Hi! I am Dezarae Weyburn, owner of No Treble Motherhood Services. I have two beautiful children of my own, and fell into the birth world accidentally while I was expecting my first baby in 2012. I started reading to prepare myself for pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding. I learned for the first time about water birth, “The Business of Being Born”, and doulas. I was intrigued and decided to learn more.
I had a hard pregnancy, suffering through gallbladder attacks that went undiagnosed because I thought at the time that I was experiencing Braxton Hicks contractions, so I never mentioned the pain to my midwife! I had a rough recovery from birth, and my baby was in the NICU for a few days. I second guessed every decision I had made, and researched even more.
When my daughter was 11 months old, I attended my first birth as a friend/doula. I had not yet attended any training, but I was able to help with a long, hard labor. I hadn’t decided yet if I wanted to pursue training and certification. I was afraid of the intensity in the birth space, afraid that I would find birth horrifying from an outside perspective, and afraid that I would be just another body in the room, not necessarily someone who added value to the birth.
By the end of that first birth, however, I knew I was destined to become a doula. The moment of birth was so powerful and beautiful that I was blinking back tears. I was nearly brought to my knees in humility of how strong women are, and how amazing our bodies are.
Since then, I’ve attended more births, and I’ve delved even deeper into the world of women’s health, particularly pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period. I feel honored to be able to serve women at their strongest, and help them through their most vulnerable moments.
I recently began training through Still Birthday to be both a birth and bereavement doula, and I recently attended a lactation helper training and now serve as a lactation counselor.
I am passionate about helping women have the birth they long for, helping them achieve their feeding goals, and helping them settle into the postpartum period and feel secure in motherhood.
Thank you for taking the time to let me introduce myself!
