My name is Ada Johnson. I am the loving parent of Button, who was stillborn in January 2015, and Simon, a rainbow baby born in August of 2016.

I have done community health education, birth work, abortion support and public health work for the last twenty years, attending births as a trauma-informed community midwife and Full-Spectrum doula. In addition to drawing on my own lived experience as a bereaved parent, I have attended numerous trainings about pregnancy and infant loss, including with Empty Arms Bereavement Support as well as the Institute for the Study of Birth, Breath, and Death. I have presented on several panels about my experience with infant loss and have taught a course on peer support and infant loss for Indie Birth. I am currently studying Somatic Experiencing, a body-based trauma healing modality.


I am always happy to do a free initial phone consult. This is a no pressure opportunity to talk to a peer and may or may not lead to you accessing my other services.
