Natural Beginnings Doula and Pregnancy Services -  Supporting women and their partners through pregnancy and birth


Congratulations on your pregnancy and up-coming delivery. Considering hiring a doula is a great step forward in helping you to achieve the birth experience you are hoping for. I am a DONA- trained and certified birth doula as well as a night nurse/postpartum doula in the Chicago area. I decided to become a doula while I was in the process of completing my Bachelors in Nursing. Throughout my studies I saw that women were not getting the support and advocacy they deserved and I felt drawn to do something to change this. 

I believe all families deserve to feel respected, listened to and a part of their care during their pregnancy, birth and postpartum journey. My passion lies in natural birth and I believe most women can accomplish a drug-free/low intervention delivery with the right support and education. That being said, I also believe that a woman should have the birth she feels is best for her and her child. For some families this is a planned C-section, for another it is an all-natural home birth or something in between. All are valid birth choices as long as they are made from an educated place.

In my "spare" time I am a board member and the co-chair of fundraising for Chicago Volunteer Doulas. CVD is a wonderful Chicago based not for profit that provides doula services and childbirth/breastfeeding/parenting education to families throughout Chicagoland. In this role I run multiple fundraisers every year, teach basic childbirth education classes, run a new moms group and help to mentor new doulas in our area.- Samantha Trebilcock BSN RN, CD(DONA)
