Lanell Coultas ★Certified Birthing from Within Childbirth Educator Conscious Birthing Austin
With a fearless heart and contagious passion, Lanell has been ferrying parents across unknown waters since 1995, first as a doula and currently as a parenting mentor. Her classes abandon the clinical, rote ‘this-is-what-your-body-will-do’ approach, in favor of staying present, curious and loving, however birth (and life!) unfold. A gifted storyteller, Lanell thoughtfully weaves necessary nuggets of wisdom into many rich and lively stories. Parents gather up these gems in order to map their own journey and gracefully meet its inevitable twists and turns. Lanell encourages parents to tend the intensely fertile ground of personal growth in the childbearing year and beyond with great love. She knows that the seeds planted here will inform the rest of their lives and countless others. Passionately resourceful and deeply informed by her own non-linear life-path, Lanell freely shares thoughtfully-curated resources that support her clients’ journey. She lives the principals of Birthing From Within and many brilliant teachings from Pam England in her own daily life. Lanell loves living and working in Austin, any kind of taco, digging in the dirt, adventurous hikes, her beloved wife Lucy, their two wise and hilarious sons, and the principles of mindfulness awareness.
