Are you in search of an understanding and knowledgeable companion to accompany you through the journey of labor and birth?
Are you looking for practical and emotional support as you settle in at home with your baby?

We're here for you.
We have been providing prenatal childbirth education, labor support, and help for families with a new baby since 2014, and we love love LOVE working with parents in Orange County and Long Beach! We have training through Childbirth International, Stillbirthday, and we are Birthing From Within mentors, so you'll find we may approach the experiences of welcoming a baby a bit differently than other birth professionals in the area. We strive to offer nonjudgmental support to everyone we work with, offering a safe space to experience the range of emotions this time of life can bring. We honor your journey into parenthood as a rite of passage, not just a medical event.
We offer a free in-person consultation so we can get to know each other and learn how we can best serve you on your journey into parenthood.
