About Me

Dorin Jordan

Bio

Houston-based doula Dorin Jordan is passionate about birth. When the birth of her first child seventeen years ago didn’t go as planned, Dorin was inspired to take matters into her own hands for her second baby, and her experience in a Bradley Method class changed her life forever. The Bradley Method® encourages mothers to trust their bodies using natural breathing, relaxation, nutrition, exercise, and education. With this new knowledge and the help of a skilled midwife, Dorin gave birth to her second child at home. She quickly realized her calling was to work with birthing families, and for the last twelve years she’s been a sought after Bradley Method Instructor, Natural Child Birth teacher and Birth Doula based in the greater Houston area. In a recent interview, birth photographer Nicole Noelle called Dorin “…an amazing childbirth instructor, a gifted doula and talented breastfeeding counselor,” and the praise doesn’t stop there. With a breadth of experience ranging from unmedicated at-home vaginal births, to unplanned cesareans, to many other childbirth variables, Dorin’s personal birth philosophy is to assist and educate each unique birthing family she works with, while fully supporting their decision to make choices that are right for them.
