Dana Slaughterbeck

Helping guide new parents in pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum is truly my life’s passion and calling. I am dedicated to helping families as they navigate through the sometimes overwhelming task of welcoming new tiny humans into the world. I am committed to helping new Mommas in this massive transition from woman to mother as sweetly and calmly as possible. Bearing witness to birth and facilitating a smooth transition into motherhood in the first few weeks and months of postpartum care is such a treasure and joy to me. I look forward to serving many, many families in the coming years.

I was born and raised on the East Coast of the US, and made the choice to move to Portland, Oregon to pursue my dream of becoming a midwife. I am a graduate of Birthingway College of Midwifery, having earned a Bachelors of Science in Midwifery, and currently in the process of becoming a Certified Professional Midwife and Licensed Direct Entry Midwife in the State of Oregon. I enjoy offering Doula care while I complete my professional credentials. Offering Doula care for clients who choose to labor and birth in a hospital allows me to give my clients a taste of midwifery based care without the clinical care aspect. Truly dedicated and personalized service to you and your growing family is my commitment to all of my clients.
