The Village Doula


Stephany Abrego, CD

Motherhood is powerful. The moment we become pregnant we start a transformation of the body and spirit. Women are designed to do this. Our bodies are so incredibly capable. Having a passion for that fact is what lead me here to become The Village Doula. I wanted more women to feel just as powerful and capable as they naturally are. I wanted parents-to-be, to channel that transition, prepare themselves, educate themselves and to be guided down this new and challenging path by someone who they could trust. Someone who can give them that safe space to feel vulnerable, be empowered and gain the unfaltering confidence that they need. Mothers should not fear their bodies but revel in them. Father's  should feel welcome and in-touch with this experience, feel of use and contribute to this life changing experience. This is what I believe and as a your doula, I will help you accomplish and protect that.



Birth Doula

Serving families throughout the Twin Cities

Birth work has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career. Becoming a mother myself at a young age, I was always so passionate about woman's health and childbirth. Minnesota has done incredible work in the birth world and doula work is on the rise. After serving over 80 families these last couple of years I have discovered what expecting families really need from me as a doula and the best ways I can support them. I have designed my birth services and packages to accommodate and surround my clients with the highest quality support possible. Take a moment to to learn about my services and what is included. I hope you find the answers you are looking for and I am looking forward to meeting you at our consultation.

Postpartum Doula

In-home support you can count on.

Often we are so incredibly focused on preparing for the birth of a baby tat we forget entirely about the transition home with that baby! As a postpartum doula, my work is to promote a healing and nurturing environment to the newly growing family. I will cook for you, care for your newborn and other children, assist in light housework, run errands for you and help guide you through getting to know how to care for your baby. I provide overnight care as well so that you can maintain healthy and healing energy. I  help implement positive routines and organization so that you feel confident each day with your new baby. Postpartum support can look a lot of different ways. It is the kind of support that you can truly customize to fit your exact needs in order to thrive. We don't always know what we need, until we need it. 

Mother Breastfeeding Baby

Lactation Counseling

Breastfeeding Coaching & Support

As a Breastfeeding Counselor, I am here to provide you with the educated support you need to have a lasting breastfeeding experience. Whether you want to breastfeed for 6 months or over 1 year, it is important to have a good understanding of how to reach those goals, methods to apply and positive encouragement to keep you motivated. Breastfeeding is a full-time job that no mother should feel alone for.  


“To be pregnant is to be vitally alive, thoroughly woman, and distressingly inhabited. Soul and spirit are stretched – along with body – making pregnancy a time of transition, growth, and profound beginnings.”
