Hi, I'm Celia. I'm a holistic birth keeper and mother of two little wildlings. I work with families who want to break through the default options for birth.
Birth is a radical undoing of everything we think we know and an opportunity to discover our deepest strength and power.
You are absolutely capable of sovereign, empowering birth. Women know best what type of care they need, and when, where, and how they need to birth.
I am here to walk with you on your journey, to share my knowledge and experience, to listen, to advocate, to hold space.
Who I Serve
I live in Berkeley, CA and attend home births around the Bay Area.
Counties include Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco.
I offer prenatal care and birth support in-person. Prenatal sessions, classes, and virtual birth support are also available online via Zoom and accessible from anywhere.

"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." - Beth
"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."
