She is an experienced birth and postpartum doula, Certified Courageous Living Coach, Warrior Goddess Facilitator and mother who has worked directly with hundreds of families on their birth journeys and taught classes to thousands.

She created and runs Wild Return New Mamas Nature Group, Rooted Mindful Mamas Group, the online programs Rise Mama and Rise Doula and is working on a book, podcast and Mindfulness Teacher Certification.

Reise has attended many midwifery and birth-related trainings in the US and abroad, spoken publicly on panels and presented to the medical community. She is trained as a Lactation Counselor and in Birth Story Listening.

She has also been a yoga instructor since 1997, engages mindfulness in her life and work, is a practitioner of the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy and Craniosacral Therapy for pregnancy, postpartum and newborns.

Reise is a longstanding instructor at Natural Resources where she teaches a component of their doula training and regularly leads childbirth classes there and at a local hospital.

Her classes blend practical information, up-to-date research, fresh insight, traditional wisdom and experiential learning that engages mind and body in an inclusive, non-judgmental and supportive space.

She believes each birth has the power to be transformative for everyone involved. Her mission is to change the world by shifting the culture around birth and motherhood.
