What does a Doula do?

A birth doula is a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to a mother before, during and shortly after childbirth to help her achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible.

At the Boise Birth Village, we pride ourselves in offering you the best possible support. From guiding you and your partner through comfort measures and helping you create a birth plan, to being there on the day your baby arrives with knowledge and expertise, a birth doula will be by your side through it all. Your doula works in tandem with your chosen care provider and support staff to ensure continuity of care and consistent, steadfast support. 

What's Unique about Boise Birth Village?


Whether you plan on welcoming your little one at home, in a birth center, or at the hospital, it is our goal that you leave your birth feeling empowered! Having a doula on your team ensures that you and your partner will be nurtured and that your needs will be advocated for every step of the way. 

Boise Birth Village offers 2 models of doula care:

1. Solo Support: You have one dedicated doula who will schedule two visits with you, attend your birth, and one postpartum visit. Another doula in our village will be available as a backup just in case of unforeseen circumstances.

2. Duo Doula Support: With this model of support, you will have two dedicated doulas who will work as a team to provide you with doula care! Both doulas attend your two planned prenatals so that you get to know them equally. The two doulas share an on call schedule and one of the doulas will attend your birth and postpartum visit. This is a fabulous option for those who want that extra support and also want to eliminate the chance of getting a backup doula.

What to Expect...


  • This form helps us to find the best doula for you! We will send the doula bios to your inbox and you simply let us know which doula(s) you'd like to meet


  • Consultation: You meet your selected doulas in free consultation either virtually or in person. This is your time to ask any questions about doula support and how it looks like in practice, get to know the doula team, and see if this is the perfect match!

Hi! I'm Haylee!

I'm a certified doula through DONA International and a Hypnobabies Trained Hypno-Doula. I've been a doula since 2017 and I love assisting families during this wonderful stage of life by helping you create a birth plan, practicing labor and birthing positions, educating you on Spinning Babies and Hypnobirthing techniques, and being a trusted source of information and emotional support.

I've been married for 10 years to the love of my life and have 3 wonderful children. I've had a passion for birth since I was a child and the births of my own children have only made my love for this work grow.

Hello, My name is Sharina Jensen! I wear many hats in my life and love each one of them. I am married to my sweetheart and we have 3 beautiful children and 2 dogs! I have worked with supporting families and the unique challenges that a family can face with their children since I was 17. I have also had the opportunity to support couples through infertility to have a family since 2012.  I believe that my desire to help build families and through becoming a mother my self has led me to Doula work. I took my training in February 2016 and haven’t looked back! There is so much beauty and excitement in pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period. There is also the unexpected and I love being a support to a new family through it all. I am also a Certified Lactation Counselor, (CLC) and am happy to support any lactation needs you may have.
