Welcome! My name is Megan Hannan. I’m a DONA certified birth doula, CD(DONA), Yoga Alliance certified yoga teacher, RYT200, and writer. I’m also the mother to a fun, energetic, sassy 7 year old daughter, who loves all things Legos, superheroes, and reading!
A Colorado transplant (2015), I’m originally from south-eastern Pennsylvania, where I was born and raised in the country before living outside Philadelphia for 11 years.
For over a decade I worked for a foreign policy think tank. It was an interesting job with wonderful people, but not my calling. The move to the Denver area, prompted by an amazing job opportunity for my husband, was the perfect chance for me to remake myself to reflect my passions. I’m did this by getting my yoga teacher certification, and my doula certification through DONA.
Ever since seeing my brother born in a birth center at age 7, I knew that an unmedicated birth at a birth center was my goal. After two amazing birth experiences (following three pregnancies), one with my daughter, and one as a surrogate for a beautiful baby boy in January 2015, I could not be more excited to help other women achieve their own birth goals! While my official doula journey started in 2015, I have been supporting people in various capacities my whole life, and this is just the official next step.
Yoga has been my grounding “me time” since I first attended a class in 2012. It helps me find my calm, no matter what else life throws at me, and I can’t wait to share that feeling as a teacher. I became a RYT200 in 2016, and enjoy teaching restorative and align classes, as well as prenatal classes, allowing me to help people before, during, and after their pregnancies.
I am also certified as a Certified Lactation Educator Counselor (CLEC). I breastfed my daughter until she self weaned at 3 years 3 months, and I love helping people to achieve their breastfeeding/chestfeeding goals, whether that be 3 years or 3 months. Education is so important, so my prenatal doula appointments will certainly include as much breastfeeding/chestfeeding information as the client desires!
Besides yoga, birth, and breastfeeding, my passions are travel, writing, reading, and cooking. I also enjoy hiking and photography; and am a crusader for the environment and LGBTQ rights.
No matter what type of birth you are looking for, or why you want to try yoga, I look forward to working with each individual (and couple) to get the most from our time together.
