—   Marcie Macari

To rise above what we are accustomed to, reach deeper inside ourselves than we are familiar with, and to see not only what we are truly made of, but the strength we can access in and through birth.

Birth is an opportunity to transcend.

We strive to help mothers feel mothered, cared for, heard and supported. As a result they feel proud, empowered, and confident leading their family and birthing on their terms with a support system. Through working with our doulas, our mothers feel an abundance of encouragement and unconditional love they may have never experienced before.

As birth and postpartum doulas, we passionately provide exceptional care to help normalize birth and serve real, raw motherhood. Empowering women to find their voices to hone in on their intuitions to trust their own voice. We encourage, support and care for mothers where they are and empower them to advocate for themselves.
