San Diego Team

The Team

We are a partnership of doulas and childbirth educators united in our common commitment to our organization, one another and the families we serve.  We are dedicated to providing families with consistent 
high quality support and services during pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period.

Our philosophy is to provide you with the information you need to make confident decisions, the emotional support to motivate you to the next level, and the physical comfort to embrace your labor.

Childbirth Educators: Classes typically include information on late pregnancy, labor, breastfeeding, postpartum, and newborn care. Childbirth educators also guide expectant parents in the practice of relaxation, breathing techniques, and comfort measures for labor.

Birth Doulas: The Greek word doula means woman caregiver. We now use the word to describe a trained and experienced labor companion who provides the women and her partner continuous emotional support, physical comfort and assistance in obtaining information before, during and just after childbirth.

Postpartum Doulas: Provides evidenced based information on things such as infant feeding, emotional and physical recovery from birth, mother–baby bonding, infant soothing, and basic newborn care.

 Prenatal Massage: is similar to massage during non-pregnancy in terms of the goals (relaxation, pain relief, increased circulation & mobility, etc.). However, due to the changes undergone during pregnancy, modifications are made. To accommodate a growing belly, special pillows, positioning and techniques are utilized to ensure comfort for both the expecting mother and baby.
