In the traditional model of doula care in the United States, a family would engage one doula to support them throughout their birth process. From prenatal care, through birth and postpartum care. While this is still the model in most cases, an important element of care has been left out, the village. Once there were many people supporting the mother through their journey, including labor experts, herbalists, and postpartum caretakers.
At Carriage House Birth, we recreate that village.
Carriage House Birth strives to provide women with a family system. The success of our model is grounded in the cultivation of relationships among the members of our collective. We believe that it is imperative for our birth doulas, postpartum doulas, lactation support, body workers, placenta encapsulationists and more to all interact with each other so that they feel comfortable with calling on one another for support. This approach weaves our in-house relationships into a fabric that provides unwavering support for the families we tend… And to complete the Carriage House Birth vision, we bring it all together under one cozy roof.
