Jamie has over ten years of experience as a board certified music therapist working in hospitals, schools, nursing homes, and hospice.

Happy Valentine’s Day from Music City Doulas!
To show our love, we made you a playlist. Ranging from tender to silly to downright sexual, we hope it serves well as a backdrop for a day full of activity and time well spent with the ones you love.
Music is a powerful tool. It can help you feel familiar and comforted during the labor and delivery process. Music we love can make all the difference to keep us feeling positive and capable as we move through the births of our babies.
Are you unsure where to begin? Think about what kind of music soothes you, what makes you feel powerful and determined, what music do you associate with being loved and cared for? We recommend compiling lots of options to suit varied moods. Labor can last a long time!
