About


About
I graduated from Biola University with a Bachelors of Science in Nursing and for the last 25+ years have worked with mothers and babies in some capacity. I have worked in Pediatrics, NICU, Labor and Delivery, Newborn Nursery and Postpartum as a nurse. I am a Childbirth Educator, a Birth Doula, a Postpartum Doula and a Breastfeeding Counselor. 
To say I wear many hats is an understatement. My life's calling is that of service and my love is for expectant families. I enjoy walking you through the exciting times of pregnancy, birth and the first few weeks of your postpartum journey. I support you in your choices and meet you where you are. I bring the calm to your situation as we navigate together learning all about pregnancy, walking through birth and postpartum together.
I consider myself a 'hospital' or birth center doula. I guess it has a lot to do with my nursing background. I support moms that want to have an unmedicated birth in the hospital, those that want the epidural as soon as they can have one and those that want to see how labor goes. I have also been that support for moms having a belly birth. If your desire is that of a home birth I have several doulas that I can refer you to and they are all amazing!
My husband and I have one grown daughter, a son-in-law and the cutest little grandson ever. He was born at a military hospital in Texas and I was so blessed to be there to watch him come earthside. 
This is so much more than a job, this is my calling!  I've been lucky enough to have worked with more than 125 families over the course of my career. I'd love to get to know you!

Currently providing Childbirth Education Classes at Rancho Springs Medical Center, GentleBirth Classes at Trailhead Family Chiropractic, Birth and Postpartum Doula support to the greater Temecula Valley and all surrounding cities.

My name is Sheri Brodie. I am one of only a handful of Certified GentleBirth Educators in the United States. I am an Educator, Birth & Postpartum Doula, New Mom Support Group Leader and former OB Nurse. I have been working with moms and babies for the last 25+ years and have taught Childbirth Education for the last 18 years. I came across GentleBirth while researching positive birth stories and knew that I needed to share this with the families of Southern California. GentleBirth is like no other Childbirth Preparation Program out there. The techniques taught in this program give new moms and their partners tools to have the most positive birth possible. Instead of fearing birth, these moms are excited and up for the challenge of birth and can't wait to meet their babies. GentleBirth moms are calm, confident and in control. The birth of your baby is a day like none other. Your birth should be something that you prepare for fully, anticipate greatly and remember fondly. I look forward to meeting you here!
