Doula Minnestoa - Meet Terra Peterson Jonker.jpg


Welcome to Doula Minnesota! I am proud to offer professional doula services, childbirth education, and prenatal yoga in and around the Minneapolis and St. Paul area. Doula Minnesota was built on the belief that every person deserves to be surrounded by support when welcoming a baby. My goal is that every client I work with feels empowered and educated to make the choices that are right for them - and for everyone that is different. There is no one size fits all approach to welcoming a babe and there is no one size fits all package at Doula Minnesota. Whether you are interested in a birth or postpartum doula support, education, or prenatal yoga - I work to provide services that fit you and your individual needs. So let's find a time to chat. From hospitals to homebirths, birth to postpartum, welcoming one babe to welcoming multiples, Doula Minnesota is here for you.


Terra started Doula Minnesota to support families from all walks of life. Trained in Bali, Indonesia with DONA International, she has worked with doulas from 13 different countries and supported over 140 births across the Twin Cities since early 2015. With a strong background in healthcare related non-profits, she spent 5 years providing support to families and children through her work at Ronald McDonald House Charities, Upper Midwest. Terra is a trained Prenatal and Baby Yoga teacher and started providing Postpartum Doula services in 2017 after training with Childbirth International. She is a Childbirth Educator at Blooma and teaches both 4 week and express childbirth ed courses. Terra is an active volunteer for the Childbirth Collective and Everyday Miracles. Her passion for supporting families led her to start Doula Minnesota LLC in 2017 and she is thrilled to continue to offer professional doula and prenatal yoga services across Minneapolis and St. Paul.

Terra lives in an old St. Paul farmhouse with her husband and the occasional rabbit that likes to break into their basement. In her free time you will find her outside with gardening gloves or working with her other love - horses. She travels whenever she gets an opportunity and fills up on time with family and friends every chance she gets. It is her greatest honor to work with families as they welcome their little ones and she hopes to be able to provide evidence-based, compassionate care in the Twin Cities for many years to come.
