Hello! My name is Sherri DeLong and welcome to That Crowning Moment Doula Services website. I have always been drawn to the natural side of life especially when it comes to the birthing process. I have 7 children and birthed 2 of them in a hospital setting, 3 at home with midwives and 1 birth in a hospital with midwifes (this birth was twins and not legal to have them at home or I would have). The births that involved midwives were so dramatically different. I felt very supported and empowered by these caring and nurturing women as they encouraged me to do what my body was perfectly created to do. These experiences impacted my birth memories in such a positive way that my passion now is to give that same support, encouragement and empowerment to other women as they journey into the role of motherhood.
I love the outdoors, working out and spending time with my children and 11 grandchildren. I love essential oils, herbs, roots and I am always encouraging Mama's to try natural healing before anything else. I have a big life that is never boring!
I am an advocate for women led births and provide evidenced based information so families can make informed decisions. Connecting families with like minded midwives/doctors and helping them find the right birth place is very important because it can dramatically affect the birth experience. I want the best birth possible for my families and making informed, educated decisions before the birth can be the key to making this happen. Birthing is such a personal event and there is nothing more gratifying than being asked to support a Mama-to-be in their journey and watching her reach inside and discover how much strength and power she possesses, it is a beautiful transformation.
