Our team

TRAINING & CERTIFICATIONS

My name is Mallory Ward, MS, CD(PALS), CGBE, and I am a certified birth doula and trained postpartum doula, Evidence Based Birth® Instructor, Certified GentleBirth Educator, and owner of Evidence Based Doula.

My philosophy on birth and the postpartum period is simple…Our bodies are designed to handle labor and childbirth, and evidence-based research constantly reminds us of this fact. Outside pressures and social norms of the developed world often have us questioning our abilities to safely birth our children without medical interventions. With strong a support system, education, and advocacy women are capable of accomplishing empowering and rewarding births!

My own birth experiences have taught me that we might find ourselves in situations where we are not afforded opportunities for the natural, holistic childbirth we want. That does not mean that the birth of our children cannot be equally amazing!

I appreciate the complexity of pregnancy and birth and have experience navigating pregnancies with expected high medical interventions, including multiples, bedrest, C-sections, and NICU admissions.

I am a certified Evidence Based Birth Instructor, a certified GentleBirth Educator, a DONA-certified doula, and the owner of Evidence Based Doula
