Collective Hearts Doula Care
We have been supporting families together for 3 years and provide back up support for one another. At this time our collective is working with repeat clients only as we all 3 navigate new additions to our own families! 
Our Philosophy

When invited to journey with someone through their pregnancy and birth, we become an ally, a buddy, someone to walk beside them and to lean on when needed.  Our only investment is in the individual’s sense of safety and that they have access to the information, resources, and tools they need to promote their own well being. While we believe that, most of the time, birth is a natural and safe passage for parent and baby without interruption or intervention, we fully support every person’s choice to use whatever tools they choose and to make consensual decisions regarding their own bodies and babies. The families and individuals we work with come from very diverse racial, economic and gender make-ups and we invite all clients to share any information or wishes that might help us provide respectful care.
