Birth Doula Services
Birth doula services bring emotional and physical support, along with resources and birth preparation to an expecting family prenatally, during birth and shortly after.
Postpartum Doula Services
Postpartum doula services come with endless resources, support and guidance during the transition into parenthood from the first few weeks to a few months postpartum.
Childbirth education helps folks turn fear into power, increases the likelihood of a spontaneous vaginal birth, is a practical way of preparing for birth and informs your intuition.
Placenta encapsulation is a process where the placenta is transformed into capsules that can be taken during the postpartum chapter. Reported benefits are balanced mood, increased milk supply, energy boost and more.
We recognize how important it is to find community so we lead support groups for: pregnancy and postpartum. Our warm & non-judgmental groups are held weekly and are a time to connect with others who are in a similar chapter of life. Join us!
Lactation education includes information on positioning, latch, newborn cues, troubleshooting things like mastitis and low supply, pumping and more. Bring your questions and learn in a group or private setting.

Bless the Mama ceremonies are a way to celebrate the pregnant person in a sacred, intentional way. Unlike a baby shower, this ceremony is uniquely created with the recipient in mind as close friends & family gather to share in this new chapter.

Jenny was so helpful during my labor and delivery. She provided such great emotional support and made me feel so safe. Could not have had a better experience!
I was on the fence in the beginning about whether I really needed a doula or not and once I decided to get an epidural I really wasn’t sure I needed the extra support as my original birth plan was to go unmedicated which is why I wanted the extra support to get me through the contractions. However, Melissa was amazing and I’m so glad that we had her there. She’s been a great resource throughout the pregnancy, birth and postpartum and I would 100% be interested in working with her again if we decide to have another.
I loved that I had options of a few doulas and had zoom meetings to see if we would be the right fit for each other. Thank you so much!!
So glad I had a doula! It’s been so helpful both during pregnancy and postpartum. The overnight stays are the best!
Thank you! This service was absolutely essential! You made it all very easy, very comfortable, very secure!
