MORE: more connection, more preparation, more support.

One or two private consultations just isn’t enough. Our classes and workshops help us nurture relationships with our clients and they also help our clients prepare for birth and early parenting with evidence-based information and community support from other families in the Silicon Valley. Our comprehensive curriculum covers the essentials you’ll need to prepare for a positive experience, through pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and beyond.

We walk our talk: sustainability and self-care are non-negotiable, for our clients and for ourselves.

We work as a team to support each other so that we can offer you the highest level of truly continuous support in labor and birth from a fresh, well-rested, fully-present doula that you know and trust, on-call for you 24/7. We don’t work with rigid shifts; rather we weave a flexible fabric of support so that our team is available no matter what comes up during your birth.

You define positive birth and parenting, we'll support you, 100% judgement-free.

We know birth and we know babies, and, we also know that you are the only expert of your ideal experience. We provide the tools you’ll need to make informed choices as you move through the childbearing year, and then we show up, with no agenda, helping you achieve your unique vision for a positive experience.

You want a birth nerd at your side...

Our clients benefit from the thousands of hours we’ve spent teaching prenatal education and providing labor and postpartum doula support informed by our intuition and evidence-based best practice. As part of our commitment to stay up-to-date on the latest research, we engage in ongoing professional development and professional peer review. Oh, and we’d like to think that we’re a pretty fun team to work with. If we don’t hear the occasional giggle-snort, we’re probably doing something wrong.

Birth & Postpartum Doula, Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC), and Infant Development Parent Coach

Throughout my career working with families, I have never ceased to find wonder, joy, and amazement watching a family grow and develop. After becoming a mother myself, I became a doula to help parents move through the childbearing journey with ease; to help them find their footing, find their voice, and find their confidence as their family grows. People say I’ve got the “magic hands” and and in some circles I’m known as “the baby whisperer.” I live at the intersection of science and spirituality and while I absolutely adore the work I do and the families I serve, nothing beats a lazy country drive, Star Wars marathon, or momming it up with my children.

Birth Doula, Childbirth Educator, and Placenta Encapsulator

I have been called the Jenna Marbles and the Mary Poppins of Childbirth Education.  Both fit to a T.  I have been supporting families for over 10 years as a doula, a breastfeeding counselor, and a childbirth educator.  I teach at Kaiser Santa Clara and Harmony Birth & Family.  And I’m commonly referenced as “the one with dreadlocks”.  I have 2 daughters, and love that I can support families in the births of their babies, since being a mom has been one of the most awesome, frustrating, and wonderful experiences of my whole life.

Birth and Postpartum Doula

As a freshly minted doula, I am in constant awe of the capabilities of a woman’s body. There is a raw and powerful beauty within a woman when she becomes a mother, and I often find myself reflecting on what an honor it is to be present to see it. Birth is such a uniquely personal, and deeply primal experience. To be a part of what can be a family’s most simultaneously vulnerable and powerful moment is an honor! When I am not waxing philosophical over the joys of doula-dom, I am cruising around with my two awesome kids & husband, taking snoozes with our lazy chihuahua Newman, and I am always the most zen creating something new and interesting in the kitchen.
