About

My name is Mandi Wagnild.  My passion is accompanying people during the most pivotal phase of their lives: becoming parents.  I believe that pregnancy and birth is a monumental experience that will forever shape the kinds of parent that you will become.  This is the reason I’ve devoted my life to helping others have the kinds of birth and parenting experiences that they set out to have.  I do this through evidence-based workshops and nonjudgmental support.  My goal is to help families take a more active role in their baby’s birth and become more confident in their parenting skills.  Because of my overwhelming passion, I read every book, watch every video, and attend every training I can.  In addition to completing birth doula training with three organizations, I also have advanced training in the following areas:

  • Keeping partners involved in labor support using the Gena Kirby Rebozo Method
  • Helping partners to open up about their hope and fears and connect with the birth process
  • Preparing for a successful Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC)
  • Working collaboratively with clients, partners, nurses, providers, and other professionals
  • The politics and challenges of vaginal breech birth
  • The politics and challenges of family-centered cesarean birth
