My name is Taylor Cosby. My husband and I live in Rogersville, Alabama with our two children. I am a stay at home mother with a part time barber shop clientele three afternoons a week. This allows me to have a very flexible schedule where I can homeschool my son and take on doula clients as available. I am a Certified Labor Doula (CLD) through the Childbirth and Postpartum Professionals Association (CAPPA) (www.cappa.net). I received CAPPA certification in June 2019 and completed my entire training within 8 months! I have attended a training in Spinning Babies and also have a passion for Hypnobirthing.
My love for all things birth, babies, and breastfeeding began when I was pregnant with my son. After lots of reading and research, I decided that a natural birth using Hypnobirthing methods was the best plan for us. At the time, I felt most comfortable in a hospital setting due to some previous fertility problems. When I finally became pregnant with my daughter I decided to have a home birth with local Certified Professional Midwives. My pregnancy and birth with my daughter took place during the Covid-19 pandemic amongst lots of uncertain times and restrictions in our country. Being able to give birth in the safety and security of my own home was a nice change of pace compared to the “outside world”. After both birth experiences I can definitely attest to the pros and cons of each decision.
My philosophy of birth is constantly evolving with every birth and mother I encounter. I believe birth is a beautiful and natural experience and should be allowed to progress as naturally as possible or as desired by the mother. I do believe there is a time and place for medicine and interventions though. Knowledge is very empowering and can help women be prepared for this life changing moment. I hope to help other women learn about the various options for birth and help them achieve whatever plan they think best for their families.
Thank you for considering me as your labor doula!
