Dana Slaughterbeck

Helping guide new parents in pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum is truly my life’s passion and calling. I am dedicated to helping families as they navigate through the sometimes overwhelming task of welcoming new tiny humans into the world. I am committed to helping new families in this massive transition from pregnancy to postpartum  as sweetly and calmly as possible. Bearing witness to birth and facilitating a smooth transition into new parenthood in the first few weeks and months of postpartum care is such a treasure and joy to me. I look forward to serving many, many families in the coming years.

I was born and raised on the East Coast of the US, and made the choice to move to Portland, Oregon to pursue my dream of becoming a midwife. I am a graduate of Birthingway College of Midwifery, having earned a Bachelors of Science in Midwifery, or BSM.  I  then earned my credential as a Certified Professional Midwife, or CPM, from North American Registry of Midwives, or NARM as well as  licensure in the State of Oregon as a Licensed Direct-Entry Midwife, or LDM.

I excel in providing Doula care for families throughout their perinatal period, helping tgem with all aspects of pregnancy, labor, birth and the postpartum periodd. My training as a doula is complimented by my midwifery education, giving me a much broader expanse of knowledge and experience, allowing me the opportunity to serve families to help make informed choices without judgement.

Truly dedicated and personalized service to you and your growing family is my commitment to all of my clients.
