“Becoming a mother is a journey – and like all journeys, it is best when shared."

- Mellisa Reeves, Co-Founder


This podcast was started with the vision of helping women explore and tell the stories of their experiences of motherhood.  We believe in the innate power and wisdom of womanhood, and in helping women connect to these through their intuition.

Mellisa Reeves, co-founder and host of Motherbirth

Mellisa is a mother, writer, and birth junkie/doula.  She lives in Portland, OR with her husband, 7 year old son and newborn daughter.

"Through my work, my goal is to provide connection and support for women and their experiences of motherhood, focusing on issues such as birth choices, loss, anxiety & career balance. 

As a stillbirth and multiple-miscarriage survivor, I care deeply about the voices of those who have experienced loss and who also know there is more of their story yet to be told."


Laura Rice, co-founder and host of Motherbirth

Laura Rice, co-founder and host of Motherbirth

Laura is a labor and delivery nurse and childbirth doula who lives in Portland, OR. She is currently pursuing her Doctorate in Nurse Midwifery. 

“I have always cared deeply about women expressing themselves fully and supporting them as they pursue their dreams. It was not until I saw my first birth that I understood that this was my calling. 

I also got married and divorced before 30. This is a huge part of my life and story. How to grieve, live, hope and love again. LOVE WINS! I believe there is power in everyone's story and we all have something to learn from hearing and sharing our own."
