Meet Your Design Doula

My name is Denessa Hicks and I am a birth doula, childbirth educator, and placenta encapsulation specialist. In other words, I’m a birth enthusiast (read: birth junkie). I love everything about the birth world, but have noticed many colleagues struggling with their business. By nature, birth & holistic professionals are compassionate and nurturing individuals. Business does not come easily for many of us. We prefer to be at work whether that’s in an office or a hospital (or home!). Sometimes this means our business suffers. But it doesn’t have to be that way!

You can have a profitable business while doing what you love!

Fun Facts About Me

  • I married my high school sweetheart. He is, without doubt, my best friend.
  • I have 4 children, ages 4, 3, 2, and 8 months. (Yes, I gave birth 4 times in 4 years!)
  • I always hold the door open for people.
  • I’m a certified Scuba diver.
  • Why a peacock: they symbolize patience, kindness, and compassion. The peacock also sheds its feathers every year, thus it’s a symbol of renewal. Sounds like an obvious choice to me!
