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.

To put it bluntly, I love babies! I am fascinated by the innate, primitive, and beautiful ability of our bodies to create new life. My intention is to support you in having the most empowering, transformative, and safe birthing experience as possible. We are not meant to birth alone. As human beings bringing new human beings into the world, it is pivotal to feel affirmed and validated during our most vulnerable and authentic moments. I want you to look back on your birth experience and feel triumphant! No matter what you’ve been through in the past, or what you are envisioning this time around, I am here to 100% support your goals and help them come to fruition. I bring knowledge, experience, and skills to this position, but more importantly, I bring Empathy, Compassion, and Presence.

Care philosophy

What best describes Yogi Doula's philosophy is the word Sakti, which is Sanskrit for “The Divine Feminine”- meaning the moment when you embody your highest, purest form of intelligence and intuition. This transformative moment can happen during childbirth when you’re surrounded by unconditional support!

"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.

    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.

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.

We believe in the power of a woman’s body and if left to her inborn capabilities, most births will progress smoothly and naturally. As doulas this is what we love to do…. create an environment where you feel comfortable and safe so you can listen to your body and let it lead the way. It is beautiful to watch a laboring woman surrounded by love and support and we make it a priority to help the dad be the best support he can be.

Care philosophy

It is our desire is to come along side you each step of the way and help make this experience as rewarding and satisfying as possible. We recognize that no two births are alike and it is our privilege to help you discover the kind of birth you want and then doing what we can to make that a reality.

"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 was born to be a labor Doula! I love what I do and am humbled at the opportunities that my career has given me. I have been practicing for over 17 years and in that time, have helped close to 400 families bring their babies into the world. I began my career after having a less than ideal birth with my first son. I educated myself much better the second time and had such an amazing experience that I knew I had to help others find the same joy and strength that I had found in myself. Thus began Doula Baby! I want to be the help and peace that is desired during one of the most wonderful moments of your life! I want to help insure that the birth of your baby is everything that you want it to be!

Care philosophy

The experience itself. It belongs to the mother and her partner alone. To be able to enjoy this time, moms have to understand what is happening to their bodies, and be able to react based on this information. I want most to educate and support women about the process and to be able to go into labor knowing that this experience is only theirs and their partners, based on communication and trust.

    From a dad’s perspective… WOW! I don’t even know where to begin with how to explain how amazing it was having Jill there to help guide us throughout this amazingly wonderful and terrifying experience. To all the dads out there, having a doula like Jill will make your life so much easier when your partner is delivering your baby. Jill made it so I could concentrate on supporting and encouraging my wife so that I didn’t have to worry about a lot of the other stuff. The moment I fully realized the benefit of having Jill with us in the hospital was when something happened and Jill asked me to get the nurse to update them. If Jill was not in the room with us it would have been just my wife and I. There is no way that I would have known to go get a nurse and that was one of the scarier thoughts that I had. I remember looking at my wife and saying “I’m so glad that Jill is here” with a slightly terrified look on my face. Jill thought of everything and prepared me so well for helping my wife deliver our son. She is such a calming presence that you can’t help but stay calm and positive during the delivery. It was such an amazing experience that I honestly don’t know why we would ever not have her for any future pregnancies. Jill is like part of our family and will be one of the first people that we call when we are pregnant again!

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!

    Ellen was responsive and thoughtful throughout my pregnancy and birth. She frequently met with me to plan out my desired vision of a home birth. Although this was my second labor and birth, Ellen would often think of things I never would have on my own. She was always kind and patient with me and my other family members. During the birth, if I didn’t require her immediate attention, she was helping my midwives or tending to our oldest child. Ellen has an arsenal of comforting techniques and combined with her tender disposition and confident demeanor, I trusted Ellen to know what to do and when. Ellen even comforted my mother when she needed it. When Ellen was present, I felt safe and well cared for. She helped create the perfect atmosphere to welcome a new baby into this world and a can’t recommend her enough!

I became a certified doula 6 years ago. Since that time I have had the privilege of working with many amazing families as they welcomed their new babies into the world. I love to support my clients in a way that is personalized to them. I do my very best to help ease anxiety and discomfort, to create an environment that feels supportive and safe for giving birth, and to prepare my clients for life with a new baby.

Care philosophy

My belief about birth is that YOU should be in control. I am just here to support you. I trust that with the right information and support you will be able to make the choices that are best for you and your family.

I am a DONA-Certified birth doula. I help families work toward their goals for birth. I meet with couples a couple times before birth to find out their specific goals for during birth. During labor, I am there to offer emotional, physical, and informational support. Unlike a doctor or nurse, I don't have a shift. I am there continuously until a couple hours after the birth. I do not perform any medical procedures. I am there for support. I work with couples no matter what kind of birth they are planning whether it is a natural birth, epidural, or c-section.

    Kelly was an amazing doula to me for the birth of my second daughter! My birth experience did not go as I was hoping, but Kelly’s support and encouragement made a huge difference and made the experience much more positive! She took turns with my husband pressing on my hips during every contraction, let me squeeze her hand, was a support person for my husband, prayed for me when things got really tough, came in the middle of the night and stayed until morning, texted and called me before and after the birth and always let me know she was there for me, and was so supportive when I was not at my best. I don’t think I could have gotten through that birth experience without Kelly. Kelly is very knowledgable about birth, labor positions, comfort techniques, and breastfeeding. Kelly is an awesome doula!

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.

Ever since seeing my brother born in a birth center at age 7, I knew that an unmedicated birth at a birth center was my goal. After two amazing birth experiences (following three pregnancies), one with my daughter, and one as a surrogate for a beautiful baby boy in January 2015, I could not be more excited to help other persons achieve their own birth goals! While my official doula journey started in 2015, I have been supporting people in various capacities my whole life, and this was just the official next step. I received my birth doula certification through DONA International, and have continued to study the body, birth, and supporting the birthing person since.

Care philosophy

A doula is almost like a birth sherpa, someone who has walked the path, and can help people navigate the twists and turns of this particular journey. As your doula, I'm there to help people handle the intense emotional and physical aspects of birth, as well as help the Birthing Person tap into their innate potential to birth.

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 is the kind of doula every mama deserves! She is incredibly compassionate and listens so well. 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. She even made me a personalized birth affirmation banner for my hospital room. During my labor and delivery, she brought such a calming presence and was a warrior advocate for me the entire time. I am forever grateful that I made the decision to include Katie White in my birthing team.

I have been assisting family and friends with birth for about 12 years. I saw my first birth when I was 13 and knew the birth world was a perfect fit for my heart. I have three children, two girls and a boy. All of my birth experiences were very different, but my son's birth is what helped me decide to pursue my Birth Doula certification. I had overwhelming support from my midwife in such a way that his un-medicated, natural water birth was serene and one I'll never forget. My Birth Doula package includes two prenatal visits at your home, generally two hours long, support for your entire labor and delivery up to two hours postpartum (flexible), one postpartum visit in your home as well as unlimited email, phone and text support from the time of hire.

Care philosophy

I believe that every birthing family deserves support through one of the biggest transitions of their lives. I'm here to offer emotional, physical and mental support for my families. Birth is such a beautiful blessing and I want to ensure my families have the education, encouragement and comfort they deserve.

    My husband and I were referred to Amanda by a friend who was a former client of hers. Upon meeting Amanda, I instantly connected with her and appreciated her warm and confident presence. She is very well-versed in her trade and was a constant for us as we prepared for the birth of our first child, during child labor and beyond. Amanda was attentive to our needs and aware of surroundings. I felt confident going into child labor that Amanda was on our side and would do all possible to make it a joyful experience. And that she did!

Doula Services: FAQs

A doula is a professional that provides emotional, physical and educational support to new parents before, during, and after childbirth and into the early postpartum period. Doulas are companions who strive to give families a safe, positive, and healthy labor experience. They provide parents with evidence-based information and education on childbirth and are someone who the parent can turn to with questions and concerns about having a baby. Doulas also take an active role in collaborating with the parent to create a birth plan.

A certified birth doula offers advice and techniques to help reduce the stress that the parent often experiences during childbirth and provides you with education about different aspects of delivery and labor and what comes after.

They provide you with emotional, physical and educational support during your pregnancy, your labor and delivery and for the first few hours after your child is born.

A postpartum doula will support you for the first few weeks after the baby is born. They provide in-home assistance, including teaching you how to take care of your newborn, acting as lactation consultant, and can provide some night nanny services.

Yes, a birth doula can provide support during a Cesarean birth and delivery. Doulas are non-medical professionals and do not replace obstetricians, physicians, midwives or nurses.

It is up to you whether the certified doula can remain in the operating room during the procedure.

A doula can provide support during the birth whether it occurs in a hospital, a home, or another birth center of some kind. Doulas are there to support you in your desired birth preferences, whether that is a preference for natural, non-medicated, assisted, C-section or anything else.

  1. Give birth without the need for pain medicine
  2. Describe their birth experience in a positive way
  3. Give birth without the need for medical intervention, such as C-sections or vacuum delivery
  4. Experience a shorter labor

You can hire a doula early in your pregnancy to allow you time to get to know each other and to begin planning for your later trimesters, labor, birth, and aftercare. It is ideal to hire a doula when you are around 20 weeks along, but you can start looking for one before that.

While many people think that a doula and a midwife are the same thing, their educational background and job duties are different. Doulas are non-medical professionals who provide emotional, physical and educational support, while also offering actionable advice and guidance to new parents about how to nurture their baby.

A midwife is a certified nurse-midwife (CNM) or a certified midwife (CM). CNMs are medical professionals that are certified and licensed by the American College of Nurse-Midwives. CMs are also certified, but they do not have nursing backgrounds.

Doulas are not medical professionals; they focus on the emotional support for the parents and the family before, during, and after the birth of the baby. Their job is to provide information, advice, and support to the family not diagnose any medical conditions or provide medical advice.
