About Taylor Bodell
Hi! I am married to my husband Josh, and we have two children together. After finding out about the arrival of our second child, my husband and I began doing research. We educated ourselves about how to have the experience we desired with our next child. Luckily, we had a doula the second time around and I was given support my entire labor, techniques on how to control my pain and different options to help ease my mind and body. This incredible experience is what led me to the world of becoming a doula. I want to give every laboring person the support they truly deserve and desire. I have attended hospital births and home births as a doula.
I want all laboring people to feel supported and safe. It is my goal to empower my clients as well as help guide them into their future in whatever way they find is the best for them.
I have become a certified labor and bereavement doula through Stillbirthday, and am also a bereavement doula through PAIL Advocates. I have also completed the birth doula DONA training workshop, which also has childbirth education and lactation for doulas. I have also completed my training as a yoga instructor which included 200 hours of training, as well as a certificate specific to prenatal yoga. I teach private lessons, and at few locations, a yoga studio in Mason and Ihealth in Okemos.
