We are knowledgeable, nurturing women who provide evidence-based care and empowerment to women before, during and after the birth or adoption of a new child.
Our mission is to support and educate parents in creating a comfortable fulfilling transition from pregnancy, through labor and into the postpartum period.

What We Do

Pregnancy Concierge

Get extra personal support throughout the entirety of your birthing journey.

Your pregnancy doula is available to answer questions & concerns until after baby comes. Let us help you prepare your home and life for your new baby.

Labor Support

In pregnancy, your Birth Doula learns about your concerns and priorities for the birth. During labor, your Doula supports you continuously. She offers comforting touch and massage, emotional support, and reassurance in the birth process.

Post-Birth Support

A Post-birth doula provides loving support so that the new parent feels well nourished, well rested, with their household in good order so that they can focus their energy on the new baby. Each family’s needs are different, so the services provided by your doula will vary to accommodate your family in the best possible manner.

Lactation Support

In the past, breastfeeding wisdom was passed from generation to generation; over the years, a huge gap has emerged. Although it is one of the most natural, healthful ways to feed and care for your newborn, breastfeeding is a skill that must be learned by both. Whether you are having pain, baby is gaining slowly or you just have questions and need reassurance that breastfeeding is going well, our IBCLC can be there to walk you through the journey that is breastfeeding.

Placenta Encapsulation

The human body has created a beautiful new life and an incredible organ.  The amazing placenta grows when needed and is expelled from the body when its job is through. It provides all a  baby needs to grow and flourish inside the uterus.  This organ will continue to heal, and assist the your body well after a your baby has been birthed.
Experts agree that ingesting the placenta slowly reintroduces the hormones into the birthing person's system and may ease hormonal fluctuations
