Hello and welcome to A Side of Crunchy!

Over the years since launching A Side of Crunchy, we have grown in so many ways. We started with having a blog and resources for family and have since launched Clarksville Birth Services. We provide doula services, placenta services, belly casting, informational classes, product reviews and so much more.

Our family is not your average family and via our blog, we are able to share our experiences with you. These include cloth diapers, babywearing, essential oils and more. In 2017 I gave birth unassisted, which opened my eyes to how incredible we are and how much knowledge can be held back. Because of that experience, unassisted pregnancy and birth are discussed and support with our services.

We want you to have the best possible birth and the way to make that happen is knowing your options. I would love to meet with you for a free consultation for birth services.

How can I locate something I am looking for?

Our friendly search bar can help you locate your favorite post or topic. You can also send me an email to asideofcrunchy@yahoo.com.

Can I join your mailing list?

If you love what you see join our mailing list. Once a week you'll get an email with the topics we have covered so you don't miss anything. Plus we throw in freebies from time to time.


Birth and Postpartum Services

Getting birth support means complete support and advocacy through your informed labor & delivery, whether it be at home, birth center or hospital. We also know that the placenta is the tree of life, the organ that provided your child with nutrients and sustainable life whilst they were in your womb.  Offering Encapsulation, Tinctures, Placenta Prints, and more!


As we begin our second year homeschooling we encourage you to follow our journey. As a mama of 6 homeschooling has its great and not so great days. We share all of them daily on our Instagram and Facebook page. On our blog, you'll find places to visit, activities we do and so much more.

About Carmen

I am a mother of 6 wonderful children and wife. I spend most of my days doing research on pregnancy, birth and postpartum between working full-time and homeschooling. I loved my pregnancy and birth experiences and seeing the difference each pregnancy can bring to the same person. After the birth of our daughter Faith, I began my journey towards becoming a doula. I was blessed to attend births with a midwife while living in Florida and now that I live in Clarksville I bring that knowledge with me.
