Guiding Star Orange City Doula Interns

TANA VAN GORP

Birth Doula Intern

My name is Tana Van Gorp and I live just outside Orange City with my husband Corey, our son Jace, and our chocolate lab Dexter. I have been a radiologic technologist since 2011. I have a passion for working with and helping people. After having my son in 2017, becoming a birth doula weighed heavy on my heart. After thinking over it for a few months I knew this was a decision God was leading me and our family into. I’m looking forward to working with moms and dads during the miracle of birth. My hope is to provide families with the support and knowledge they need to have the best birth experience possible even if things don’t go as smooth as we would hope. Women are strong and capable of so much! Giving birth, no matter how it happens, showcases this strength in such a beautiful way. It is truly an honor to be a part of such a special occasion in a family’s life!

My name is RaeLee Gregg. I am 24 years old and I live in Hull, Iowa with my husband and our beautiful rainbow babe, Easton. I currently work as an in home childcare provider and I love every second of it. Becoming a doula has been in my heart ever since my first son, Kolter, was stillborn at 29 weeks in 2018. I admire the strength and ability the woman’s body has for bring new life into this world. It truly is a beautiful and empowering experience. As a doula my goal is to listen to each family’s individual birth goals, to support their birth goals, to provide knowledge to the best of my ability, and to be an advocate during each family’s unique experience.
