~Doula Trainer~Birth Mentor~Placenta Encapsulator~Birth Educator~
No Longer Accepting Doula Clients
Hi there! My name is Miri Halliday and I am an advocate for birthing people. I have been a certified doula for four years and attended over 100 births. I am also a doula trainer, mentor, and childbirth educator. My belief is that people deserve a doula that will put their own biases aside and serve you with their whole heart, advocating for and with you. When I'm not training and mentoring doulas I am encapsulating placentas, and working on my bachelors degree in midwifery.
Labor & Birth Doula Training

Spinning Babies® Parent Class
Classes are the first and second Sunday of every month from 2pm-5pm
Location: 909 N Pines Rd, Spokane Valley
Birth works most of the time, but sometimes imbalances can show up in the body and leave the baby with less space to navigate the pelvis during labor. Learn techniques to restore balance to your body. Have more comfort in pregnancy and more room for baby. This three hour class will take you and your partner through gentle releases and stretches which will help you prepare for labor. The second half of the class you will learn how you can help your baby to navigate the pelvis with intentional birthing positions. Please bring your main support person with you to class as this is a class for couples. You will learn how to do techniques together. Please wear clothing that is easy to move in such as what you would wear for a yoga class. Please bring a yoga mat, something to take notes, and a water bottle.
Placenta encapsulation services with experience you can trust. Washington state blood born pathogen licensed, prepared in an out of home designated kitchen. I can use both the traditional Chinese medicine process which involves steaming followed by dehydrating or I can provide the "raw method" which skips the steaming process and goes straight to dehydrating. You will receive a jar with your encapsulated placenta plus a placenta print.
