Hannah Gomez - Doula
Hannah has been a doula for over a year and is a DONA International trained doula. She has a burning passion for supporting families through pregnancy, birth and postpartum by empowering and educating. She became a doula after realizing the lack of support mothers/families have and she is very passionate about postpartum mood disorders.
Hannah has two wonderful kids with her husband Cesar. In her spare time she enjoys working out, spending time with her friends and family.
Spencer Lanning - Artist & Doula
Spencer studied Studio Art and Education at Salem College and is an Integrated Birth and Family Alliance (IBFA) trained birth doula. She lives in Mocksville, NC with her three children and their dog, Gypsy and Archimedes the gecko.
After having three very different, yet equally transformative experiences: an emergency-cesarean at Forsyth Hospital(2010), a successful VBAC at Natural Beginnings Birth Center(2016) followed by an extensively planned Home-birth that didn’t go as planned(2017) she found out what a roller coaster ride life can be as families prepare to welcome their new babies. As she prepared for her first VBAC in 2015, she realized what an essential role doulas truly play and then decided that the doula life was the life for her.
Monica LeCompte - Website & Content Assistant
Monica lives in Monroe, NC with her husband, daughter, & Corgi. She is a breastfeeding advocate & is passionate about birthing families feeling supported & having necessary education throughout their pregnancy & beyond!
