We caught up with Stephanie Gunderson and asked her some questions about what makes her business so successful.

What inspired you to start this business?
The positive birth experience I had with my daughter inspired me to become a doula. I want all birthing women to feel as safe, supported and respected as I did during one of the most important times of my life.

How long have you been in this business?
2.5 years

What keeps you going every day?
My amazing husband and my family

What is your favorite part about your business?
Watching a birthing woman discover her own voice and her own power, by whichever means she chooses. I love being able to witness the transition into motherhood, into family.

List the services you provide
Birth Doula Support, IMB Childbirth Education

Out of all of the services you provide, what would you say is your specialty?
Labor Support.

What is one thing you would like us to know about your business?
I serve women and their families mid to eastern Suffolk County as well as the east end of Long Island.

What's the best compliment you have ever received?
My favorite thing to hear after a birth is “we couldn’t have done it without you!” Mainly because I know that isn’t true, they absolutely can do it, but I love knowing I helped them have a positive birthing experience.

What makes your business unique?
My purple hair! And the fact that I am easily able to adapt to any and all types of birthing environments. I am also a hairdresser and love to pamper moms with haircuts during pregnancy, as well as doing their hair postpartum.

Thank you Stephanie Gunderson for sharing with us and giving us insight to your business!
