everybody wants to feel supported, right?

We think so! Our doulas are passionate about making the process of before baby, labor, birth and after baby, a breeze for our clients. Our support professionals are experts at providing education, instilling confidence and fostering connection.

Our pregnancy & birth doulas help you work through all the emotions of these rapid body and life changes and massage your back in that perfect spot when you’ve been laboring for hours. Our postpartum doulas will sit with you and listen without judgment of the choices you make. Bringing a precious baby into the world is no easy task and no one was meant to do it without help…
and lots of it!

Everyone feels their best when they are well supported. We’re readily available to provide that support, whatever that looks like to you… no judgement, no delay just a helpful hand and a listening ear at the moment you need it most.

So, this sounds great… how do I learn more? Simply fill out the form below. Next, we’ll send you an email with our full welcome packet. This is where you can find information regarding our services and fees. We can’t wait to meet you!

You know your family, and we know birth & parenting. With our nonjudgmental support and your unique choices in mind, we’re going to make a great team.

Mariah and Chrissy are both so warm and kind. They are so passionate and knowledgeable, but they also truly take the time to listen and understand. We attended several of the classes, and found them to be both educational and empowering.

Hands down; my husband and these ladies prepped me for one of the best days of my life. They were there for whatever I needed from the second my water broke until the moment itself. Thanks again, Chrissy and Mariah!
