Native to the beautiful Black Hills, I (Shannon Church) transitioned into birth work over twelve years ago. It was after the birth of our second child, which was incredibly healing and full of support, that my love and passion for this path truly began. In 2009 I founded Vintage*DOULA. The goal was to meet the growing need for labor support in our community. Since that time, I have been incredibly honored to have supported hundreds of families in all types of birth experiences (natural, medicated, cesarean birth, VBAC) as well as in all settings (home, hospital and birthing centers). It is my absolute honor to be invited into such a special space as families journey into one of the most pivotal experiences in their lifetime. My extensive experience as a professional doula also led me down the path to become a Certified Childbirth Educator as well as the opportunity to birth assist with a number of local CNM's. It truly is a passion of mine to see every woman find her voice for her own birth experience, whatever that may be, and to see that family encouraged throughout their entire journey. Be sure to check out my website and schedule a free consult so we can talk more about your desires for this amazing journey and how I can support you along the way!
