Member Since 2013
I have always had a love for childbirth. I attended my first birth when I was just 17. After having five children of my own, and supporting many friends through their labors, I knew it was where I belonged.
I did my training with DONA in November 2010, and attended my first "official" birth in June of 2011. I attended a second training through BEST Doula training for doula and childbirth educaiton in 2019. Even after the time that has passed, and the numerous births I've attended, I still LOVE birth, and strive for a positive, fulfilling birth for every client no matter what!

I began my career as a physical therapist immediately following college. My unexpectedly complicated first pregnancy prompted me to train as a childbirth educator and a breastfeeding peer counselor in 2001. In 2017, I became an Evidence Based Birth®️ Instructor and began doula training. I earned birth doula certification from DONA, International in April 2019 and became a CLC in 2020. As a Child Passenger Safety Technician, I volunteer in the community to educate parents about child safety in and around vehicles. My goal in those roles is to educate and empower expectant parents for the miraculous experience of birth and their transition to parenthood.
Personally, I am a wife of 30 years to an incredible husband and mother to two amazing college students who both spent their first days in the NICU.

Hello! My name is Cammie Warren and I am a certified Birth Doula, Postpartum Doula, Birth Educator, Placenta Encapsulation Specialist, midwife assistant and certified personal trainer. After completing my BA in family and child development/education at Auburn University, I began my journey as a mom of 7 children and a military wife. I have always been thrilled with birth and often assisted other military wife’s during their births. After 10 years of being a preschool teacher, I decided to follow my passion and pursue birth work full time. I began the process of certifying and getting the skills I needed to inform, support and empower women to have the birth they desire! As God leads, I hope to continue working as a doula, birth educator, placenta encapsulation specialist and pursue my midwifery certification . Every child is a gift from God and I’m so very blessed to be a small part of this special event! It’s my desire to help families reach their birth experience desires.
