The BirthWork NW Team

Hi There!

BirthWork NW is a labor of love. Soon we will have a forum for birth professionals, advertising and featured post opportunities, and a growing community of connectivity in the Northwest for birth workers and families alike.


Founder, Content Creator, Editor
Bryna Sampey, IBCLC is the founder and creator at BirthWorkNW, and she is thrilled to helm a new project to bring about positive change for families and the birth community. She has been working with families since 2006, and was certified as an IBCLC in 2010. Bryna wears many hats: She owns a private doula and lactation practice, which includes herself and a team of lactation consultants and doulas that offer home and office visits. She speaks publicly on a wide variety of topics related to birth and lactation, and is a parent educator for Legacy Health. When not working, embarking on fun side projects, or advocating for inclusivity and access in the birth community, she spends her time (usually outdoors) with her family in the PNW, especially in Hood River and surrounding areas!
