My name is Denessa Hicks and I am passionate about empowering women through support, encouragement, and education during pregnancy and throughout life. I am a birth doula, childbirth educator, and placenta encapsulation specialist. As a self-proclaimed "birth junkie," I have trained with three separate CBE certification organizations. I have a deep respect for this sacred event in every woman's life and firmly believe that birth is a normal healthy process and that every woman instinctively knows how to give birth. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for ten years. I am a proud military wife and mother to four gorgeous children, all less than four years apart! When my children aren't keeping me busy, I frequent local mom groups, work on various crochet projects, continue to further my education, and support new and expecting mamas. My only desire is for you to be excited and confident about giving birth. Together, we can unravel the mystery of birth and show you that it can be beautiful, rewarding, and empowering.
