Our Mission

We believe in the power of community.

Unlike any other birth & family support agency in Chicago, we provide you and your family with a community of experienced professional doulas, child development specialists and peers who support you unconditionally from the moment you join the community, through the first three years of your child’s life.

I think Shawna’s easygoing manner was very stress relieving. I was so anxious about it all, but she explained it in such layman’s terms that it made me feel at ease.

Margarita does a good job of getting parents to participate. We could be a quiet bunch, but she does have a way to encourage us to share and participate.

We couldn’t have asked for a more amazing experience with Shawna. She went above and beyond in all three phases of her work with us: prenatally, during childbirth, and post childbirth. There was never a moment that I didn’t feel supported and taken care of!

When Margarita came in, I immediate felt very comfortable and trusting of her. She exuded a sense of calm and confidence that helped to put me at ease.

We met Shawna at a birthing class and as we decided to hire a doula, we knew we wanted to work with Shawna. She has a calming presence, is sensitive, intuitive, and knowledgable. We are so happy we decided to work with Shawna. Through the laboring process she was an essential asset
First time mom, Chicago
Shawna’s services made a world of difference in our pregnancy and birth journey. Her knowledge, experience, dedication, and compassion made what could have been a confusing and tense experience much more manageable. The peace of mind that Shawna provided was an invaluable blessing!
