“I cannot recommend Gina, MamasteFit, and the Doulas of Mamaste enough. Gina was my doula during my natural birthing experience and she was essential to my labor going as smooth as possible. Prior to labor she helped me come up with a birthing plan. She also helped me get labor started naturally after a number of medical induction methods failed (her massage skills are out of this world). Then during labor she explained procedures to help me and my partner make educated decisions and had numerous tips and tricks to help make the labor process comfortable. I felt safe and supported the entire process - like I had an advocate in my corner no matter what. She also made a point to also check in on my recovery post-delivery as well. Thank you Gina for everything!”

“Gina is simply amazing and I’m so thankful that we hired her as our doula. During my labor, Gina was able to help calm me down and get through each contraction using both mental relaxation techniques and physical relaxation techniques. I really appreciated that she was very encouraging for me to stick to my original birth plan but remained very supportive and encouraging when my birth plan changed. Gina is a great source of knowledge for different laboring/pushing positions and was even able to teach the L&D nurses some different positions. Gina really encouraged and educated my husband on things he could do to help me and made him feel more comfortable with birth.

“As my doula, she literally was the hands that held me up on the day of their birth. My twins are a year old now and I can still vividly remember her presence in my labor room and can say with utter confidence that I could not have delivered my boys' in the way that I did, had she not been there.”

Childbirth Education Course

This prenatal and birth education course is designed to help women take charge of their bodies and their pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum experience by providing information and resources that will allow them to make informed decisions that support their individual family’s unique journey. We want to help mama and her partner make the decisions that work best for their family.
This course begins with navigating pregnancy, particularly the third trimester. Then we will transition towards understanding labor & birth through both the physical and mindset. We will help families become advocates for their pregnancy, birth, and postpartum experience. Our course is heavily focused on labor comfort techniques, understanding birth anatomy, and the biomechanics that support labor.

Our One-Day Intensive Course is 4 hours and Includes:

  • Birth Anatomy, Labor Timeline, and Preferences

  • Comfort & Balance During Pregnancy

  • Labor Comfort Measures (Relaxation, Positions, Tools)

  • Includes the official Spinning Babies® Parent Class module!

One-Day Intensive Course Dates: October 20, November 17, and December 15th.

What is Spinning Babies®??

Spinning Babies® Certified Parent Educators teach the in-person Spinning Babies® Parent Class.
During labor the baby needs to pass through the three levels of the pelvis. Learn techniques to help your pelvis and it’s muscles that support or restrict your pelvic levels. Together, you and your birth partner can use these techniques before and during labor to help “make room for baby!” Spinning Babies reveals how the baby can find optimal positions for labor, and make birth less painful, and even pleasurable! This class is for expectant parents only.

I really loved that this class walked you all the way through pregnancy to postpartum at a level that was easy to understand. The class was really beneficial for my husband. I loved the hands on portion of the comfort measures during labor section and look forward to putting that information to use when the time comes.

Everything with the Doulas of Mamaste has been wonderful, but the private in-home birth class was amazing. We were able to go at our own pace, focus on the information that was relevant to us, and take plenty of breaks. We are both first-time parents, and the birth class gave us the peace of mind to feel prepared. I highly recommend it!

Meet our birth doula team!

MamasteFit provides prenatal and postpartum fitness programming for the Moore County community, and now offers birth doula support through our branch: The Doulas of Mamaste.  

MamasteFit Founder & Head Coach, Gina Conley, and Jessie Donohue, build our birth doula team.  Our doula team provides fitness coaching to prepare prenatal mothers to physically and mentally meet the demands of labor, and birth doula services to physically and emotionally support mothers and their birth team during labor and birth.

Through their own prenatal & postpartum journey, Gina & Jessie have learned the importance of moving with intention and purpose during pregnancy, to feel safe and supported during labor and birth, and the absolute necessity to honor the postpartum period with mindful, intentional recovery and rehabilitation. We look at birth with an anatomical and physiological approach; our deep understanding of the biomechanics of the laboring body helps us to guide our clients through labor with comfort and ease. We use both holistic methods, and science, to support our clients throughout their pregnancies and birth.

We want to enhance the birth experience of our mamas, and help her support team best support the laboring mother.  We advocate for our mamas, and want to help families make informed decisions in regards to their birth experience.  We are so grateful to have the opportunity to support mothers throughout their entire motherhood transition--pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum.  

Mamaste, the mamas in us honors the mama in you.
