I serve all family structures by offering safe, continuous, informative, and caring support as they begin or expand their family. I am a trained birth and postpartum doula. I offer three continuous layers of support: prenatal, birth, and postpartum care. I provide wisdom, guidance, advocacy, and support throughout pregnancy and birth. As a birth doula, I offer unconditional, non-judgmental support and encouragement to the laboring woman, her partner and/or family throughout labor, delivery, and after childbirth. After baby arrives, my clients can rely on me during those crucial first moments as a family. I take care of household duties, diaper changes, and soothing baby so the family can get some much-needed rest. I provide information on sleep, feeding, infant care, and any other questions the family has, so they can feel confident in how to care for your baby.

Care philosophy

Over the years I discovered that becoming a parent does not mean you have arrived; it means your journey is just beginning. I believe a parent is always evolving. My children are grown now; however, I continue to learn from them every day. Parenting is beautiful and complex. I welcome the opportunity to help others begin the wonderful journey into parenthood.

    Tamara is such a caring individual and was an amazing doula. Having Tamara support us as our postpartum doula was one of the best decisions we made. My husband and I, to this day, do not know how we would have done it without her help – notably during the first few weeks when we, as new parents, had no idea what was going on or what was “normal.”

    Tamara is very knowledgeable, and in addition to her education and training, draws on experience with many families and her doula community to help answer questions and advise on anything from how to bathe your baby, breastfeeding, diapering your baby, to how to handle a fussy baby who doesn’t want to be consoled. She also helped with household duties such as, dishes, meal prep, and laundry.

    Tamara responds quickly if you text her with a question or concern. She always has a positive attitude and is so easygoing. She proactively suggests what she can help with if you’re too overwhelmed to even figure out what could be helpful.

    Her support to me as a new mom experiencing all the emotions was very patient and understanding. I always felt like I could talk to her without judgement, which was so important. After Tamara completed her time with us, she left us a gift package, which we absolutely cherish

    We would highly recommend Tamara to anyone!

Dakota is a Certified Birth Doula, Full-Spectrum Doula (birth, postpartum, miscarriage, termination and loss), Placenta Encapsulation Specialist and Ceremonialist living in Lyons, Colorado. She is also a student midwife who occasionally assists a home-birth midwife in the Boulder area and provides an assortment of other offerings for the childbearing continuum like Childbirth Education, Belly Binding, Council Circles and Mother/Parent Roasting, etc. Avidly studying birth since 2010, Dakota has always known that this was her “calling”. Through her years of doula and midwifery training in Bali, North Carolina, Vermont and Colorado, she deeply understands the importance of families feeling educated and empowered during their birthing experience and the impact that can have on the newborn child’s life, the family unit as a whole and the wider community. Dakota fiercely advocates for her clients in all birth settings and holds a larger vision of birth as a transformative Rite of Passage. She is passionate about holding space for clients who are interested in bringing more intention and sacredness to their birthing journey through a variety of ceremonial offerings (mother/parent honoring ceremonies, yoni steaming and sealing ceremonies, to list just a few). Dakota is also one of the founding members of The Mother’s Center in Boulder (www.themotherscenter.org). There, she holds donation-based council circles for pregnant and postpartum people in the community, as well as an assortment of other offerings like Kirtan (devotional chanting), meditation, community potlucks and many different types of workshops and ceremonies. When she is not at a birth or holding space at The Mother’s Center, you can find Dakota soaking in natural hot springs around the state, dancing the 5-Rhythms, sitting in women’s circles and probably using way too much ghee when cooking!

Care philosophy

"Matrescence" (according to anthropologist Dana Rafael) is the birth of a Mother/Parent. The Rite of Passage. It is with love and presence that I hold your hand during this Sacred Transition. And I honor your personal story. Each transition into parenthood is unique. Whatever the outcome of your pregnancy, I am here with you. I will advocate for and support *your* choice and *your* intuition.

"You have every right to want to birth a certain way, to be properly informed on your options, and to have adequate and genuine support to achieve as much of it as possible." - Noha Serageldin I am compelled to help mothers believe in themselves and believe in the extraordinary process of pregnancy, labor and birth. I have experienced the raw and beautiful nature of childbirth through the birth of my own 3 children. EVERY Mother should have the ability to advocate for herself and her baby no matter what color, shape, values, religious beliefs, or birth preferences! My deepest goal is to have every Mother feel educated, safe, and heard in order to have the most positive birth hour. I am also a Certified Breastfeeding Specialist (working towards my board certification) and if it is your wish, I can help you and your baby navigate breastfeeding postpartum. I also help with part-time/full-time pumping mamas if this is something you are considering!

Care philosophy

I sincerely believe it’s our duty on this planet to serve others and helping families at this capacity is an absolute honor. I will provide you with individualized emotional and physical support so that you are able to advocate for yourself and for your baby. In this I strive for you to feel heard and empowered so that you enter/re-enter motherhood in the most positive light.

That being said, birth is unpredictable and I aim to educate my clients about the numerous possibilities that could take place.

    My husband and I enlisted Ali’s services for the birth of our second daughter after our previous doula moved out of state.
    Ali is very personable and knowledgeable. The services she provides are the perfect mix of scientifically based information and holistic medicine. Her Reiki and Reflexology treatment during my pregnancy were an amazing treat.
    During my delivery she was essential in keeping my husband and I calm and grounded. Delivering during a pandemic meant I could not have the same amount of people as my first delivery, I had 5 (!) support people the first time around, and Ali made it feel like I had the expect same level of support.
    Ali met us at the hospital right as my contractions began intensifying after my induction. She helped me breath through the first and second stages of labor, rubbing my lower back, and reminding me to relax my face.
    Her calm demeanor and expertise are a must in any doula, plus her lactation cookies were delicious!
    15/10 would recommend.

As a doula, I deeply care about pregnancy, brith and the postpartum period. My doula journey started when I had my son at 24 years old and continued to grow. I have adored being a mother and having support from my husband, friends and family has been huge as I navigated pregnancy, birth and raising children. After becoming a mom, I became infatuated with everything surrounding birth and how providing personalized care can really have a positive impact on the mother's mental health and wellbeing. Being beside her every step of the way before and after birth, caring for her precious newborn and family are what helps moms feel safe, cherished, and important.

Care philosophy

The care I provide is steeped in understanding of what the physical body and mental mind goes through and needs during the beautiful complex of pregnancy and labor. I provide a calming atmosphere of knowledge of different positions to try and helpful tricks to let you have the most fulfilling pregnancy and birth that you desire.

    Carley, at Mother Magic Doula, has been such a help and bright light throughout my entire pregnancy. To begin, Carley has such a beautiful and caring spirit. You feel and know with each conversation and consultation you have with her that she cares and is answering your questions or concerns with so much knowledge, thought, and love. Carley has helped my partner and I develop and create a birth plan we are comfortable and knowledgeable with to welcome our baby into this world. She carefully walked me through each step of a birth plan so my partner and I could make the best informed decision. Thanks to her, we feel as prepared as we can be for a situation that is hard to plan for. Thank you Carley for your knowledge and love!

I am very passionate about doulas being a game changer in labor. With my second I had amazing doula support which I strongly feel empowered me to have the unmedicated birth I had longed for. I was initially drawn to this work due to that experience and truly feel I have found my calling in birth support. I am a very empathetic person who is highly motivated to help parents find confidence and joy in their birth experience whatever their goal or plans might be. I am constantly rewarded by being able to encourage and empower new parents to work through their anxieties and fears to allow them to focus on the joy and excitement of labor, birth and beyond. I also love being able to see the relationship and interactions between partners during birth. A big part of what I do is encouraging that dynamic and making it work for us during labor.

Care philosophy

I am truly a people person and delight in what I do! I love being part of the miracle that is pregnancy and birth. My eyes still well up with happy tears at each birth I attend. I love making connections with people. It is such a blessing to help families have a bit less stress or fear in their journey into parenthood. I work to meet families where they are and give them the confidence to succeed.

"It would be a valiant effort to ask your partner ​​to guide you up Mount Everest, but it is wise to ​hire a ​Sherpa. ​In comparison, to guide you up Birth Mountain, it is wise to hire a ​Doula." ​> LIZ FOSTER, DOULA & COACH < Pregnancy puts you on the threshold of a great rite of passage. To progress from "here" to "there" without getting lost, you need a guide and a map. ​"I am inspired by the way birth transforms a person from Maiden to Mother. It astounds me every time! When I walk into a room with a laboring woman, my heart jumps for joy at the opportunity to​ comfort her in that present moment, on her journey into motherhood." The keys to a joyful birthing experience are safety, security, preparation, support, and a calm mindset, all planned in advance, to be by your side for anything that should arise. ​​My aim is to activate these pillars of power in you and to embrace what is out of our control, the unpredictability. In choosing me as your doula, I do not judge the way you decide to labor (unmedicated, medicated, or cesarean). ​I respect your space by holding it with the utmost care. ​It is my highest honor to serve women in one of the most splendid moments of their lives!

Care philosophy

Hey mama! My name is Liz Foster and I am obsessed with making positive birth and postpartum experiences an outstanding norm for all. ​I was awakened to birth and parenthood when I birthed my son via emergency cesarean as a single mom. Never again do I want a mother to feel the fear I felt during pregnancy and birth, due to the weight of every little change and life decision.

I believe that commitment to the present, nature + self-love will give us the foundation for all that we need. I also STAND FOR & SERVE ALL BIRTHS! Woman's birth, BLACK BIRTH , LGBTQ+, and surrogate. PLEASE NOTE: I TRY to refrain from using "Mom, Mama, Mother, woman" terms only. To prove that all birth IS REAL BIRTH and all birthing human's matter! ? I am a Colorado-bred woman, passionate birth worker, Mother, and licensed esthetician. I have a unique drive to serve my clients to give them the beautiful, carefully planned, and cared for childbirth experience they have always dreamt of. Every birthing human has her own idea for her birth plan. I aim to customize every aspect of our time together, and even a little while after your baby (or babies!) is/are earthside! Some birthing humans desire to give in to their primal instincts and roar with each contraction and to give birth at home or outside. Some birthing humans prefer to deliver in the hospital or birthing center, with fairy lights and music. And some birthing humans want a combination. The possibilities are endless for your birth. I cannot wait to help make them real for you! To conclude, I have been passionate about birth and empowering women to have a positive experience, as they see it, ever since I gave birth to my son 10 years ago now. Most importantly, my support comes without opinions or judgment. I understand that you will make the best choices for your family and I am honored to be by your side as you do. After working together, I promise that you can settle into your life with a newborn knowing you have built a solid support system with me. I am looking forward to being part of your birthing team! Feel free to visit my social media platforms to get to know me as a Doula. If you are ready to go, or have questions about anything, contact me and we can set up a time for a cup of coffee and a chat!

I’m Cema – doula, mother, and advocate of the wild feminine. With a gentle touch, extensive knowledge, and infinite love, I work to create a birth experience in which you feel safe, supported, respected, and empowered so that you can achieve birth without fear and transition into parenthood with beautiful memories!

As a birth doula I am here to support you before, during and after baby's birthday. I will be providing you with resources throughout your journey to make informed decisions. We will have two prenatal meetings and during those meetings we will go over your birth wishes. We will discuss the benefits & risks of each choice you have, discuss what could happen, practice comfort measures including: rebozo work, counter-pressure, pelvic release, hip squeezes, positions to encourage baby's descent & anterior position and open your pelvis by 25% more. We will discuss how you can best prepare yourself for immediately after the birth of your child(ren). I will be with you at the onset of active labor and all the way through to 1-2 hours postpartum. I am there as well to take the primary support role so your partner can take a rest, nap, grab fresh air, eat, etc. More importantly, I am there to enhance our partner's role and so they do not have to remember everything you both learned during childbirth classes. If you wish to breastfeed I am there to help support a good first latch as I am trained in breastfeeding basics. During the baby's birth story I will be taking notes so we can discuss your story during postpartum. You will have 1-2 postpartum meetings to go over your birth story, support breastfeeding if you wish and to answer any newborn care questions. As your postpartum doula, I support the whole family as you adjust to welcoming baby/babies into your life. I will: -Nurture your family with loving hands and heart to meet you exactly where you are, offering non-judgmental support. -Educate your family by modeling behavior, observing and offering options. -Assess the environment constantly in order to best assist you and your family. -Refer you to resources and referrals, and assist you with the skills to seek out resources and referrals. I will care for your family during the first three months, by providing you with non-medical support and companionship. I will assist with newborn care & sibling adjustment (includes furry siblings), meal prep, household organization, offer evidence based information on infant feeding, emotional & physical recovery from childbirth and other issues related to the postpartum period.

Care philosophy

My desire as a doula is to support you in a way that allows and encourages your birth wishes to be achieved. I will provide support physically, emotionally, spiritually (for some) and provide you with resources so you can make informed decisions. Once baby(s) arrive I will nurture you as parent(s) and respect your parenting style to best support you during postpartum.

I've been drawn to birth work my entire life and have found such a profound calling in my work as a doula, supporting families through their own birth journeys. I've been a part of the medical field for the past 15 years and this work has led and prepared me into my role as a doula. I am passionate about supporting families, encouraging mamas to use their intuition to meet their babies and holding space for this transformative experience that is birth. The shift into motherhood and bringing baby home is intense and beautiful and I absolutely love working with families throughout their postpartum time. ​ I am a mama to two beautiful girls and my own unique birth experiences have helped fuel my desires to be a doula. My man and I have been married for ten incredible and crazy years. We love traveling, snowboarding and adventuring with our tiny tribe.

Katie walked through my pregnancy with me each step of the way, instilling confidence and peace as she educated and encouraged me in my journey towards a VBAC.

As a doula, I am honored to be welcomed along your families journey, helping you to discover and believe in your own strength, to trust your heart and body. To empower you!​ Experiencing my own births opened my heart to this amazing feeling of empowerment and connection with my body, my partner and my children. With each pregnancy I learned more. With each birth I chose a new path. I grew as a woman and as a mother. I wasn't educated on birth at first, I didn't know that it was a natural process, I didn't have the support that is so very needed while in this fragile state. My first two births weren't on my own terms, but through my third and fourth, I listened to my body, I learned to trust my body. This is what brought me to become a doula! -Jessica

Care philosophy

I will be there to support you from beginning to end. I'll be there to make sure you maintain and feel confident in your birth space, knowing that you are making the right decisions for yourself and baby. Keeping you centered and making sure those around you respect your birth plan, is my main focus! Support, educate, and empowering families to birth their way!
