Welcome! We're so glad you're here! Growing a family can happen in all sorts of ways, with all sorts of ups and downs. It's a beautiful, complicated life transition that many of us navigate without true guidance and hands-on support. How do we know what we need as expectant and new parents? What if it's really hard to ask for help?
Our mission at It Takes A Village [Birth + Family Support] is to inform, encourage and empower expectant parents to realize their own best vision for a healthy and meaningful passage into parenthood. We are also here to lovingly support parents when journeys detour through unexpected or painful paths.
As doulas, we aren't shy with uncomfortable questions, difficult decisions or, even, those amazing mesh postpartum undies. We hold space for you and understand those moments when you are overwhelmed or even when you aren't "loving every minute of it".
We aren't just excited to hold your baby--we truly want to hold your hand. Parents matter. We care about your mental health, your birth or placement experience and what it all means to you. We are by your side for all of it--as your compassionate sidekick, amusing cheerleaders and dedicated sounding boards. You aren't alone, because it really does take a village.
Wondering if we're the right fit? Can't wait to meet us?
A doula is a trained professional who provides education, advocacy and intimate support to a birthing or newly postpartum person/adoptive parent, their baby and their family.
From various kinds of birth to infant loss to adoption, our team has experienced a wide range in weaving together a family, and we are honored to focus that experience, warmth and resourcefulness with your family.
What is most important to you is most important to us--we tailor our coverage around your specific needs and goals for birth, bringing your baby home and any challenges along the way.
