Hi, I’m Taylor!

Founder of Elsie's Essence 

I am a holistic Postpartum Doula and Certified Lactation Counselor serving Houston, TX and surrounding areas. I have a Master’s in Public Health, and a Lactation Counseling certification from Health Children’s Project. 


My passion for birth work grew tenfold after my own at home birthing experience with an amazing doula and midwife at my side. I was truly grateful for their guidance and the love they showed me as I brought my baby boy into the world. I love supporting the mother (and family) through the momentous transition that a birth and newborn brings. 

I specialize in postpartum care, breastfeeding support for new(and experienced) mothers. My goal is to provide holistic, individualized and evidence-based support during your pregnancy and postpartum journey.

Why you need a Postpartum Doula:

Doulas are an essential addition to one's support team for pregnancy and postpartum. A doula offers evidence-based information on perineum healing, cesarean healing, breastfeeding support, meal preparation, emotional support, a shoulder to lean on, and someone to process your birth with. The benefits of a postpartum doula include:

  • A more calm, holistic postpartum experience

  • More likely to reach breastfeeding goals

  • Better quality sleep after birth

  • More confidence with their abilities and instincts as mother

  • Decreased rates of postpartum depression
