About Cyndi Garrigan
I began my journey of caring for families during their transition into parenthood after spending more than a decade studying childbirth, caring for friends and family, and having my own four children. I truly respect and honor the natural process of childbirth, and I'm passionate about helping families blossom and grow as they set sail on their own personal journey of transformation. As a birth doula, I am committed to providing individual support in a non-judgmental and unconditional way for each family I serve.
I live in Clinton, TN with my husband and our four children. I quickly discovered that raising a holistic based family in a more rural area came with some challenges. During my pregnancies, I always had to travel into Knoxville to get the education, resources and support I needed. I knew then that once I became a certified doula, I would make it my mission to bring the much-needed support to the outlying and rural communities, and that's just what I'm now doing! By traveling outside the normal range travel for doula support for no extra charge, offering holistic childbirth classes in Oak Ridge as well as in-home, providing free class and support groups for teen parents, and ensuring I provide accurate information that is based on truth and love for a mind, body, and spirit experience.
