Doula Services and Childbirth Classes

Certified through Birthing From Within®

"Dancing to the Rhythm of YOUR Birth!"

Congratulations on your journey to birth and parenthood!  I, Shalene Massie, invite you to explore the services Rhythm of Birth offers as you embark on your journey. Rhythm of Birth provides doula services, body work, and childbirth preparation classes to pregnant couples and single moms in Blacksburg, Christiansburg, Radford, Roanoke, Salem, Floyd, and surrounding areas of Virginia.  Rhythm of Birth supports couples regardless of where (hospital, home, birth center) or how they plan to give birth.  I believe every woman has the strength and knowledge within herself, and with the help of her birth team, to give birth mindfully and beautifully.  Birth is an amazing and mysterious journey that a woman remembers the rest of her life.   I would be honored to support you on this journey!

"I felt completely safe & supported during my labor experience & had a successful VBAC! I would definitely recommend Shalene to any mother seeking out doula support!"- Andrea Flynn

"I have worked with many professionals over the years. I've worked with nurses, students, midwives, physicians and doulas. I have had the pleasure of working with those who get the beauty and sanctity of that space in that time. Unfortunately, I've also had the opposite experience. Shalene gets it. She is a creative coach, a loving comfort and a constant source of inspiration during the birth experience. Her singular focus in prenatal care, birth, and the postpartum period is her clients, their babies, and families. She is kind, supportive, gentle and respectful of the needs of the mom and family."- Dr. Roberts, OB
