Sally Cote (she/her)
Birth & Postpartum Doula, Parenting Coach
Hello! I am Miss Sally - I am called that from my many years working in preschool and the name just followed me into doula work. I am excited to provide family education and doula support in the Pacific Northwest. Since I was little I have had a passion for working with families, babies, and small children. I started my journey as a babysitter, mothers helper and briefly without really knowing it - a peer postpartum doula for teens my age. I jumped into a career as an early childhood educator before I left highschool and eventually was leading my own classrooms and in 2011 I had my own school. This also began my parent education career as many parents came to me with questions. I became a certified Positive Discipline Educator and parent coach. When my own children got older I felt the need to move them closer to their family and I moved from Seattle to a rural area a few hours away closer to family. In our new area I started to work with families again, then felt the pull into doula work. I started my training and then covid came - at which time I started teaching and working with families virtually. Right now I work with families as an educator (both parenting and birth classes) and coach, and as a fertility through postpartum doula. I also provide peer lactation support, reiki energy work, herbal consulting, and meditation guiding. When I am not working with families, I am with my children (we are a homeschool family). I am a Girl Scout Leader and a Volunteer with the BSA. I love gardening, crafting, hiking, and being outdoors.
