Hello! Welcome to the Joyful Beginnings Doula Care website! My name is Cassandra and I offer affordable doula care to the Minneapolis/St. Paul and surrounding Minnesota and Wisconsin areas.   I am a Certified Birth Doula, CD(DONA).  I am also a Certified Lactation Education Counselor (CLEC) as I have seen how important breastfeeding is to new moms!  I am happily accepting expectant moms as clients!  

Here is a bit of my background: I grew up in the east suburbs and I got my bachelor’s degree in Reconciliation Studies (conflict resolution and mediation) from Bethel University.  In my free time I enjoy photography, going for walks, being outside in all seasons, catching a Twins game at Target Field, and spending quality time with my friends and family.  I have been privileged with the education I have received so far, but still felt there was something missing.

I have always enjoyed working with women, and have seen the joy that a new baby brings to a family.  Starting this new chapter in my life has already opened the door to many opportunities and cast a vision for where I want to go.  It has been on my heart to be a doula, and I couldn’t be more excited to see my passion becoming reality!

Five things I love: Tea, Concerts, Christmas, Organizing, and Babies!
