Hi! I'm Dr. Amy L. Gilliland, an independent PhD researcher and educator.  My joy is taking research and making it useful for people -  in a wide variety of ways! 

If you are a doula or nurse, you'll enjoy reading my books, reading my free blog, discovering more about my doula research, and becoming a member to download journal research articles!  I also offer one on one consulting

If you are a policy maker, go here for suggested resources.  If you are planning an event, visit my courses page for retreat and conference session options!  If you are a graduate student seeking a committee member or potential research collaborator, learn more about that here! Don't miss my new book, The Heart of the Doula: Essentials for Practice and Life.

Feedback from Dr. Gilliland's Course Participants

  • I gained an amazing amount of confidence in my myself and my abilities!  THANK YOU!

  • Amy can talk about sex, I mean like really intimate stuff, and I feel totally comfortable.  How does she do that?  

  • “Amy is a visionary in our field.” – Penny Simkin, PT, author and founder of the modern doula movement
