Christy Goddard

Hi, I’m Christy,

I am first and foremost a MOM. It’s been in my blood ever since I was a little girl. When I discovered that a doula “mothers the mother”, I knew that this was my calling in life. I am a mother to 4 grown children, and I have over 25 years of experience with newborns and new families. I have always naturally been a caretaker of others, with a strong passion for helping new parents and new babies. I firmly believe that we were not meant to do motherhood alone.

I am honored to support new families before, during, and after the birth of their child. Every family’s needs are different, whether it’s a hot meal, a clean kitchen, a shower and a nap, a listening ear, help connecting to local resources, practical advice and instruction, a full night’s sleep, or simply a shoulder to cry on. I strive to provide non-judgmental support at all times, and I will support you in the choices you make for your own family based on your specific needs.

I love spending time with my family and with my hubby of 30+ years. We are still adjusting to live as empty nesters, and I truly miss the chaos of a full house. I was born and raised in Clark County, WA and have recently moved back after a few years in CA and OR. I enjoy the outdoors, being barefoot as often as possible, and meeting new people.

Read what these families have to say about their experience with our lovely doulas.

"Christy is an absolute gem and helped me through some really tough days. Don't be afraid to reach out, motherhood isn't meant to be done in isolation." - Postpartum Client

"Being a first time mom, I was super anxious about having a baby and also having a stranger with our newborn. Christy not only eased my fears, but she became family. She showed me how to be a parent. We started sleep training and Christy helped us to implement our plan. She became a successful through the night sleeper! We were so fortunate to have found her." - Postpartum Client

"We hired Christy to help transition our baby from nursing to bottle. She is very knowledgeable and gave us valuable tips. In a nutshell, she is amazing." - Postpartum Client
