Jacqueline G. | Birth Doula in CA

La Madre Doula Care

    Practice overview

    The journey into motherhood is nothing short of transformative. Yet, our modern lives lead us to believe that pregnancy and birth are something you push through and quickly bounce back from. La Madre Holistic Practice is the antithesis of modern day practices . I want to encourage you to take it slow, to really savor your pregnancy and love your expanding womb. To nourish your body and your baby with the optimal foods during pregnancy and postpartum. To move and balance your body so it may work in symphony with the mechanics of gestation and labor. To connect with your baby through breathwork and journaling while pregnant, and through loving touch and bonding once they've arrived. I believe every woman deserves a loving, knowledgeable, grounded companion by her side during pregnancy, labor, birth, and postpartum. My ultimate goal is to Mother you in whatever sense of the word that means to you, so that you may best Mother your baby. To mother you during your pregnancy with reassurance and guidance in making the decisions to best support your desired birth. To mother you during your labor with strong yet gentle, knowing hands and a soft voice. To mother you during your postpartum with warm, nourishing foods, healing touch and body work, and a non judgemental, open heart that is here to hold you during this most vulnerable and beautiful time.

    Care philosophy

    Hello and welcome! My name is Jacqueline Garcia, you can call me Jackie :)

    I have a passion for birth and postpartum and I have been called to support women in this metamorphic transition. After the birth of my first child, I found myself immersed in this world and want nothing more than to be that loving energy beside you during your birth and that sacred time postpartum.

      Jackie was absolutely amazing. My birth was flawless and a major part of it was because of her. She helped keep me calm and relaxed through each rush and my baby was delivered safely; it was such a magical experience! I could not recommend her enough

      My pregnancy was complicated, scary, and emotional- as many were in 2020. But it was also one of the most magical, calm, tender and balanced times I’ve ever experienced in my LIFE. Jackie was a KEY component in this balance and strength. What she provided me was more than just a service- she was a GIFT to myself and my family with the support, knowledge, compassion and always provided a SAFE space for me to lean into the woman and mother that I am and want to become.

      Also- the support she gave my spouse was so helpful especially while I was on bedrest… she gave him help with nutritional meals up until my son was born 2 months early.

      She is just a well rounded and loving human being!
