I am Sherry the Doula.

Sherry Jones LA Doula

I come from a family of birthworkers, and this has shaped me immeasurably. I witnessed deep care of others in my family. I learned the importance of helping others by being kind, compassionate, and patient. I witnessed the kind of support families need to thrive. These ways of caring are embedded in me.

The supportive behaviors modeled in my family then shaped my own career as a preschool teacher, nanny, and outdoor educator. I am forever inspired to deliver a high level of excellence, continue my learning, and provide the best support imaginable to new families.


I have been attending Los Angeles area births as a doula since 2015, including births in homes, hospitals, and birth centers. My knowledge and skills are a blend of formal education (see the list of courses I’ve taken below), and apprenticeship by alongside modern and traditional midwives and healers in the U.S., Mexico and India.

I believe that supporting birthing people and families is the way we support children, family, and community.

Families are built of love, food, and spirit. I support families by bringing more than just knowledge of pregnancy, birth, and babies. My doula care integrates my studies in yoga, ayurvedic medicine, nutrition, and energy work.

As an educator and a child at heart, I feel deeply connected to children and responsible for contributing to their optimal potential through positive encouragement, support, guidance, and safe and loving environments. The work of cultivating these new ‘change agents’ in society begins in utero.

My doula practice is an extension of my life. In life and work, I practice non-judgment, mindfulness, exploration, and collaboration.  My goal is to help to reduce the high rate of unnecessary interventions and cesarean births in current maternity care, and offer tailored care for individual families.

I am an advocate called to speak out and share resources and education that help women and their families make informed decisions about their body, labor, and birth.

I approach my care with each family with curiousity, knowing that your needs and experience will be unique. What will we learn together?

I am a lover of life, children, women, art, play, nature.

I am an advocate of love, patience, justice, and peace. I am a believer that women are the most powerful creatures in existence and are a direct link to all that is divine. I am a goddess of light and offer space to women to connect with their inherent wisdom, and their child-like energy. Women are the connection of the universe through life.

I am a seeker with spirit...

... whose goal is to encourage, inspire, guide, and connect women to their ultimate vision of birth through education, yoga, prayer, food, laughter, love, and exploration.

I am a certified nutritional guide...

...who believes in eating from the earth and using food as medicine to provide nutrients to the body and soul.
