Meet Your Doula

My name is Chelsa Knowles. I own and operate Milk & Magnolias Birth Services, offering services as a labor doula, a childbirth educator, a birth photographer, and postpartum care. I became interested in working with women during pregnancy birth and postpartum as it opened up the doors to career that could combine my personal social/advocacy interests, as well as offer a creative outlet party planning showers and being involved with my photography, and of course my ability to nerd out over fetal and prenatal development.

I was trained at the Florida Traditional School of Midwifery under a CAPPA (Childbirth and Postpartum Professional Association) Childbirth Educator program, and under DONA (Doulas of North America) guidelines. I then began working as a labor doula in Gainesville, Florida in 2011, where I was the preferred doula of North Florida Regional Medical Center and have been active in the birth community since that time in Florida, Colorado, and now Texas!

    • I wish I was in Sydney also! I have really fallen in love with birth photography. It captures so many exposed human emotions and still remains very tasteful and beautiful; moments that could be lost if dad is holding the camcorder.
