Co-founders and owners, Amber DeLoof and Jillian Potter, are passionate about supporting families and being a part of their community. They originally met through networking in 2015 and from there, a friendship was formed around their passion for community and birth. In 2018, Amber and Jillian decided it was time to put their doula skills to work in their community and Potomac Birth Services was born!
Potomac Birth Services is committed to providing compassionate and professional care to families as they navigate pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period.
