Tiffany Decker: CAPPA Faculty, Doula Trainer, LCCE, Certified Labor Doula & Postpartum Doula
Tiffany is the owner of Birthing Stone Doula and Portland Doula Training.
Her professional experience dates 5 years. She was inspired to the path of a birth worker/doula career — like many others — by incredible support she received during her own birth, and credits her success to having strong mentors and a willingness to try and sometimes fail.
As a doula whose private practice quickly grew into an agency model, she brings great perspective and practical skills to helping your business thrive. She is passionate about supporting other doulas in their business growth.
She’s also a sucker for Justin Timberlake and old SNL skits.
Megan Felling, Certified Professional Midwife with Doctors Without Borders, CPM, Instructor @ Birthingway College of Midwifery
Megan began her journey to birth work in 2005 when she started working with a home birth midwife in Madison, WI. This opportunity solidified her dream of becoming a midwife and supporting families in birth, so in 2009 she moved to Portland to start school at Birthingway College of Midwifery. Megan is currently a midwife with Doctors Without Borders. Previously, she ran a growing midwifery practice, Cedar Midwifery, working alongside two amazing midwives. In addition, she worked as a doula with Birthingstone and childbirth educator with Primed for Birth (primedforbirth.com). Many years of working in a variety of settings- including home birth, hospital birth, waterbirth, and overseas- with a wonderful diversity of families has provided Megan with a breadth of knowledge and experience to share with you!
Megan specializes in supporting women planning a vaginal birth after a cesarean birth (VBAC), and families welcoming multiples (twins)- brining a depth of knowledge and information to the training and willingness to pass it on to you.
Megan is committed to supporting women’s reproductive choices and nurturing families through birth and early parenting. Through her work as a doula she strives to improve the way women and families experience family growth. She believes that reproductive justice can only be achieved when people are treated with dignity and their decisions and experiences are respected.
Her passion to teach and train is matched with her ability to explain information in logical and easy to understand ways. Teaching is one of her favorite parts of her job, and she can’t wait to meet you and walk alongside you during this journey.
Also, she’s not one to say no to a beer or pie!
