We chose Amy as our doula because we felt like she would really help keep me in tune with and working with my body and would help my partner stay engaged and useful throughout without just taking over the process. She has a deep strength and a matter of factness about the birthing process that let us both completely relax. Though our birth plan did not unfold any where near what we wanted or expected (I ended up with preeclampsia and had an emergency c-section - au naturel it was NOT), Amy's consistent presence and wisdom was invaluable along the way. I felt like I could ask her anything and she was available in important and unexpected ways…stopping by the hospital late night on an unexpected stay to encourage us, staying in regular contact throughout, bringing a much needed pizza, witnessing me lose myself in grief and emotion, and helping us let go of our expectations and let happen what was destined to happen. We did art projects, we pulled tarot cards, we talked a lot about babies and what to do and how to care for newborns. Very practical, very spiritual, and very fun! And the best and most magical part of our experience with her was when the shit hit the fan real quick…and we ended up as stars of a scary episode of ER and somehow she made a 25 minute trip in 12 mins flat. I'll never forget seeing her face through the little operating room window and feeling complete ease and relief that she was there by our side during a very scary time. She explained what was going on to me more than anyone else present in the C-section and I felt like everything was bound to be ok…and I feel like that was as much a result of her presence as my good doctor's skill. And she took the most AMAZING pictures. No cameraman needed! I feel like Amy is a part of our family now…a lifelong friend and someone I can turn to for advice, amazing body work and care, or a laugh. I also can't wait to experience more of her relationship to our daughter, the being she helped bring into this world. She will be a great example of a strong and confident woman for our daughter. We love you Amy!
Our family had a wonderful experience with Amy and all the professionals associated with Sage Birth and Wellness. As our postpartum doula, Amy helped my family stay nourished--both physically and emotionally--in the weeks after we brought our son home. Her recipes, her stories, her bodywork are all delicious...I would recommend her practice to anyone looking for support as they welcome a new baby into their life.
We hired Amy as our birth doula and she was great! We also attended the birth education classes Sage does and it was amazing! Fun, informative and thoughtfully prepared. We didn’t feel overwhelmed with information but were confident we had all the information and resources we needed. Thanks for supporting us through pregnancy and baby boy arriving!

About me

I am a 28 year old living in the mountains of Colorado. I have a love of the outdoors, animals, plants, and dancing.

I am passionate about helping humans (women in particular) find peace and happiness in who they are. I have a background in holistic health and think that integrating these modalities into every day life can help anyone achieve wellness. I specialize in heart opening and working with grief-- as a huge trauma in my early 20's opened me up to Reiki and holistic modalities.

Being a doula has shown me strength, humility, and divine power- this is my work on Earth. I want to help women tap into their power so that they can give birth in the way that feels right for them! I think it is important for women to know their options, and to be able to get the information they deserve to make informed choices about their health and birth experience.

I've been seeing Amy Meilen for pelvic physical therapy following the birth of my second child. I had a 4-finger separation (diastisis reci) and was a bit forlorn about ever healing from it. But Amy has been incredible. First of all, she's so gentle, warm and intuitive. For such an intimate treatment she has made me feel comfortable from the first moment I walked in the door. If I could give her 10 stars I would. I've had pelvic PT elsewhere (at a very highly recommended spot elsewhere in the Front Range) and Amy, by far, exceeds my experience there. I still have healing left to do, but I'm grateful for the work and caring treatment I've received thus far.
So grateful for the amazing care my husband and I got through working with Amy as our doula last September. We had a long 24+ labor and eventually had to make the decision to have a c-section. It all seemed a bit easier with amys guidence throughout. From coming to our home to labor there at 1am for hours, to driving with me screaming in pain to the hospital and being with us until the surgery she made my husband, my mother even the nurses and especially me, more comfortable, less stressed, and at ease with all the decisions being made. She adjusted care as she felt necessary throughout the process and was such an amazing support. Her knowledge, strength and aura of calmness was essential for my family. Thank you Amy for helping us bring our beautiful healthy lil baby girl into this world, we could never thank you enough.
