About Me

Hey there! I'm Brittany Shepherd, a Certified Birth Doula in Columbia, South Carolina. I'm married to my best friend, Dustin, and our babes are two rescue pups named Moose and Tilly Mae!

It's a privilege of mine to get to be a vessel for sharing Christ's love as a birth doula, as I get excited to help equip women with education and empowerment for their unique labor + birth journey.


A significant moment that led me to birth work was having the honor to be at my only sister’s side for her first birth. I knew from this precious experience that I wanted to do life walking alongside women as they prepare to meet their little one, offering intentional and devoted care every step of the way!

In addition to my education gained from becoming a Certified Birth Doula (AWWS), I'm also a Certified VBAC Doula (TVL), and I'm familiar with the Spinning Babies® Approach and attended the Spinning Babies® workshop for birth professionals February 2024.

Provided below are my birth doula and photography services available to you!


Birth Doula

After a 1 hour (in-person) consultation and deciding you'd like to work together, my birth doula services include the following:

  • Open availability via text/phone/email in pregnancy, labor, birth and one-month postpartum

  • (2) in-person prenatal visits to cover a wide range of topics (comfort techniques, your birth preferences, formulating a birth plan, physically/mentally preparing for birth, discussing any fears/concerns, optimal labor positioning, etc.)

  • Continuous and individualized labor + birth support, followed by up to two hours of post-birth care

  • Two hours of in-home care within 2 weeks of birth (a time to talk through your birth experience together, and for you to receive continued support in your postpartum transition)


*While I'm unfortunately unable to accept TRICARE insurance, I do offer a military discount of 15% off total services*


Any photography session(s) may be added to your birth doula services. If you're solely interested in photography, I offer any of the following as stand-alone services as well!

Maternity session (1hr, 15min)

Fresh 48 session (1hr, 15min)

Newborn session (1hr, 15min) 


Let's Connect!

Thank you. You'll be receiving a response from me soon!
