How we can help you
Pregnancy Support Services
We provide trained and certified labor doulas to provide support during pregnancy and birth. That sometimes means accompanying you to vital health appointments, offering resources to promote informed consent and decision making, and being present during labor as a source of comfort and empowerment.
New Parent Education
Online Education available at low cost or free
This information-packed class will cover all things that happen when labor begins!
In this class, we will discuss the third trimester of pregnancy, labor, common medical interventions, special situations, informed consent, relaxation techniques, coaching, breastfeeding during the “Golden Hour”, baby care, and more!

Did you know...
“Allowing yourself to be attentive to your postpartum mental and/or emotional vulnerability is one of the most selfless and courageous acts that a mother can make for herself and her child(ren). Honoring the significantly impactful and profound changes that you and your body have experienced can have tremendously beneficial short and long-term outcomes. Including, but not limited to, authentic relationship building with your newborn(s) and a more positive parenting experience.” – Ashley Shelley, LPC-MHSP
