Felicia Suggs

Full Spectrum Birth & Postpartum Doula

Felicia, known to family and friends as Fee, accepted a strong call to follow a path towards supporting and promoting women's health. Her journey has been fueled by the care she received from her midwives. The care was centered in nurturing and empowering women to search within, find their own strength, and bring it forth to birth their children. She is a birth and postpartum doula with a firsthand understanding of how movement, breathwork, nurturing support, and knowledge can transform a birth and a woman. She is ready to be at your service.

Samantha McClanahan

Birth Doula 
Pelvic Steam Facilitator  
& Photographer

Sam found her purpose intuitively in birth work as she began exploring peaceful ways to give birth once she met her husband and wanted to start a family with him. She also felt deeply called to work with women as a way to facilitate intergenerational healing within herself and her family. Discovering the doula path quickly ignited a fire in her for women's health & wellbeing in a variety of embodied experiences throughout the reproductive years, including menstruation, infertility, and perinatal care (pregnancy, labor, and postpartum). 
Sam facilitates pelvic steaming in private or intimate shared spaces, a practice which has been in midwives' toolkits for millennia to encourage proper postpartum healing. She was trained by Kelli Garza. Pelvic steaming is a practice also used for promoting reproductive health and renewing one's connection to their pelvic bowl.
She has hosted Womb Circles in Tucson, AZ where women commune in circle for sisterhood and healing of their womb and heart spaces through discussion and hands-on practices. Other offerings from Sam include birth photography and crafting custom blends of therapeutic-grade essential oils for a variety of women's health issues or emotional support. In her free time, she makes pottery!

I've loved the pills! I've felt wonderful, both emotionally and physically. I shed all of my baby weight in 6 weeks - without trying. That's totally not my body type at all!

Julia helped me get set up with the placenta encapsulation process and she was able to answer all my questions and educate me on what I needed to do and how the process worked. It was super easy to get my placenta to her once it was delivered. I got my encapsulations within 48hrs and boy let me tell you they are little miracle encapsulations. This was my first baby and by two days postpartum I felt like death and shortly after taking them I started to feel a tiny bit better and after 24 hrs I started to feel normal. I'm not even a week into postpartum and my recovery has been so easy. My milk has come in like a flood, my mood is like it was before I got pregnant, even though I don't sleep a lot with a newborn I actually have some energy. Well I guess you can say these are the answers to the best postpartum you can have. I recommend these to any mom. I don't think there are enough positive words to describe the process. Thank you so much for helping me with this process, because this has made postpartum so much better than I ever thought it could be. I'm so thankful for you and your services.
