MacKenzie Parsons
Postpartum Doula | Labor Doula

MacKenzie loves helping women look forward to their birth and parenting experiences with a joyful anticipation, free of expectations and fears. As a labor doula, she helps families create happy memories in childbirth that help form them into the parents they are becoming. Assuaging fears and helping forge trusting respectful relationships between women and their partners, doctors/midwives, and nurses is one of her top priorities as a doula.

She holds a special place in her heart for new mommies! New babyhood is such a special time in life, that can also be full of some really difficult challenges. She loves providing emotional and physical support during postpartum so that mothers have more energy, more confidence, and more time to bond with their new baby(ies) and have a peaceful transition into parenthood.

Lis Mitchell
Postpartum Doula | Placenta Specialist | Prenatal Yoga Instructor

Lis has been helping families honor the great transition into parenthood since 2012. She holds a Bachelors of Science in Psychology and is passionate about pre and postnatal health, continuously studying this field to best serve women and their families in the childbearing years. Lis lends a helping hand, a non-judgemental ear, and and open heart to all families she serves.

Lis is a mother of three young children, and it was shortly after her first journey into motherhood, in 2011, that Lis began her career as a doula. Through her own experience, she noticed a lack of support for the many transformations and challenges that parents experience in the early months.  Lis began supporting families to help honor and support this great transition through doula work, placenta encapsulation, and prenatal yoga.  

Lis believes that we are all deserving of support, and she provides this to families in a truly heart-felt and inspiring way. We are so grateful to have Lis be a part of our wonderful High Country Doulas team.

MEET THE OWNERS

SAMANTHA LEE WRIGHT

ALLISON ROLLANS

Sam and Allison have over 20 years of combined experience working with parents in Boone, NC and the surrounding areas. They love all things birth, babies, women and families. And they love the high country! 

Without the loving support of other experienced women during their own journeys into parenthood, neither Sam nor Allison would have survived as new moms (or at least not with all parts intact!). Raising their own children in the high country has shown them the importance of having strong support and connections to the community. Their mission is to give parents the confidence and support they need to be able to thrive.

Their shared vision of making birth and parenting better, happier, and easier for moms and their families is what led them to create High Country Doulas.

NOT YOUR AVERAGE DOULAS

JUDGMENT FREE ZONE

You know what’s best for your family. Our doulas are here to support you in your way; providing unbiased and up to date support that leaves you feeling affirmed and capable as you journey through pregnancy, birth, and parenthood.

We are here to support you whether you want "all the drugs" or none of them. Whether you choose to bottle-feed or breastfeed.  Cesarean birth? Epidural? Attachment parenting? Scheduled feedings? Wonderful! Let us help you achieve your goals in birth and parenting.

THE AGENCY ADVANTAGE

At High Country Doulas we go above and beyond for our clients. We are available to you 24/7 from the moment you decide to work with us. And because our labor doulas work in teams of two, you can be confident in knowing that the doula by your side in labor will be one you know and trust.

Because we use an agency model, you have the comfort and peace of minding knowing that your needs will be met no matter how big or how small.

PART OF THE TEAM

Over the years, we have worked cooperatively and professionally with local healthcare providers to build quality relationships within our local hospitals.

We never interfere with your healthcare provider’s choices nor do we impose our personal opinions in the birth room. We work cooperatively alongside your medical team to help create a calming and comfortable environment in line with your wishes and within the respectful guidelines of your midwife/doctor of choice.

DADS AND DOULAS

During birth, some of our clients prefer that their loved one be their primary support person during labor. Others prefer that their doula take the lead. Either way, we are here to help you accomplish your goals during labor

Doulas help dads/partners feel confident and knowledgeable during labor. They lend an experienced voice to guide the way and provide an extra set of hands if needed.
