About

Hello! I am Megan Edgington, of The Red Tent Women and Intuitive Momma Holistic Services. My path towards the birth world began over 7 years ago. On recommendation of a friend, my partner and I attended a Bradley Method class while I was pregnant. Our instructor taught us more about birth than I could ever imagine possible. It was amazing to me just how much information you needed to know (or could know!) about birth and how it is constantly shifting and changing. I am forever grateful for this education because it empowered me to gather a circle of support around me throughout the rest of my pregnancy and birth and into motherhood. It was a few months postpartum when my doula and I were chatting and I expressed my love for this journey and how awesome the whole experience was, even through some pretty rough spots. She suggested looking into a doula training... and I have added more hats since, the most recent undertaking is the beginning stages of going back to school to become an acupuncturist. More on that soon!As a doula and educator, I believe that the body was made to give birth and I trust you and your baby to work together and on your own time. I will remind you of the power you hold and choices you have if decisions need to be made. I will hold space for you and your growing family to figure out this journey. I will encourage you to be honest with yourself and speak up when needed because boundaries are important.I love to be at home, cooking, and listening to music but enjoy getting out to breweries (I’m originally from SE Wisconsin…) or trying new restaurants (I worked in them for many years, front and back of house!).Other Services Include: Placenta Encapsulation; Herbal Creations; Post-Birth In-Home Support; Myofascial Unwinding in Birth; Acupressure for Doulas
