Founder of Rock Your Baby Birth Services, Co-founder of Colorado Springs Doula Collaborative
Hello! My name is Zoe West. I am originally from Dallas, Texas but have been living in Colorado Springs since 2010. I am a CAPPA certified lactation educator and doula. My husband and I have been married since 2012 and we have two young boys. In addition to being a mom and a doula, I have a Bachelor's Degree in Healthy Lifestyles Coaching and I am passionate about providing nutritional guidance and education to women during their childbearing years.
I first became interested in providing breastfeeding support after the birth of my first son. He was born at 38 weeks gestation and weighed 4 lbs. 4 oz. A low birth weight, short NICU stay, and returning to work at six weeks postpartum made breastfeeding a challenge. Nevertheless, as I overcame these challenges I began to love the breastfeeding relationship I was building with my baby. This is what fueled my desire to support and encourage other women who desire to breastfeed.
My second son was born at home accidentally and unassisted after a two hour labor. This birth was very different than the hospital birth I had with my first. I was so amazed at my instinctual ability to give birth that I decided to pursue doula training. My passion is to empower women to feel confident in their bodies, their babies, and their choices.
My other interests include running, yoga, and changing my hair color.
