Owner | Massage Therapist | Labor Doula | C.D Educator | Placenta Encapsulation Specialist
Brittney Riddick was born and raised in Upper Marlboro, Maryland and has enjoyed working with Maryland families for more than 11 years in various settings. With the goal of opening her own Birthing Center one day, Brittney strives to serve more families in a way that is unbiased and unconditional. She is dedicated to her career of inspiring families to birth and parent as they see fit, through education and support.
Brittney founded Destination Baby in 2013 as a world wide support group, which today has expanded into offering labor and postpartum support, placenta services, massage services, childbirth education and lactation support. As a certified doula through ProDoula, Brittney makes it her personal goal to offer unbiased emotional, educational and physical support, during pregnancy, childbirth and beyond.
Brittney has an educational background in early childhood development, and has trained as a Massage Therapist through Baltimore School of Massage. She has experience and certification in many natural healthcare modalities including fertility massage, prenatal massage, reflexology, aromatherapy, and acupressure, all of which are useful tools in pregnancy, labor and delivery.
In Brittney’s spare time she enjoys spending family time with her husband, son and daughter. As many Marylanders, she also enjoys the spring and summer months because it means crab season. She is currently also working towards becoming a Certified Nurse Midwife.
"My favorite part of being a doula, is when I can leave a family knowing that no matter what the world says, they will do whats right for their individual family. That if nothing else lets me know that I have truly provided unbiased support."
