Hi, I’m Dakota Dawson.
I’m a Mother, Childbirth Educator, Dona Certified
Doula, owner of B.A.B.I and founder of With You Birthing. I hold a degree in communications from Cabrillo College and was trained at Bastyr University as both a birth Doula and in Childbirth Education. Formerly, I was a licensed EMT, and First Responder.
I love the miracle of birth and the privilege of working with expectant families as both a childbirth educator, and as a Doula. Birth is an extremely vulnerable, yet powerful time. My mission is to provide you with current, evidence
based information about pregnancy, labor, delivery, and infant care so you can make informed and empowered decisions during your pregnancy and enjoy a positive birth experience.
I can be reached most easily at: 831-247- 0015
Leah moved to Bend in 2015 from Austin, TX where she was an environmental scientist. After moving to Bend, Leah moved into full time prenatal yoga teaching and birth education. She completed her prenatal yoga training with Yo Mama in Boulder, CO and her birth education teacher training with Yoga Way to Birth in Portland, OR. Leah is the proud mother of two girls. Her desire to work exclusively with mothers came quickly once she found her power becoming a mother herself. In her free time, Leah enjoys running and mountain biking as well as traveling the world with her husband and daughters. Leah teaches pain management techniques, mindfulness, and partner support during pregnancy and birth for Bend Area Birth Information.

In her free time Brooke enjoys hikes in Central Oregon and family trips with her husband and two small children. Grateful to live in Bend's vibrant community, Brooke now sees families at COPA's Northwest Crossing location and teaches prenatal breastfeeding classes with Bend Area Baby Information.
