GentleBirth with Janice Miles - Certified Instructor

Congratulations on your upcoming birth! I am excited to be your GentleBirth Instructor. I am a DONA certified birth and postpartum doula and a childbirth educator. I am the owner of Heart Doula Services. I became a GentleBirth instructor because it puts together ALL the elements I wanted to offer in a childbirth class. From brain training, hypnosis and affirmations to physical comfort measures, this program offers everything you need in one curriculum. It’s not focused on having a “XYZ” type of birth. It’s focused on having the best experience possible, even if your plans change unexpectedly.


I am committed to providing loving and caring support to all my GentleBirth families throughout their entire birth experience. I believe in the strength and power of women. With strong, positive support and clear, evidence-based information, most births will progress smoothly, happily and normally. I look forward to working together and making your “Birth”-day the best day of your life!
