Birth Doula & Founder | she/her
My philosophy of childbirth is rooted in the belief that birth is a sacred transformation and that all birth givers possess the innate power and wisdom to birth physiologically. I believe that birth naturally unfolds when the birthing person follows their intuition, is in a calm and peaceful atmosphere, and is surrounded by people they love and trust.
As a doula, my role is to support my clients and to be a guide when called upon. I encourage my clients to follow their instincts and to have faith in their bodies, their baby, and the birthing process. I am humbled to be a part of this transformative experience and to bear witness to each birth giver’s powerful embrace of their inner strength, insight, and courage.
I use sensory techniques to create a nurturing and comforting environment. This includes aromatherapy, massage, and encouraging words and affirmations. When needed, I also draw upon my Spinning Babies training to address baby misalignment and body imbalance.

I was inspired to bring more doulas together to support each family as a village. By working together, we support our clients with our combined knowledge and skills and can provide a greater variety of services and resources. Through our collective energy, we create a stronger, more connected community.
Our collective offers classes, workshops, and free support groups to prepare for birth and postpartum care. With the excitement that surrounds the arrival of your baby, postpartum care is often an afterthought. We believe that taking care of yourself in the fourth trimester is essential, and we are here to support you every step of the way.
Notes of Appreciation for Becca
“Where do I begin, Becca gave me my dream birth after my first daughter which was a traumatic c section. Becca gave me my VBAC something I have longed for four years. She supported me during the times I wanted to give up, and backed me up with any and all information I needed through my entire pregnancy. I LOVED LOVED LOVED working with Becca. She supported my birthing partner and I with love, snacks, information, and essential oils. Back rubs during contractions, encouraging words, soft music, and patience- so much patience. Birth is hard and the stronger your team the better! I couldn’t have asked for more of an amazing birth! She came to my house for the TWO DAYS of labor at home I went through and stayed for the 12 hours in hospital, 4 of which was pushing. Having her there helped my partner get a break for a nap or a meal. He was so appreciative of that. She was such an amazing support system really for the entire team not just me. SHE WAS THE MOST AMAZING HUMAN IVE EVER HAD BY MY SIDE AT SUCH A PIVOTAL MOMENT. Thank you for your doula services. I highly recommended everyone to have a doula and specifically DOULA services by Becca”
“I couldn’t have been any happier with the service she had provided me and my new family. Since the first day I had met Becca she was always on time and always there for us through the whole process. When she says call me at anytime of the day, she means it. Whether if it was at 2am 4am she was there to pick up the phone for us. As a man who’s never experience a birth I can say that having Becca there with me was a major help! I couldn’t have done it without her. Once it was time to head to the hospital she was quick at getting there. As soon as she arrived she helped me out by being prepared to head out and what to take to the hospital. As we were there she explained to me everything the doctors were saying and what each point meant. With Becca being there at the hospital it gave me time to sleep and eat while she looked after my wife. While Becca being there and being in labor for 2 days she was kind enough to let me rest. When it was time for the birth she was in the room with us helping and encouraging me and my wife to not give up during every second of the process. At the end I can 100% say that any male needing help or not sure of what to do I recommend having Becca there by your side. She will NOT let you down. I’m very blessed to have had Becca with me on my journey as becoming a father.”
“Going through a first time pregnancy during a pandemic and dealing with numerous isolating protocols like going to doctors appointments alone was very stressful. I was lucky to find Becca at 8 months pregnant while I prepared for the big day. Although it was very late into my pregnancy Becca made sure to give me comfort and reminded me to stay relaxed and enjoy the last few weeks of pregnancy. We talked after every doctors appointment and She answered all of my questions and concerns which was very helpful! I was so happy to hear that just one day prior to my labor and delivery protocol had changed and doulas were now allowed in the labor room! This changed everything Becca was with me through it all from being on the phone with me while I was in early labor to arriving at my home and then heading to the hospital when the time was near. I trusted her completely and she was so much help not only with giving me peace of mind but also physically. Helping out with adding pressure to my lower back, essential oils, and oh the fan! Best little gadget that helped me get through transitioning. She’s also an awesome photographer so you get two in one! I got the best pics welcoming my baby to the world! She’s the best! I can go on and on! Thank you so much Becca for everything! I can truly say we were a great team and it couldn’t have been better!”
“I am so grateful to have had Becca as a virtual doula for the birth of my first child. During this experience, she offered a warm presence and calming words, along with a considerate and supportive approach. I felt completely supported in my birth plan and I appreciated her wealth of knowledge while going through the birthing process. She is very passionate about birth work and about facilitating a positive environment and experience for all birthing people and their partners. I’m thrilled that she will continue to offer her services to many more families to come!”
“Both Rebecca and Carmen are truly great people with your best interest in mind. Rebecca was my Birth Doula this past May and I am so grateful/happy that I went with her. I was hesitant on getting a Doula at first but she definitely proved to be 1000% worth it. She supported me while my S/O had to drive 2 hours South so I would’ve labored alone if she wasn’t there and I definitely think her approach at calming me(light, diffuser, music) was super helpful. She also has an abundance of knowledge and resources as far as how to manage labor, things I would’ve never even thought to do. She was a big support to my Mom during the whole process even at our first meeting. She really had an understanding of our concerns and fears like my birth plan and she answered our questions without hesitation and guided us through all the things we should expect. Carmen was also a great support for me. She was around for my Postpartum and right away you can tell that she is a very kind soul and wants what’s best for you. I slipped into a bit of a depression and she helped me process a lot of things I was feeling and I was able to vent to her without feeling judged. I also want to emphasize that she cares for your physical well-being too. She was always making sure I was eating enough calories while I was breastfeeding and making sure I was drinking enough water. I can attest to the fact that it is very easy to forget to take care of yourself as a new parent so she did a great job at reminding me of the importance of maintaining my health and wellness. She also helped with stuff like sweeping our floors which probably wouldn’t have gotten done in who knows how long just because I didn’t have time so she’s very attentive and recognizes when you need help with something before you even ask for help. She also offered help with other household stuff and I do appreciate that. Both Rebecca and Carmen are not only great at what they do but they bent over backwards working with one of their friends doing a fundraiser for me and my son. As a fairly young women with a pregnancy I found out about at 6.5 months let’s just say I was not the most prepared. Physically or financially. So it was one of the biggest blessings that they were able to do that for me. That took so much stress off my shoulders. With all of that being said, If you are considering a Doula do not hesitate to reach out to these two amazing people. I don’t know what I would’ve done without them. Definitely a great experience.”
“Becca was such a blessing to have at my birth. She was the calming presence I needed and was a constant reassurance throughout my long labor. My midwives were at another birth for the majority of the time and I’m so glad I had Becca there with me. She magically never acted tired and was always there for me when I needed her. I highly recommend hiring Becca for your big day…best investment!”
“At roughly 36-weeks, my husband and I decided to proceed with getting a doula for the birth of our first child. We submitted an inquiry knowing it was cutting it close to our due date but Becca quickly responded and scheduled an initial consultation. Overall, she was very transparent, responsive and accommodating.
We were introduced to Andrea and it was a perfect match. We couldn’t have asked for a better doula to guide us leading up to, through and beyond labor. Her knowledge and gentle demeanor helped calm my nerves every step of the way. Andrea also supported and respected my birth wishes. She genuinely cared about me, baby and my husband–getting to know us and making sure our goals were met. During labor, she provided excellent physical and emotional guidance. I also felt comfortable in consulting both my husband and Andrea in pivotal decision making. She was 100% present, cheerleading and reassuring us through our unique (and of course not as expected) labor journey. My husband and I could not have imagined the experience leading up to the birth of our beautiful baby girl without her! Andrea is a gifted doula and we highly recommend her. Thank you!”
“So thankful to have had Becca with us for the birth of our first little one! We were moving late in my pregnancy and she was flexible and amazing to be able to put my mind at ease. Being in a new city with no family support it was a blessing for my husband and I to know we had her with us and she was a gentle, caring, and calming presence for the entire labor and birth. Even when I had complications and things not go as planned she remained calm, helped advocate and ask the questions I wanted to know but didn’t have the strength in the moment to gather, and was always what we needed in each moment. Would highly recommend her to anyone as such an amazing doula that made our first little one such a positive experience.”
“Becca was a wonderful support to have during pregnancy, labor, delivery, and beyond. I didn’t find her until I was 37 weeks pregnant. I was stressed out about my birth team, but once I hired her, I felt at ease. She made sure to squeeze in my 2 prenatal visits before my baby was born. Once my labor started, she was very responsive and came quickly once my husband called her. During labor, her hip-squeezes were so helpful! And she stayed with me and supported me after delivery when I needed extra medical attention. I highly recommend her if you’re looking for a doula to add to your birth team.”
“I was lucky enough to have Becca as a doula for my homebirth in March 2021. She was wonderful!! She has a very calming presence and is so good at assessing when to fade into the background and when to make suggestions/comfort you. She also took great pictures at my request!! I was so thankful for how gracious and helpful she was during labor and after the birth. When my midwives weren’t communicating well with me, she was so thorough in helping me understand what was going on and keeping me focused on what was important.”
"I knew i wanted a doula but i didnt know what to expect, Im very independent & have a hard time asking for help or accepting care from others… Im glad I did & Im even more glad it was Becca.
When I met Becca i knew immediately i wanted her as my doula her sweet disposition & kind voice have a way of making you feel at ease, she truly loves what she does & it shows through her knowledge & expertise. She will advocate for you when you cant, always have your best interest in mind, & she will make sure you’re comfortable emotionally & physically. I had a wonderful labor… (i also had an epidural;) ) but aside from that, Becca made sure my body was in a state of relaxation, with lighting, foot rubs, & this incredible hip jiggle thing she did (to me lol) that i loved so much!! Thank you so much, Becca I could not have done it without you, you are so wonderful & if/ when we decide to have another baby i look forward to seeing you by my side. You’re the best!"
