Meet Nikki Shaheed
Certified Birthing from Within Mentor

Since 2012 I've guided hundreds of families across the threshold of birth as a certified childbirth educator and doula. I'm passionate about preparing expecting parents for birth in a way that is realistic and holistic. I love teaching Birthing from Within because every parent deserves compassion and support as they navigate the unknowns of birth.
