About Me

Elizabeth Bloomquist

Birth & Postpartum Doula

About

Since before I can remember I have thrived when I support other people. I followed my path through many classes, courses and certificates that all came together when I committed to becoming a doula. When I started my professional birth and postpartum doula journey in 2014 I knew that I had finally found my calling. You know, getting to the point that work is no longer work. I had loved my work as a herbalist and aromatherapist, but didn’t realize yet that it was such a small piece of what I have to offer. Working for families as a doula I am able to provide connected, unbiased support that is tailored to the families current needs throughout pregnancy and/or the first year of parenting each child. 

Words clients use to describe me: passionate, reliable, professional,  open & honest, connected, confident, informed, comforting, empowering…

Elizabeth Bloomquist

Meet your needs. The prenatal and postpartum periods are times for new and growing families to be nurtured and supported. Drawing upon a wealth of experience serving people in our community I enjoy bringing my skills together to provide continuous, reliable care. I openly share my wisdom and confident energy to assist when needed, but believe in allowing your path to unfold so that every expecting person may discover her/their deep and innate strength. I happily serve expecting people of Asheville and the surrounding areas at their Hospital and Homebirths, Natural and Medicated Births, Inductions and Planned/Unplanned Cesarean Births.

At home, my husband and I enjoy raising our two kids, spending time outside on our 3 acre herb and veggie farm or on hikes, dancing to all types of music and cooking yummy meals with friends and family. I also support families as a community herbalist, clinical aromatherapist and flower essence practitioner with a focus on women’s health, birth support and fertility.
