Pregnancy & Birth Services

Pregnancy and birth can be overwhelming. Having a doula on your team can make all the difference. Birch + Magnolia is here for you and your partner throughout the entire journey with customized support based on your visions and goals from pregnancy into early parenthood. That’s what makes our support so unique - it doesn’t stop the minute the baby is born. It has been our experience that birth is just the beginning and that the journey can be the hardest during those first few weeks of parenthood. Which is why all of our packages include a minimum of 4 hours of the hands-on guidance and nurturing of a Newborn Care Specialist. We know that in order to bring you and your family the best support possible from the beginning, you will be also equipped with a strong foundation for the journey ahead.
