Desiree Greenwood This is Desiree here! I have been working as a doula now for Five years and have attended over 100 births, most of which were right here in the North Country. Sprouting Families is "in transition" right now as I work to finish my midwifery education. I am grateful for everyone's patience as we continue to work diligently to increase care options in the North Country.
My ultimate goal for Sprouting Families is to have a collective of birth workers that work together to service our vast area and make doula care and other services affordable and attainable. I have been working to train new doulas and adding them to my team so that our area is well covered.
My goal is still to empower and support families to make educated choices in regards to their prenatal experience, labor/delivery, and postpartum period. I hope to finish my midwifery certification by the year 2025 and will be able to service homebirth clients in St. Lawrence County.
Hi there! I'm Mary Rose Goff, and I am a new and budding doula in the birthing world. I have been training under Sprouting Families to become a doula since the Summer of 2020 here in the North Country.
My goal is to work in a partnership with families, and guide them in holistic practices to support their body and their baby. I utilize postpartum nutrition and education, and value the role of natural herbal remedies in the healing journey.
I feel so honored and privileged to have been given the opportunity to support birthing families through this sacred experience.
