Her journey started when the birth of her first child ended tragically with a stillborn at 26 weeks gestation. After researching support for such a thing, she decided to pursue a job in the birth industry as a doula in support of both healthy and happy pregnancies and births as well as losses and difficult births. She was lucky to have an amazing birth team, which included doctors and a midwife, to help her during her loss. Chandler desires for all women to feel the love and support that she felt during that time, no matter the circumstances.
