Our Story

Kindest Words

La Bella Birth and Baby comes with a unique philosophy: We don’t have one. Our services do not have an agenda.

Our Doulas bring a wide range of experience to the table. Each of us has personal and professional experience with different areas of birth. No matter what you are looking for, La Bella Birth and Baby can meet your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum needs.


Let us be that undying, unbiased, and knowledgable support so that you can have the peace of mind you seek and the support you deserve.

"Chelsea was amazing to work with! I hired her to encapsulate my placenta and she went above and beyond. She checked in on me throughout my pregnancy and was always quick to respond to all my questions. She is extremely knowledgeable in the field. Chelsea was kind and compassionate and put me at ease. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone!"
-Sheri

"My experience with Chelsea was beyond what I could have imagined. When things didn't go exactly according to our birth plan, she was supportive, knowledgeable, and helpful through every decision. She was the most amazing birth doula. If you are looking for someone to truly support you through this life changing time, I HIGHLY recommend her! You will be very well taken care of! Worth every single penny and more!" -Natalie

"Chelsea and her sweet team(Lauren) were absolutely remarkable. I couldn't have imagined a better team. They were so comforting to me and my husband the entire time, too many hours to count! We love what you do, you are so kind and are a wonderful doula! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all that you have done for us!!!" -Kati

Monica LeCompte, Social Media Manager

Chelsea has always had a fervent desire to serve her community. After her experience birthing her son left her feeling unsupported, violated, and taken advantage of, she decided to research options that were available to expecting women and families. When she learned what a doula was, she immediately knew that was her calling.

In 2016, Chelsea became pregnant with her second child. Being a doula herself and striving for a VBAC, she knew she had options and used her voice. Although things did not go as planned, she felt empowered by her experience. This, along with her experience as an independent doula, inspired her to launch her agency, La Bella Birth and Baby. 

Chelsea is fully trained to provide Birth and Postpartum Doula Services, Placenta Encapsulation, Belly Binding, classes and more. Her passion is helping to create a cohesive bond between an expecting family and their birth team, and to witness families become empowered by confidently making decisions that are best for them.

Chelsea resides in Lexington, NC. Her favorite things to do are read, spend time with her family, and go on vacation. 




Susanna is a Birth Arts International (BAI) trained birth doula. Because of her own journey overcoming the negative effects of a traumatic birth experience, she realizes the importance of being respected and fully supported during pregnancy and labor. Susanna is extremely passionate about helping mothers find their voice and advocate for themselves during pregnancy and birth. Feeling called to birth work, she decided she wants nothing more than to support families as a birth doula.

Susanna lives in Lexington, NC with her husband Garrett and their two children. In her spare time, she likes spending time with friends and family, painting, and going on “staycations” with her husband. She believes that motherhood takes a village and is grateful that she can be a part of that village for the women in her community.

Hannah has been a doula for over a year and is a DONA International trained doula. She has a burning passion for supporting families through pregnancy, birth and postpartum by empowering and educating. She became a doula after realizing the lack of support mothers/families have and she is very passionate about postpartum mood disorders.

Hannah has two wonderful kids with her husband Cesar. In her spare time she enjoys working out, spending time with her friends and family.

Spencer studied Studio Art and Education at Salem College and is an Integrated Birth and Family Alliance (IBFA) trained birth doula. She lives in Mocksville, NC with her fiancé, three children, their dog, Gypsy and Archimedes the gecko.

 After having three very different, yet equally transformative experiences: an emergency-cesarean at Forsyth Hospital(2010), a successful VBAC at Natural Beginnings Birth Center(2016) followed by an extensively planned Home-birth that didn’t go as planned(2017) she found out what a roller coaster ride life can be as families prepare to welcome their new babies. As she prepared for her first VBAC in 2015, she realized what an essential role doulas truly play and then decided that the doula life was the life for her.

Spencer joined La Bella Birth and Baby in February of 2018. You can view more of her work on Instagram @theoutlet_artstudio.

Monica joined our team in October of 2019 and we are so excited to have her! Bio to come :)
