Welcome to TLC Doula Group, Stephi Anderson!!! We are so glad you are here!
WELCOME TO TLC, Stephi Anderson!!! We couldn't be more excited to introduce you to our newest Birth Doula. Stephi has been a welcome addition to TLC Doula Group and TLC Birth Allliance. Keep your eyes open, because TLC is growing!
Stephi is the owner of the Family Prep Doula Co. She has been a doula since 2013. She has trained with CAPPA, Doula Trainings International, and Bebo Mia, and is currently learning from some of the most experienced doulas in Houston. Stephi loves working with parents who break the mold and grow their families on their own terms. She married the first guy she met who could sing the alphabet backwards and loved books as much as she did, and they’re raising five crazy amazing kids together. She loves to hang upside down and re-pot succulents (just not at the same time). She will try any food you give her.
We are so excited to be partnering with Heart of Houston Birth and Wellness Center to provide educational opportunities for everyone in Houston. #rebelbirth #heartofhouston #laborenabler #thepainteddoula #htxchildbirtheducation #houstondoulas #doulasofoldtownspring #doulasofthewoodlands #doulaswhoteach
Don’t forget to sign up for our in person childbirth education classes in old town spring at www.rebelbirth.com We are limiting class size to keep you safe. Six week and two day intensive options available. Coping - the internalized process of managing difficult things like pain or stress - one of the many topics we will talk about during your class. One coping technique we will cover is the unfolding visualization. Visualizing your body unfolding to allow the natural process of labor to take place. Like this sunflower, your body will unfold allowing in all things life and bringing new life with it. #unfolding #rebelbirth #houstondoulas #doulasofoldtownspring #doulasofspringtexas #thewoodlandsdoula #laborenabler #thepainteddoula
In person classes available again starting this weekend. Check out our setup.
Look what Joli did for Mother's Day, Y'all! The Painted Doula
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!! (Full story on The Painted Doula Facebook post) ... I snapped this picture of her as she was getting herself onto the stretcher because I just thought it was so POWERFUL, seeing her walk herself out with her baby in her arms, still attached to the placenta that was still inside her body, blood and pieces of the amniotic sac on her legs, while her husband, the paramedics and I just stood by and showed reverence and respect for the goddess before us. #mothersday #badassbirther #VBAC #accidentalhomebirth #beautiful #raw #real #thepainteddoula #rebelbirth #houstondoula #doulaweekend #htxdoula #postedbyjoli @lnewchurch
The ultimate honor for a birth worker on Mother’s Day is to be a part of another mother’s birth story. Liz and I have been talking every day since Wednesday. She has had contractions every night that were strong enough to disrupt her sleep but they would slow down or go away each morning. Each day we checked in first thing in the morning, and each day I thought for sure I would hear from her sometime later that day. Each night I was surprised to still be at home waiting for the call. Yesterday I went and visited with her and we talked about how a watched pot never boils and made a plan to ignore anything that didn’t make her vocalize. I felt her belly to see what position baby boy was in and we did some work to help him to be in the most optimal position. We also talked about emotional release techniques and how the stress of the times and the stress of waiting for labor may be blocking her from going into active labor. Finally, this morning she texted me around 6:50am that she had been having back labor contractions all night long. We chatted around 7:30 and she was going to see what happened when she got up and moving. Then right around 9:00 she called and said she was moaning a little through them and thought maybe I should head her way. When I got to the house around 10:30 she and her husband Steve and their sweet little boy Peter were in the playroom hanging out. Whenever she had a contraction she would lean forward on her elbows and knees and I started giving her some counter pressure. She seemed like she was in nice active labor, contractions were about 3-5 minutes apart and around a minute long but usually less than a minute (the goal for most people by the end of labor is 2-3 minutes apart and 90 seconds long.) Liz started telling me about her emotional release yesterday. She had realized that she was sad that Peter wouldn’t be her only baby anymore and that she was scared that the new baby would change her relationship with him. He was playing with blocks right in front of her and she was helping him and holding his hand during surges. Then a big one came and she roared really big! Peter reached out and put his little hand on his momma’s back like mine was and looked into my eyes like “look I can do that too!” After the surge, Liz said she thought her water had broken. We decided to go to the restroom and see what we could see. Everything moved so fast from there! She had one contraction that took her to her knees on the way to the bathroom. She began to panic, but got control really fast. We made it to the bathroom and I gave her some pH paper to make sure there was amniotic fluid (there was). After about 2 contractions we decided to go to the hospital. On the next contraction she went to her knees again and leaned over the toilet. This time I could see that her labia were parting with the contractions and that she was pushing!! I told her she should put a finger in and feel if the baby was there...she did...AND HE WAS!!!!!! I dialed 911 and handed the phone to Steve and said “we’re not going to make it to the hospital! Tell them we need an ambulance RIGHT NOW!” The ambulance got there so fast and then we all just waited for her to ease him out. She did so amazing. He wanted to come so fast and she would start to panic but then she would slow down and listen to me telling her to do no more or less than her body was doing on its own. She gently eased him into the world in about 4 pushes and then had him in her arms!!! She bulb suctioned him herself and got him crying and onto the breast. A few minutes later we helped her up and walked her out to the stretcher waiting out front so they could ride to the hospital. Momma and baby are healthy as can be and so excited about their badass birth story. I’m so proud of her and so glad I got to spend Mother’s Day this way. I snapped this picture of her as she was getting herself onto the stretcher because I just thought it was so POWERFUL, seeing her walk herself out with her baby in her arms, still attached to the placenta that was still inside her body, blood and pieces of the amniotic sac on her legs, while her husband, the paramedics and I just stood by and showed reverence and respect for the goddess before us. #mothersday #badassbirther #VBAC #accidentalhomebirth #beautiful #raw #real #thepainteddoula #rebelbirth #houstondoula #doulaweekend #htxdoula

Meet KATHLEEN WILSON! My greatest friend and mentor! #postedbyjoli #rebelbirth #laborenabler #thepainteddoula #houstondoulas #childbirtheducation #doulasofoldtownspring Kathleen has been a doula in Houston since 2003. In that time she has empowered and guided over 1000 families as they have grown. She is passionate about supporting her families no matter what path they choose and believes that well rounded knowledge is your best negotiating tool. She co-authored Rebel Birth Childbirth Education, built on these principles, and co-founded Rebel Birth Education and Resource Haven with me, Joli Ammons, where we nurture a strong community of wonderful empowered families. Kathleen and her super cool husband Dan have brought 4 babies into the world and have 3 surviving children at home. They have also provided a safe and loving home for numerous foster children throughout the years. The day I met Kathleen, she inspired me so much that the trajectory of my entire life changed, and I know that I’m not the only person in the world who can say that. I am so grateful that this wonderful human exists and that I get to work alongside her every day, empowering families and nurturing our community!
