Caring, compassionate doula support from pregnancy through sleeping through the night.

Having a baby is one of the most memorable times of your life.
From the moment that home pregnancy test points to + …
To the first time you hear your little one’s heartbeat…
To that moment when you get to hold them in your arms…

And it can also feel...overwhelming, confusing, and a bit scary.

With our doula support from pregnancy through parenting, you can feel at ease. You can go into birthing with confidence, parent well rested, and feel prepared the whole way through. That’s the ideal.

We are not currently accepting Birth Clients

Feel reassured you have an expert in your corner so you can just be present in the moment

Feel prepared,  so you can go into birthing your baby confidently

Feel cared for and comforted during the entire labor & birthing process, even if it goes well into the night or following day. (It’s called labor for a reason, right?)

Feel in control! We'll help you navigate the hospital and communicate with your care team, so that you are always the one making the decision.

With some of the most experienced doulas in town, we can help you adjust if things don’t go to plan. Birth is beautiful, but it can be hard to plan.

Thank you for all of your overnight and postpartum support. We were able to get more sleep, have a baby with better sleep habits, and enjoy our baby more. They are worth every penny. Only regret? Not having their services when we had our first." -Chris, 2nd time dad

Tiffany was a dream come true...literally. We were struggling with a baby that struggled to sleep, couldn't put herself asleep to save her life and suffered from acid reflux. Tiffany was incredibly supportive. We had her come for 72 hours because we felt like we really needed it, and we did, but when she left our baby was putting herself to sleep, sleeping many more hours a day than ever before and was well on her way to sleeping through the night. That was over a month ago. Our baby only continued to become a better sleeper and Tiffany also made me feel as though she was there to support me when needed. She of course still has reflux, but is sleeping comfortably flat on her back and seldom ever fusses. I highly recommend hiring Tiffany!" -Abigail Hawkins

not one size fits all

our approach is different

Instead of a single doula (who is running around from birth to birth, possibly stressed and overworked) we work in teams so you are always supported. This means your doula is always present when she’s with you.

You choose a doula team that fits the style and dynamic you desire and they will be with you every step of the way.

All of our teams are 100% committed to the work they do. They also each have their own unique specialties and traits, which is why we never assume our teams are one size fits all. Who you ultimately work with is up to you. We support all birth plans and families.

Our doulas are NOT hobbyists - we take our work seriously, and are well-trained and care deeply about what we do. Birth is our business, but it’s also our passion. All of our doulas are experts.  

Whatever your plan, we’ll support it

Water birth? Check. Epidural? You’ve got it.  Home birth? We’ll be there. Prefer the hospital? We’re there too. Breastfeeding? Check. Bottle feeding? Check. Unsure which? We can help! Caring for a newborn? That’s our speciality. Getting your baby to sleep through the night? We can help!

Our clients choose us time and time again because they feel cared for in the hands of experts.

Doctors and midwives refer us because they know our professionalism and expertise means a more comfortable experience for their patients.

Working with Birthing Stone means: 

A team by your side who you can count on to guide you toward a more comfortable labor and delivery, so you can experience the pleasure of your first moments as a parent with less worry and stress.

A feeling of connection and support that has nothing to do with your particular birth plan and everything to do with your family feeling well taken care of and connected.

That unforgettable experience of bringing your baby home for the first time without the worry. This time of your life should feel exhilarating. It’s the one time you’ll bring them home for the first time. You deserve to be present in that moment.
