Welcome! My name is Grace Flannery. I am a DONA International-trained birth and postpartum doula and I am honored to fulfill this role for birthing families in the Twin Cities metro area, Minneapolis and St. Paul.
As a doula, I support people through one of our most basic and profound experiences in life. I help new families transition into parenthood feeling respected, safe and in control of their own well-being. I want the birth of each child to be something parents look back on as one of the most special experiences of their lives, even when emergencies happen or things don't go according to plan. My purpose is to care for a new or changing family with openness, sensitivity and strength, to help foster this type of positive and transformative outcome.
Outside of my work as a doula I love to spend time outdoors, move my body (walk, run, yoga, swim, you name it), read, and laugh as often as possible! My partner Ian and I live in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis with our stunning cat Chloe.
