Birth Doulas, Postpartum & Infant Care Doulas, NICU Support

We offer the best in personalized and professional doula support for pregnancy, labor, birth, and the first months postpartum. Tender Beginnings works to make the transition to parenthood a calm, confident experience for you and your family.
“The Doulas at Tender Beginnings] are all wonderful people who we were so happy to have chosen to be part of our birth team. We attended the Comfort Measures for Labor workshop, which was very helpful, hands-on and made me feel more confident about labor. We both had crazy busy schedules before baby was born, so Kate came to our home for a private birthing class. She is a wealth of knowledge on all things birth and answered every question we had. Jenn and Kacey were there for the actual birth and could not have been more amazing. Both supporting me and my husband when I had a very long labor after an induction. We were both mentally, physically and emotionally tired and I don’t know how we could have done it without their support! “

Birth Doula Services & Childbirth Classes
Nurture was conceived by Erica Manto Konya and born out of a desire to give couples the guidance and support they deserve in becoming a mom and creating a new family. My philosophy on birth and mothering is that women who surround themselves with caring, trusted supporters become mothers who are excited and transformed by their amazing journey. Your spouse or partner will never be left out but will be respected and valued for the integral role they play at birth.
I believe everyone should have access to a doula during their pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. As a doula, I am very committed to helping women achieve a positive, informed, and powerful birth and parenting experience.
