Meet Our Doulas

As Doulas in the Portland, Oregon areas, we are trained and experienced birth professionals who guide and support families during one of the most important times in their lives; pregnancy, the labour process and birth.

Sherilee Valenta

  • Owner of Baby Nest Birth Services, Certified Birth Doula, Placenta Specialist and Bradley Method Instructor
  • My husband and I have two crazy cool kids, ages 10 and 13. They make us laugh, keep our life full of adventure and are always teaching us!
  • I adore the summer.
  • The Vancouver Farmers Market is my style of gardening.
  • My husband and I started a food cart called The Mighty Bowl and I often thought it was harder to get started than childbirth itself!
  • I light a candle for each of my students and clients when they are in labor in honour of their journey into motherhood and the new life coming into this world.
