Autumn McDonald Cunningham
Autumn is a birth doula, postpartum doula and co-owner of Mama Luna Care. After the eye-opening birth of her son in 2000, Autumn felt called to seek ways to deepen the experience of birth and parenting.
Autumn began her journey by becoming a birth doula, working with private families as well as with the HCMC doula program. She was also fortunate to train under the author and creator of Birthing From Within, Pam England, and mentored hundreds of parents through her childbirth classes. During this time she saw the need of many new parents for more postpartum support, which lead her to become a postpartum doula.
Working closely with new families is where Autumn has found her true place. Whether it is working with babies with special needs, multiples, or simply families who need an extra set of hands or a good night's sleep, Autumn enjoys getting to know each family and their unique needs.
When Autumn is not burping babies she spends her time working on her other passion, Gaia Democratic Free School. Autumn is part of a group of women who started the only Democratic Free School in Minnesota. Autumn is Vice President of the school board as well as part time staff.
In her little free time she loves to spend lazy summer days in the back yard of her south Minneapolis home with her two kids, Rainy and Luna.
