Christy Carlson - Co-Founder
Christy found her passion for birth shortly after the birth of her son in 2001; however it wasn't until a dear friend invited her to a doula training in 2011 where she learned what she had naturally been doing all these years was "doula'ing". She has been a birth, postpartum doula and birth photographer ever since. In fact, she continued her love for supporting women by obtaining her Certified Lactation Consultant (CLC) license in 2015.
In the midst of her doula career, she served as a birth assistant for nearly 21 months while working at the Fort Worth Birthing and Wellness Center in Fort Worth, Texas and Inanna Birth Center, Denton, Texas.
Christy serves as an editor, student mentor, photographer and technical support for DoulaVersity.
