Felicia Randle, Owner of Peaceful Endeavors Birth Services, is a childbirth educator, doula, and placenta encapsulation specialist. Her journey started when she had her first baby, reluctantly under epidural anesthesia. She was not informed of her options, which led to fear, poor decisions, and feeling disconnected from her birthing experience. Peaceful Endeavors offers a thorough 8 week childbirth course for parents who want to be educated and empowered, helping rid themselves of anxiousness and fear. The material that will be covered is: how to stay low-risk through nutrition and exercise, birth planning, what the coach should know to help mom best, what to expect with each stage of labor, how to manage pain as labor progresses, laboring positions that can be effective in helping labor progress quicker, risks of medical procedures, breast feeding, postpartum, and much more. Please feel free to contact Felicia with any questions you have at (224) 637-8417 or at
