Our mission is to assist women in having the most positive and empowering birth experience possible. We do this by providing continuous emotional, physical and informational support before, during and after labor.
We believe that every woman deserves a doula. We aim to provide our services to women regardless of age, race, income level, sexuality, ability and religion.
We believe that women, when given agency and total support, can make any birth experience a positive one. From hospitals to homebirths, natural to medicated, every birth experience can be an empowering one with a Birthmark doula!
Belly Talks is a 6-class childbirth education series taught by the Birthmark Doulas and the Maypop Herb Shop herbalists.
Pregnant mamas and their support people are invited to gather to discuss their bodies, babies, and bellies in the Maypop Herb Shop at 1036 Franklin Ave.
Classes will cover all the basics of prenatal preparation, labor and birth, breastfeeding, and new baby care, with a strong emphasis on knowing your options, informed consent, natural and herbal remedies, and comfort measures to manage labor.

Having a fussy baby can feel very isolating and our providers want to help support you. Fussy Baby providers come to your home and meet with you and others who play an important role in caring for your baby. Being in the home provides the least distraction and upset of the family and affords the provider the luxury of seeing your baby in his own home with the people who love him most. A home-visitor will call you to set up a visit and typically spends anywhere from 1-2 hours learning more about your baby and how Fussy Baby can support you and your family.
Services are free and no family will be turned away.
