Born in Portland, Oregon as the third of five children, Hannah grew up in a loving, Christian family. Her passion for birthwork began when she was a young child and fueled her path to becoming a certified Doula through Birthingway College of Midwifery in 2013.
After seeing the true benefit that having a Doula can be for new parents versus how incredibly few families have this support, Hannah wanted to help change that. In January 2020, Stumptown Doulas was opened and has been offering pregnancy, birth and postpartum care to the Portland Metro and surrounding areas ever since.
Hannah values her faith, community, self-care, and respect and attempts to implement these in all parts of her life. When she isn’t attending a birth or helping out postpartum in a Client’s home, Hannah can be found enjoying the Pacific Northwests’ nature, crafting candles or canning produce from her garden, or binge watching a new Netflix series with a hot cup of tea.
Hannah resides in the Brooklyn Neighborhood of Southeast Portland, Oregon with her husband, Cameron Woods.
