Our doulas take a holistic approach to supporting and educating families through the incredibly transformative journey of pregnancy, birth, and early parenthood. We believe that nourishing foods and healthy lifestyle practices can serve as the backbone of a healthy family. We provide nutritional counseling specific to pregnancy and postpartum recovery, as well as helping parents implement baby’s first foods. Our nutrition philosophy is rooted in traditionally prepared, nourishing foods and herbal medicine.

We also believe that movement and breath is vital to labor. Whether you choose to use pain medications or to have a natural birth, embodiment is key to progress and progress is key to bringing your baby into the world. We will teach you movements that enable your body to allow baby to descend, breathing techniques to keep you calm and focused, and we will work with you to find coping mechanisms that will work for you. Every birth and every body is different, so we work with you to meet your needs.

We strive to hold a non-judgmental, honest, and empowering space for our clients to blossom into the healthy family they are meant to be. Our goal is to bolster the success and well-being of families for years to come.

“The process of becoming a parent is a labor of love, from pregnancy, to birth, to making food for a growing child. In this fast-paced culture, and with an abundance of choices to make, we are here to support you through your journey. We will lift you up and make sure you always know how strong you are.” - Jordan & Alayna
