Hello! My name is Amber Gates and I’m a mom to two children, Carter and Madilyn, who keep me on my toes pretty much 24-7. I have been married to my husband, Duncan for 10 years. Although I have a Master’s Degree in Teaching, I felt led down the path to become a Doula after my own birth experiences, a cesarean and a successful VBAC.
I have personal experience with pre-mature birth, cesarean section, VBAC and breastfeeding which gives me a unique ability and perspective to provide informed support. After my first birth, I realized just how much our country lacks in the way of prenatal and postpartum support. Women need to know their options and have access to not just physical and emotional support but evidence based information as well.
I want you to LOVE your birth and I want your birth experience to be something that you look back and reflect upon in a positive way! As your Doula, I will support you, listen to you, empower you and respect you in a non-judgmental way. I support ALL births, no matter the choices you make. Your body is not a lemon, so together let’s give birth a chance!

Nicole was extremely helpful in achieving the birth I wanted. I couldn't have done it without her!
I was attempting a VBA2C and was very nervous. Sarah was smart, professional, comforting, gentle, and knowledgeable. She helped me get through something I didn't even think I could do, which is to give birth naturally. The delivery of my daughter was the most painful. But because of how the doula helped me, her comfort and confidence and care, I never want to do it another way. She helped turn it from something frightening and seemingly impossible, into one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Thank you, Sarah!!
Katie was so helpful during my labor and birth that her example helped my husband to find his support role. They worked very well together to make labor as manageable as possible for me. She also took pictures during my labor and delivery that we would not have otherwise. We will cherish those precious memories!!
After my c-section, I wasn't sure how I was going to be able to handle a newborn, my toddler, my house and also rest. Deanna was amazing and seemed to know exactly what I needed. I couldn't have handled the first few weeks without her!
