Welcome to my website! I'm glad you have taken a moment to check out what I have to offer. Let me first begin by saying I know this is NEW and maybe STRANGE to some of you. My husband and I did not know hiring a doula was even an option when I was preparing to birth our children.
The more you know, right? I am on a mission to end that cycle of woman saying "where were you when I was having my children?". Well, not only am I here, but there is a growing wave of women who are also living out their life passion as professional doulas. We are everywhere.
I am your educator, advocate, partner, supporter, and honestly your biggest fan. I believe women are capable of far more than they give themselves credit for regarding childbirth and motherhood. I don't take the place of your current amazing village, I simply complement and provide structure to it based off your goals.
Let's take this journey together!

For years I have considered myself a nurturer. Nurture by definition is "to care for and encourage the growth or development of" according to New Oxford American Dictionary. I've always nurtured my friends and family, and for the past 10 years I have nurtured women during their pregnancy, birth and postpartum journeys as well as the women who seek to serve them.
My last name, bestowed upon me by marriage is Fletcher. The name Fletcher can be broken down as "one who makes arrows"! So you see I am the Nurturing Arrow! My purpose is to nurture women and launch them like arrows to their full purpose and dream. That can be done through the childbearing years or as a birth professional.
You will notice five arrows throughout my website. Those arrows represents each of my five Fletchers. My husband Dr. Phillip D. Fletcher aka "The Arrowmaker", me aka "The Nurturing Arrow", our oldest son Phillip "Nicollus" Fletcher aka "The Launched Arrow", our oldest daughter Najee' Nicolle Fletcher aka "The Princess Arrow", and our youngest daughter Nichelle Sherrie Fletcher aka, "The Butterfly Arrow". Each one of my family members represent a package of services available to you through Nurturing Arrows Doula Coaching Services.
