustration, anxiety or weariness. She also participated by talking/modeling techniques for my husband such as massaging, counter pressure, balance support, positioning and more.
Hillary was professional with all hospital personnel and made a point to learn their names and thus called them by name. She always spoke in a personable & professional manner. She was able to talk to care providers and advocate on my behalf.
She shows an apparent passion for the birth field, which drives her desire for ongoing education and training. I will refer others to Hillary. I believe I was able to have the birth experience I wanted because of her support before and during my delivery. If I’m blessed with any children in the future, I hope to have Hillary present again."
