“Birth is an opportunity to transcend. To rise above what we are accustomed to, reach deeper inside ourselves than we are familiar with, and to see not only what we are truly made of, but the strength we can access in and through birth.”

Pregnancy & Birth


Hi, I'm Celia.

I'm a radical birth keeper and educator.

I believe that all women are capable of giving birth in their power.


How birth unfolds is somewhat unpredictable - but with education, mindset, practice, and support, you can give birth confidently and powerfully - no matter what turns your birthing takes.

I support women in following their instincts and wisdom through pregnancy, birth and motherhood.


I’m looking forward to working with you to achieve your ecstatic birth.

"Working with Celia as our home birth doula was such a gift. She gave my husband the opportunity to get some much needed sleep, eat meals and know that I was in good hands. Her ability to stay grounded in her body allowed my nervous system to follow suit. We both so appreciated her calm and graceful presence and I found that she was so able to help my body clear out tension in between contractions. We had a wonderful experience and highly recommend her!"

"Thank you so much for gifting us the knowledge and empowerment through HypnoBirthing - we now not only have a different relationship with birth, but also with ourselves... HypnoBirthing prepared us for the labor we've planned, but most importantly, the part of labor that we did not plan. For that, we are forever grateful. Welcoming our daughter's passage into the world has been the most profound and beautiful experience we've ever had, and thank you for holding a space of love for us."

Beth E.

"My partner and I were so very lucky to find Celia and have her as our doula! It was our first pregnancy and I ended up having a very long labor (more than 72 hours!). Prior to birth, Celia prepared both of us with what to expect and helped us to process what was important to us moving forward. During the actual labor, Celia was such a calm and supportive presence. She made sure I was hydrated, that my wife could rest, helped me get into different positions to manage my pain, and so much more! I am very grateful that Celia was there to help us with the most difficult and most amazing experience of my life."

This group is a safe place to share knowledge and experience, ask questions, find and receive support. It gives inspiration around the topic of pregnancy and childbirth, and a community to walk on this journey with. I look forward to connecting with you!


We spend a lot of time preparing for birth, but have you planned for your first weeks after birth?

Are you confident that you have a plan in place to help you recover from the hard work of giving birth while also bonding with your new baby and making sure normal day-to-day responsibilities are taken care of?
