Angelica Bennett, Owner of Mama Bear Upstate Birth, is a mother of two boys, Connor and Greyson. She was born in a small town in New York (no, not the city, in fact she has never been to the city) where she gave birth to her first son, Connor. She then moved to South Carolina, where she discovered that she is truly a southerner at heart. Wellford is where she gave birth, in the comfort of her own home, to her second son Greyson. It was then that she discovered her passion for birth and doula work.
Angelica trained to become a Labor Doula through CAPPA and continues to grow and learn everyday. She is now not only a Labor Doula but she has certified as a Bereavement Doula and has since become a Placenta Encapsulation Specialist. Angelica is a huge component of women’s rights and a firm believer that how and where a woman gives birth should be her decision. Her home birth left her feeling so empowered and strong, that she knew she wanted to help other families feel the same way.
