My name is Tracy Musgrove.
I am a certified doula and certified childbirth educator through Childbirth International.
I own Gentle Expectations, a business that provides labor support and childbirth education to all of southeast Texas.
I became a doula in 2001 after the horrid birth of my oldest child. I began working specifically with military wives on an Army installation. After having two more children in a whole different way, I decided to seek certification to give myself more credibility. Since then I have had the pleasure of attending homebirths, in addition to my experience with hospital birth (both vaginal and c-section) and birth center births.
I work on a sliding scale, as I do not feel that inability to pay should deter a woman from having a doula, or adequate birth education.
Services I Provide:
Online, private, and group childbirth education
birth doula services and what I call "doula by distance"
My service are is the greater southeast Texas area, to include: Jefferson, Orange, Chambers, Liberty, Hardin, southern Jasper and Newton counties as well as western Cameron and Calcasieu parishes in southwest Louisiana
The most common cities I serve include Beaumont, Port Arthur, Orange, Nederland, Port Neches, Groves, Bridge City, Lumberton, China, Winnie, Silsbee and Vidor.
I can be reached through my website, www.gentleexpectations.com
, as well as by phone at (409) 344-3054
I sincerely look forward to working with more moms in the near future.
