Our Mission

Brave Birth believes in honoring and supporting the whole Doula, her professional work, her family and her spirit. We do this in a group model, where we are members holding each other in a supportive collective.  By fostering this community and mentorship for ourselves we reinforce this in our clients.  By taking care of the Doula, we are taking the best care of the client.  We believe in wrap around care and creating the most seamless transition into parenthood. 

At a quaint little coffee shop in Portland's Clinton neighborhood, two Doulas started a beautiful courtship...

Over sips of coffee and bouts of laughter, we soon saw in each other the same effervescence and aspirations. We walked away from that moment and couldn't stop thinking about the possibilities. The small flame that was created on that Spring day eventually became a great forest fire in our lives and Brave Birth Doula Care was born! Since that day it has grown into a beautiful community of support, respect, and love. In this life, it's such a gift to find a career that you are passionate about and the fact that we get to serve together, well, that leaves us just a little bit speechless. Our community is forever grateful for everyone who has supported us along the way. Our families. Our friends. Our colleagues. And our amazing clients.
