Hannah The Doula
Supporting Growing Families:
Birth, Postpartum, Nourishment
Warmest welcome to your growing family! My name is Hannah Valley Miller.
I live in New Britain with my husband and our two rescue dogs. I love cooking, gardening, doing puzzles, and scrolling Instagram. My pronouns are she/her, I identify as a cis/het woman, and I am a Type 1 Diabetic and adult ADHD-er.
I am a Certified Holistic Doula serving Connecticut since 2019 - I have supported over 40 families since beginning my journey! I provide information, education, and support to nurture and empower families throughout pregnancy, birth, and into those first sweet months. My goal is for families to have an empowering birth and a smooth postpartum transition. My many years of experience working with families as a nanny and preschool teacher, as well as multiple doula trainings, have prepared me for this: my dream job where I get to help make your dreams come true!
I am pro-Black, pro-Brown, pro-LGBTQ+, pro-Trans, pro-choice, pro-sex work, and pro-immigrant.
Please check out my services to see the many ways I can help your family! And don't hesitate to reach out with any questions and to set up a free consultation to chat about your family's needs. I look forward to supporting you through this exciting new chapter in life!
"If you don't know your options, you don't have any."
Trying to get pregnancy and parenting advice from the internet is like trying to take a sip of water from a fire hose! Let me help you figure out what is relevant to your individual situation. I keep up to date on the latest evidence-based information related to pregnancy, childbirth and newborn care. I help you do the research - weeding through all the information and "advice" thrown at new parents - and give you all the options so you can choose what's best for your family.
"Working with Hannah was one of the best decisions I made during my pregnancy. Her knowledge, empathy, humor, and tremendous skill set equipped me to have an extremely positive birth experience. From pregnancy to birth to postpartum, she was a ray of light, always there with insight and information. I felt deeply cared for and understood by her. I had a hospital birth, during which she was able to keep me informed and clear headed despite hospital staff trying to make changes to aspects of my birth plan and general pushback on many of my requests. My partner and I were able to make decisions quickly, efficiently, and with a wealth of knowledge we would not have had without her by our side. Thank you Hannah for guiding me through the most important and beautiful event of my life. I am certain my positive experience was based on having her right by my side the entire time. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Hannah. To say she helped me to feel empowered is an understatement. I recommend her to absolutely anyone." -Christiana
