My name is Toni Lawless. I am a Birth Doula, Postpartum Doula, Placenta Encapsulation Specialist, Breastfeeding Counselor, and Child Birth Educator who trained professionally with ChildBirth International and ProDoula. Among these joys you can add mother of one, navy vet, and science major with the ultimate goal of becoming a Midwife.
My journey started in 2013. At the time I had no idea what majority of those titles meant, but I did know I wanted to help families in their journey from start to finish. I started with milk donation, educating friends/coworkers on all things baby, and holding breastfeeding/postpartum chats in my home. I honestly enjoyed every second of it and was eventually asked to attend a birth. On sea duty I offered part time services whenever possible, continued to educate anyone interested, and began certifying. As of October 2016 I am full time with my business, Sacred Lotus.
Located in Newport News. Services spreading throughout Hampton Roads.
