Diana Blackburn & Dominique Chessor
Nashville & Surrounding Cities
DIANA is a Nashville transplant from sunny South Florida. After earning her bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of Central Florida and Florida Atlantic University, respectively, she and her highschool sweetheart made the move to Nashville, Tennessee.
After the unmedicated birth of her first child, her passion for female empowerment, her love of learning, and her awe of the miracle of motherhood culminated in a head-first dive into Middle Tennessee's thriving birth community.
She is a birth and postpartum doula, a Bradley Method instructor, a Placenta Specialist, a wife, a mother of three, and firm believer in the power of childbirth to transform women into a strong, confident, capable mothers.
Diana services Davidson, Rutherford, and Williamson counties of Tennessee.
DOMINIQUE originally hails from Montgomery, Alabama, but fell in love with Tennessee when she moved to Nashville to attend Lipscomb University, where she completed her bachelor’s degree. She also fell in love with a fellow Lipscomb student, to whom she is now married and living with in the Nashville area. She is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in English at Middle Tennessee State University.
She has always possessed a passion for children, spending many years working as a nanny and at a preschool, where she developed a particular love for nurturing newborns. This passion, married to her love for educating others, developed into a desire to advocate for, encourage, and work alongside women during one of the most beautiful and intense seasons of their lives: pregnancy and childbirth.
She is a birth and postpartum doula, a wife, a first-time mom, a teacher, and a woman who is passionately in pursuit of providing women with the support, encouragement, and knowledge that they need in order to have a peaceful and joyful childbearing experience.
Dominique services Hickman, Dickson, Maury, Lewis, Williamson, Rutherford, and Davidson counties.
