Stephanie Bodak Nicholson

counselor, educator, doula & mom

Since 1992, Stephanie has been supporting families in the Waco, Temple and Killeen areas.  As a Certified Lactation Counselor, Childbirth Educator and Doula, Stephanie strives to counsel  families in pregnancy, birth, lactation and postpartum, as well as in their new roles as parents.  She encourages them to understand their natural abilities and to trust the intuition that comes with mothering.  Stephanie loves to walk with families through all of their "firsts", sharing her years of experience and wisdom.

This experience started with the cesarean birth of her first baby followed by five vaginal births at home and continued to grow her lifes purpose with each new baby and breastfeeding adventure.


Stephanie is a veteran homeschooling mom of 28 years that has graduated five successful children and continues to classically educate the sixth.  She is involved in her local church, community and various organizations that share her passion and love of others.


She and her husband Bobby with their children love holidays, outdoors, swimming, reading, organic gardening, baking and eating, sunsets, baseball, and traditional crafts like basket weaving and crocheting. 


"I would love to meet your family and walk with you as you navigate this birthing season of your life!"
