About me

My Philosophy

I believe that all women should have the right to make informed, evidence-based decisions for their births.


I believe that birth is an amazing journey that women have the honor of experiencing, so every birth should be birthing woman centered.

It is your birth! As a doula, I am here to support any decision you make, to educate you with evidence-based information, to empower you to self-advocate, and to help you achieve the birth desire.

I am here for you!

My Story

Hi! My name is Dah Thipyothin. I'm a Lao-American Labor Doula. 

Together, my husband and I, have 2 beautiful kids. They keep me grounded as I venture out on this new journey.


Being a mom, I recognize the importance of having a non-judgmental continuous support system as you go through pregnancy, labor and the postpartum period. It's something that we all experience differently.  

As a Labor Doula, I strive to be that support system for women and their partners. I love birth and everything about it, and am so excited to serve the women in Des Moines, Iowa and surrounding areas. I look forward to educating women with evidence-based information and helping them achieve the birth experience they desire and deserve.
