Foothill Doula Collective
Valley Foothill Doula Collective
is a group of women who joined together in the belief that
the way to bring the human element back into the birth room
was to have a doula present. Though we vary in skills, personality,
experience, and services that we offer, the one thing we
have in common is the belief that women are powerful and
can have the birth experience that they want.
This is a method of natural childbirth created by Dr. Robert
A. Bradley and teachers that with adequate preparation, education
and help from a loving, supportive coach - most women can give
birth naturally, without drugs or surgery.
The Mongan Method is as much a philosophy
as it is a technique. The method teaches you that, in the
absence of fear and tension, or special medical circumstances,
severe pain does not have to be an accompaniment of labor.

for combined mental and physical health, Nephesh’s
services - ranging from chiropractic to massage and Pilates
to spa treatments – encompass body and soul.
The thing about new babies is that they invite many gifts.
And while some of these gifts are useful, often parents are
barraged with items they will rarely, if ever, use, or will
only find useful for a short time. I like to give useful
gifts, and I like to give gifts that last. More importantly,
I like to give gifts that help parents parent.
