Beautiful Begininnings Doula Services

Jocelyn Skinner CD(PALS,DONA)​ 

My husband Bob I have been married for 27 years. We live in Snohomish Co. and have three children; Jacob, David and Sofia. Each baby was born under different circumstances giving me a unique ability to identify with most birthing situations. We also lost a baby once and I have special training in supporting miscarriages and stillbirths.

My beautiful beginnings butterfly was painted by a dear friend and my daughter Sofia during our church service. I believe it symbolizes the emergence of our beautiful babies as we meet them for the first time. My friend later passed away from cancer. We miss you very much Deb!

I am a certified birth doula with a passion to help women become empowered through birth! I serve all of Snohomish, So. Skagit and most of King County as an on call doula. I am certified with PALS Doulas and Dona International. I love watching the Seahawks, walking my dog, watersports, dancing, playing music, singing and vacationing with my family. Volunteering is also important to me, so I sometimes offer my services free or on a sliding scale to teen or young single mothers and work with the Expecting Miracles program at the Pregnancy Resource Center of Everett, and Eastside Youth Services.
