Anita Butler is a certifed doula in Sacramento as well as a Certified Lactation Consultant

Anita Butler - BA,IBCLC, HBCE, CD/PCD(DONA)Renegade tamer of birth fears, postpartum overwhelm, and breastfeeding bugaboos - oh, my!


Anita Butler was first trained as a birth doula in 1992, and participated in a doula research project in 1993-1994. After focusing on her own family (which included two teenagers and a preschooler at the time) for the next few years, she then began pursuing this work in in earnest in 1998, assisting a licensed midwife in her homebirth practice.

During the following two years, she completed a significant amount of midwifery training, earned two childbirth education certifications, and doula certification (DONA). Then, suspending midwifery training, at least "for now," she turned her focus to teaching, birth doula work, and in 2006, completed her Bachelor’s degree in Maternal/Child Health: Lactation Consulting, as well as the required clinical hours to qualify to take the International Board of Lactation Examiners exam. She has been an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant since 2006.

"I am so blessed that my work involves me in the lives of young families during this unique, precious season," she marvels.

At this time, she considers herself honored to offer HypnoBirthing® classes and is affiliated with the HypnoBirthing Institute, lactation consultations, and postpartum doula services.

Satisfied Anita Butler Client
"After working with two other lactation consultants, our birth doula, Jen, introduced us to Anita. I was extremely reluctant to work with another LC but Anita was truly a miracle worker! Within minutes of meeting our baby she immediately understood what our problems were. She was very reassuring that we would be able to successfully breastfeed and developed a plan of action. Within days it was like we had never had a problem! Since then Anita has continued to support and encourage me as needed. She has not only made feeding a pleasure but also helped me develop a strong bond with my baby. Thank you Anita!!!" Anissa Mawer
