Victoria Wilson CD(DONA) | Central Kentucky Birth Doula

The Mother Well & Mother Well Doula Service is owned by Victoria Wilson CD(DONA), a Berea College graduate who has been in birth doula practice since 2015. Victoria has supported over 50 birth doula clients, as well as many others through classes and support. Past clients speak to Victoria's compassion, expertise, and intuition as a birth doula.

Her birth work is driven by the belief that fostering relationships is the way to positively impact individual births and transform our broken maternity care system. The Mother Well provides practical support, enduring encouragement, and tangible solutions to common parenting problems for the families of Central Kentucky.

Victoria has spoken on college campuses, in professional groups, and in private settings on the topic of birth and doula work.

In 2021 she opened a physical space at 406 Chestnut Street to continue her work and service to the community.

Doula Philosophy of Care

I believe the best doulas are students of human nature and intuitive to the needs of others. My goal as a doula is to ensure everyone on your birth team is supportive and united around your agenda and needs for birth. I am focused on your physical and emotional wellness, the physiologic needs of your labor, your dignity and respect. I find success in forging relationships between all members of the birth team in order to center care around my clients in a collaborative way. As a birth doula, I believe in my responsibility to give you the factual information I have acquired about birth and maternity care practices in our local context. I will speak with truth, honesty, and compassion as I strive to offer gracious and nuanced perspectives.

My Training and Qualifications

th

I have a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and a Minor in Business Administration from Berea College in Berea, Kentucky. One aspect I really appreciated from my undergraduate experience was the focus on the dignity of work - both seen and unseen tasks. Relocating from my small hometown in North Carolina to Central Kentucky was one of the best things that has ever happened to me!

DONA International is my doula certifying body. I am very proud to be held to a high standard of doula practice. From the DONA website, "DONA International is the world’s first, largest and leading doula certifying organization. When our founders created DONA in 1992, they professionalized the role of the doula. Since then, we have certified more than 12,000 DONA International doulas in more than 50 countries!"

I was so glad to have a chance to take the Spinning Babies® Workshop! What I found most helpful was conceptualizing the design of the pelvis and how each level plays a role in bringing baby down and out. And then applying that knowledge to stalls in labor, helping optimize baby's position so the labor can continue.

Ever since I heard about experienced doula and birth advocate Traci Weafer I've been so interested in her work! This workshop was helpful in sharpening my advocacy skills for clients. Traci has a proven track record of supporting her clients and she is just a powerhouse when it comes to building the birth team.
