Travel Birth Keeper


A travel birth keeper is a professional who provides support to pregnant people and their families during the birth process, and who is willing to travel to where the birth is taking place. This can be for a variety of reasons, such as if the pregnant person is living in a remote area, or if they want to give birth in a specific location, such as at home or in a birth center.

Travel birth keepers offer a range of services, including:

  • Prenatal support and education
  • Labor and delivery support
  • Postpartum support

They may also be able to provide additional services, such as birth photography, placenta encapsulation, and breastfeeding support.

Travel birth keepers typically have extensive training and experience in birth work. They are also certified in CPR and first aid.

Here are some of the benefits of hiring a travel birth keeper:

  • They can provide personalized support and care that is tailored to the individual needs of the pregnant person and their family.
  • They can travel to where the birth is taking place, which can be especially beneficial for pregnant people who live in remote areas or who want to give birth in a specific location.
  • They can provide support for both the pregnant person and their partner/family during the birth process.
  • They can help to create a calm and supportive environment for the birth.

Birthkeepers that provide this service


Hello lovely one, I'm Nat. I am a devoted birth and postnatal doula, passionate about supporting birthing people to be informed and empowered during their journey through pregnancy and beyond. I am blessed to be a birth worker that had the support of a doula during my own pregnancy and birth. This experience is partly what drives my passion for working with birthing people. I wish for all new parents to have the opportunity to be nurtured and supported to make informed choices during this time.
