About Andrea Starbird, CD(DOnA)

I am called to doula work because I want to support and help pregnant people find and use their voice, in order to have their best birth and best passage through this transformational time. I absolutely approach my doula work from a feminist, reproductive and social justice lens and am passionate about supporting all pregnancy experiences. I practice inclusive care and support all family structures. I am here to stand by your side as a source of comfort and guidance and to walk with you through this experience.

I live in the Capitol Hill neighborhood in Seattle, with my partner Nick and our calico cat Sybbie.
