About Amanda



Amanda started her work as a doula to fulfill a long time dream. Amanda completed DONA International doula training to support one of her closest friends as she brought her baby into the world (see beautiful baby above!). Attending her friend's birth, Amanda knew she was called to support women during a uniquely challenging, and rewarding, moment in their life. Amanda is working to provide birth and postpartum doula services to the Fargo-Moorhead area. In July of 2021 Amanda also became the first Evidence Based Birth® Instructor in the state of North Dakota.

Amanda, the Avocado Doula, has evidence-based training and education around:

  • comfort measures during labor 

  • helpful labor movements and positions 

  • stages of labor

  • basic lactation information 

  • knowing your rights as a birther

  • postpartum education  and support
