"There is a secret in our culture and it is not that birth is painful, but that women are strong."
What is Thirteen & Finn?
Thirteen & Finn Doula Services is the doula practice of Cortney Louge (that’s me!), DONA Certified Birth Doula. Thirteen & Finn was created after years of learning about birth work and the need for prenatal education and labor and birth support for pregnant people. My interest in birth was sparked in 2015 after supporting my first birth, the birth of my nephew Finn. That passion only continued to intensify through my own two pregnancies and births. Finally, after a lot of reading and research, I decided to take the plunge and begin the process of certification as a birth doula through DONA International at the end of 2018. I now have 1.5 years of doula experience and have supported 15+ births.
