The Swaying Doula - Callie provides birth doula services and childbirth education in the Dallas Fort Worth Texas area including Flower Mound, Denton, Highland Village, Coppell, Lewisville, Grapevine, Irving, Plano, Frisco, and The Colony.
Hi! My name is Callie. I am a mother of three adorable, spunky girls. I am a doula, childbirth educator, and prenatal fitness instructor. When I'm not helping couples prepare for amazing births or spending time with my kids, I am usually in my room sewing, or doing the behind the scenes work of owning a business!
I first became interested in becoming a birth professional when I started my own journey towards motherhood. It was so eye opening to me to see how something as wonderful as giving birth to a baby was so often feared and the processes surrounding it greatly misunderstood! I spent a lot of time researching as I prepared for the births of my own babies. From there I grew to love helping others prepare for amazing birth experiences, and encouraging them to be informed of their choices so they could give birth with confidence.
I have experienced birth personally in different ways:
-in a hospital, induced with pitocin and an epidural
-in a birth center with a water birth, and
-another water birth at home.
I support couples in ALL settings - you choose where and how you birth, and I share my knowledge and experience to help you achieve your best birth.
I look forward to helping you prepare for this wonderful experience!

"With Callie, it was the most amazing & easy process. I will definitely be using her again for my 2nd baby...The most caring and selfless doula ever!"
"She was there from start to finish and was ready to give a massage, grab some ice and [a] popsicle, plus pushing tips as I was a first time mom. I would never tell the story of my childbirth without mentioning Callie."
"She is a go-to any day for Doula services. I highly recommend her and I will shout it loud from the mountain top. Thanks Callie!!! You made childbirth an amazing experience for me. Love you and God bless you dearly!!"
"Callie helped me so much during labor. She helped coach me to stay calm and relaxed through every contraction and instructed my husband on how he could better help me through the pain. It was so nice to have a doula that was knowledgable and respectful of my birth plan. I highly recommend her to anyone who is considering hiring a doula."
