About the Doula

Greeting! I'm Candace Johnston - a mom of seven, a wife, and a certified doula. I've undergone natural birth seven times, including a planned home birth. Though getting pregnant wasn't a cakewalk, I overcame the hurdles. Being a native of Sequatchie Valley, I enjoy exploring the outdoors, trying out new restaurants, vacationing at Dauphin Island, AL, and spending quality time with my amazing husband, Steven, and our kids.

As a doula, I aim to provide comprehensive education, guidance, support, and empowerment to women throughout their conception, pregnancy, birth, and postpartum journey. I hold fertility, pregnancy and childbirth, postpartum, and bereavement certifications. Every woman deserves a positive and memorable experience during this crucial time. I'm thrilled to meet you and offer my assistance in any way possible!
