Welcome to A Mother’s Touch and congratulations on your pregnancy!
“Speak tenderly to them. Let there be kindness in your face, in your eyes, in your smile, in the warmth of your greeting. Always have a cheerful smile. Don’t only give your care, but give your heart as well.”
- Mother Teresa
I believe every woman who wants a doula, deserves one and I am honored you are considering my services to be a part of this wonderful miraculous and intimate time in your life!
My name is Brealin Rogers and I am a birth doula trained by DONA International. I believe birth is not a medical event that needs fixed and that a mother knows exactly what her and her baby need. Birth, whether for the first time or the sixth time, is an intimate miraculous moment I am honored to be a part of.
I live in Glendale, Arizona and service the greater Phoenix Metropolitan area including Peoria, Glendale, Surprise, El Mirage, Tolleson, Youngtown, Litchfield Park, Phoenix, and Tempe. I would be willing to travel further into the east valley including Mesa, Gilbert, and Chandler for an additional travel fee.
After the birth of my first son, whose birth went from bad to worse starting with a necessary induction and ending in an unnecessary bad cesarean experience, I longed for the fairytale birth and devoted myself to empowering women in their own births. I was not confident in my decision making and did not advocate for myself and my son. Fortunately, the birth of my second son was everything I hoped it could be. As your doula, I know that the moment of your child’s birth is one you will always remember and I will do my best to make it a wonderful memory!
I have special training and/or experience with first time moms and those who already have children, single moms, military families including those with deployed spouses, multiples/twins, high risk pregnancy, prematurity, natural and medicated births, cesarean section, Vaginal Birth After a Cesarean or VBAC, homebirth, hospital birth, water birth, those who have conceived ART and IVF, expected stillbirth and birth after a loss.
I am open to helping all families including cases of adoption, relinquishing mothers and LGBT families.
Please feel free to explore my website to learn more about me and why I chose this path.
Support is unconditional.
It is listening…
not judging, not telling your own story.
Support is not offering advice…
it is offering a handkerchief, a touch, a hug…caring.
