The Birthing Place

a center for health wellness and family

About

We are a team of experienced, BIPOC local doulas and birthing professionals serving families in search of a safe, serene, and deeply supportive alternative to birthing low-risk pregnancies in hospitals. We see birth differently and are committed to creating a space for families who want a more holistic, natural, and safe experience of childbirth. Our approach in providing individualized prenatal, birth, and postnatal care reduces maternal and infant stress and provides family support beyond what is traditionally available in hospitals. Our goal is to create a sanctuary that offers personalized loving support for the planning, expectant, and newly blossomed family.
