Amber B. | Doula in Sacramento, CA

The Flower That Blooms Doula & Sleep Services

    Practice overview

    I got started because I realized how little help the average family has when it comes to life with a newborn. I want to be a support system to those who need it and help them succeed at parenting. I am a full spectrum doula (which includes birth support, postpartum support, and reproductive health support). I am also a certified pediatric sleep consultant and can help with setting up healthy sleep habits from the newborn stage up through the first year. I am an advocate for you, for your voice to be heard, and for you to have the most research and evidence-based information possible when it comes to making decisions for you and your family.

    Care philosophy

    I am passionate about helping people into parenthood, whether that be for the first time or not. Bringing a new addition into the family can be an exciting time. It can also be a stressful and overwhelming time too. I know how hard it can be not to have your "village" and that's why I became a doula. I want to give you all the tools you need to feel like you are rocking this new journey.

      Amber’s sweetness and warmth made my spouse and I feel right at ease with her. As a plus sized woman of color with some medical field trauma, I was nervous working a white woman. Amber’s commitment to equitable care and allyship for marginalized groups were evident on her page and in conversation. In labor, I decided I essentially wanted no one touch me and Amber was able to guide me through breathing in an unmedicated water birth. That was the biggest reminder I needed and she knew it. I only wish we could have had her with my first labor, too!

      Amber is skilled, knowledgable, and compassionate. As a colleague, it has been a pleasure to work with her and I know any family who chooses her as their doula will be in good hands.
