I am Megan Othling, a birth doula, childbirth educator, and prenatal and postpartum exercise specialist serving Albuquerque and the surrounding areas. I received my doula and childbirth educator certification through Childbirth International, and a rebozo certification through Gena Kirby. I also certified as an Ayurvedic postpartum doula and lactation coach through Jenna Furnari of Ayurvedic Mamas. I did my prenatal and postpartum exercise training through Erica Ziel of Core Athletica.
I have always been awed by pregnancy and birth, but really fell in love with it after having my own four children. I believe in birthing people and their ability to nurture and birth their babies in the best way for them, and I love seeing people meet the challenges and triumphs unique to each journey. I offer you information and support to be able to make your own informed choices regarding your pregnancy and birth. I want to provide the tools for you to take the wheel in your own maternity care. I am passionate about supporting birthing people and their partners as they find their strength and nurture the wisdom they will need to face the challenges of pregnancy, birth, and new parenthood. I provide physical and emotional support for birthing people and their partners throughout pregnancy, labor, and birth, and my desire is to foster a deeper connection between partners when a partner is involved. I will also passionately support single parents. I attend births in hospitals, birth centers, or homes. I care about you and your individual choices and circumstances, so I am happy to support you in unmedicated, medicated, or cesarean birth.
