Supporting Women and Their Families through Pregnancy and Postpartum
A doula offers emotional and physical support during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum to help women make informed decisions about the care they receive.
Who I Am
I am Chelsey Hernandez Whitcomb, CLD, HCHD. I graduated with my B.A. with Honors in History from Houston Baptist University in 2009 and have been teaching high school World History and AP World History for 12 years. As a full-time teacher, I believe continual education is the cornerstone to our growth as individuals and it is my hope to share my knowledge and experience with you during this special time. I offer personalized prenatal, birth, and postpartum support to women and their families. My goal is to give you and your family the support and knowledge you need to make informed decisions about the care you receive during your pregnancy and throughout the labor process.
I completed my doula training with Shannon Stellhorn of A Sacred Journey Midwifery Services and Doula Training Program in Houston, Texas, in February 2018 and finished all certification requirements in October 2019. In April 2018, I completed a training on Integrating Acupressure Comfort Measures into Your Doula Practice for Pregnancy Care, Labor Support, and Postpartum Care, with Nicholas Olow, M.S., L.Ac. and in August 2019 I attended a Spinning Babies Workshop consisting of 14 hours taught by Rachel Shapiro, CPM, LM, SpBT. In February 2021, I also attended a virtual workshop with Adilah Yelton to offer Bengkung Belly Binding to my clients. I am proud to say that as of December 17, 2021, I am officially a trained Hypnobabies® Hypno-Doula after scoring a 100% on my Hypno-Doula Training and can am able to assist mothers who have already taken a hypno-childbirth class such as Hypnobabies® or Hypnobirthing. My professional listing can also be found on the Hypnobabies® website under "Find a Hypno-Doula."
Additionally, I am CPR certified for adults and infants. I hope by continuing my education in various aspects of birth and postpartum care that I will be able to better assist my clients during their pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period.
