the mamas in us honors the mama in you
We would use Gina again for our next birth! We couldn’t have done it without her, and it was completely worth it to us. If we had the choice to go back and do it again, we would still hire her!”
-The Doulas of Mamaste Birth Client
“Witnessing Jessie sway and vocalize with the laboring mother was breathtaking. I have no words to describe the beauty that was shared between doula and mother during each surge. Jessie holds space for each mother, and allows them to feel strong and powerful during their labors.”
-Labor and Delivery Nurse
“Gina worked flawlessly hand in hand with my husband during my birth. She supported him and guided him in a way to better help me. She also advocated for me and the birth that I was capable of achieving!”

Prenatal & Childbirth Education Courses
Our childbirth education course is based on the Lamaze International Six Healthy Birth Practices.
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. We will then progress into understanding the early postpartum period after your baby begins life on the outside.
Our One-Day Intensive Course is 5 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: August 11, September 22, and October 20.
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.
Meet our birth doula team!
MamasteFit provides prenatal and postpartum fitness programming for the Moore County community, and now offers birth doula services through our branch: The Doulas of Mamaste.
MamasteFit Founder & Head Coach, Gina Conley, and Assistant Coach, 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 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.
