Meet The Facilitators

Victoria Wilson CD(DONA)

#TheMalicotes-60

Hi - my name is Victoria! I’m a certified birth doula & childbirth educator with an office called The Mother Well in Berea, KY and serving the Bluegrass region. I’ve been a doula for 5 years and have attended dozens of births.

I'm the grateful wife of Ben and the very proud mom of three girls.

My practice, also the host of these community groups, is called ‘Mother Well’ because I believe, first, you must fill your cup before pouring out to others. (I’ve also loved hearing the many ways my clients have made the phrase ‘mother well’ their own!) My doula style is positive and encouraging with a backbone of conviction and strength underneath. A key way I can positively impact birth outcomes for my clients is to have productive working relationships with their care providers and nurses.

Along with my close doula colleagues, we work hard inside the hospital and out to give you the best information and support to guide your birth experience. I’ve recently opened an online store and launched my signature subscription box service.

Hi, I'm Abby, one of MotherWell's support group facilitators! My passion for supporting families is what drives my work as a doula (specializing in birth and bereavement) and as a PhD candidate in sociology (studying families and how they relate to governments). As the oldest of five kids and as a babysitter/nanny throughout high school and college, I saw early on how hard it is to be a parent. While working on my doctorate, I saw how much family formation is an epicenter for those challenges. I wanted to help in a hands-on way, so I took a birth doula training and fell in love with the work. 
I am also a bereavement doula. I inherited a devotion to walking with people in grief from my mom. Growing up, she would take me and my siblings to every funeral we could attend in our community, in order to make sure no one ever grieved alone. As I saw more and more families experiencing the loss of a child, throughout my college years and beyond, I drew on that desire to make sure they never grieve alone by becoming a bereavement doula. My dedication to helping families in this situation has been furthered by becoming a loss mom myself and by studying child loss as part of my research.
I'm also a lifelong learner (currently working toward my childbirth education certification) and a big fan of Star Trek. I live on a little city lot in South Bend, Indiana, with my husband, our daughter, two dogs, a cat, and five chickens. You can reach out to me through my website or my Instagram page.
