Our birth stories stick with us - often for life. Birthing matters.
Birth matters because it is a rite of passage into parenthood, because your choices should be respected and supported, and with fully informed consent. Childbirth is a human rights issue and our birth stories should maintain our dignity and our rights.
We strive to bridge disparities in perinatal support across race, gender, sexuality, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
Genuine, caring, and professional. We offer certified professional birth doula services and childbirth education for all expectant families, antenatal services for high-risk pregnancies, and postpartum doula support to help your family adjust to life with a newborn. Each of our services is tailored to you and your family’s unique needs by providing customized informational (I’m a total geek), physical, and emotional support every step of the way.

"Lindsay was with us 100% when we needed her…
She was so warm, calm, reassuring, and confident that I felt I couldn’t do it without her (although she maintained I could have). She helped me with positions, breathing, and bringing me back into the moment when I tried to run from it. It was so lovely to have her, it was like having a family member with us. Her gift to us is a reminder of how amazing my baby and I were that day.”
"Hiring her was one of the best decisions and investments we made...
One of the best things about Lindsay is how she felt like an old friend or family, someone I was glad was in the room with me during a time when I was my most vulnerable. I was unable to have my mom with me during labor and she truly filled that gap for me. Lindsay is amazing and I cannot imagine going through this journey without her! She is caring, knowledgeable, supportive and so much more."

"The best investment we made for our pregnancy and delivery...
Even during pregnancy Lindsay was such an incredible guide for my husband and me. She listened to our concerns and gave us studies and literature to read, taught us comfort measures for pregnancy and birth, and gave helpful advice about birth classes, lactation consultants, etc. As soon as Lindsay walked into the delivery room, I felt so calmed by her presence. She gave us the confidence and peace we needed to follow through with our birth plan. Lindsay had such great rapport with my husband and the hospital medical care team, everyone was just so grateful to have her there! I cannot recommend Lindsay highly enough!!"

"After one interaction, you will know she was made to do this work...
Tender-hearted, caring, empathetic, so very knowledgable, reassuring and incredibly loving - she is a gift. By the end of our time with her, it felt like she was an extension of our family. My husband had no idea what a doula even was when I mentioned it in pregnancy and now he says she helped him just as much as she helped me. Having a calm, confident, knowledgable person by your side to advocate and care for you is invaluable. Lindsay will always be so special to us!!"

"Lindsay was such a calm, confident, and knowledgeable support...
With my first pregnancy, I was very nervous about birth and all the unknowns. Having Lindsay by my side gave me the peace of mind I needed to have a positive, peaceful labor as I had always hoped. Lindsay is exceptionally kind and professional, and at one of the most vulnerable times in my life, I felt completely free to be natural and at ease around her. Thank you, Lindsay, for the compassion and generosity you showed me, my husband, and our baby girl. We are very grateful to have had you as part of our birth story.”
