My name is Candace Browne and I am a certified DONA International doula. I grew up in Tacoma, Washington and moved to Idaho for college and never left! My husband, Scott and I have been married 11 years and we have two children, Chase (10) and Reagan (8).

I developed a respect and fascination for pregnancy and childbirth at a young age. My mother had my siblings and I at home with the help of licensed midwives and she went on to become a doula herself. I was raised to believe that our bodies are strong and capable of birthing babies and that it can be an empowering experience.
