What I’ll be offering when I come back from Maternity Leave March 2024:  

Placenta Encapsulation - This is a process in which the placenta is inspected, cleaned, sliced & steamed. It is then dehydrated, ground into a powder and placed into vegan gelatin capsules for consumption by the person whom the placenta was birthed from. Utilizing your placenta in the postpartum time may aid in: human milk production, hormone & mood stabilization, pain relief, energy enhancement, iron replenishment and possibly more. All Placenta pills will come with a beautiful Placenta print for you to display in your home & an umbilical cord keepsake. This package is available for $350.


Sexual & Reproductive Health Mentoring - One on one session, getting to know your menstrual cycle, ovulation & sexual/reproductive health. Understanding your body to gain better control of your health & wellness through lifestyle changes, tailored to fit your specific needs. How to use a menstrual cup, tracking/charting your cycle, education on how foods, products & environmental factors play into the menstrual cycle, brainstorming questions to take to your doctor, guiding your child through their first period, sexual & reproductive education beyond what you were taught in health class $30 for one hour or $50 for two hours.


One-on-One Birth Wishing Session- Personalized One on One education for your upcoming labor, birth & immediate postpartum. These sessions include a copy of your very own "Birth Wishes" handout, which we will go over in detail during your session to give out to your birth team, ensuring everyone is on the same page. You'll leave with loads of resources to feel confident, educated, ready to advocate for yourself, prepared for your birth & more! These sessions can be done in person or virtually for a fee of $250, sliding scale available.

Certified Birth Doula

Sari Fein (she/her)

Rachamah Doula Services


As a DONA-trained birth doula, I provide physical and emotional support and education to birthing people during pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period. It is my deeply held belief that there is no right or wrong way to bring a child into the world. My goal is to help you have a birth experience in which you feel listened to, supported, and empowered. I support all births, including births with an epidural, unmedicated births, and Caesarean births; whether in a hospital, birth center, or at home. I affirm all LGBTQIA+ families, am trauma informed, and am actively working to become anti-racist.

Why Rachamah? In Hebrew, “rachamah” (pronounced ra-ḤA-ma) is the feminine form of the word “rehem,” which means “womb.” This term is also often used as a verb meaning “to show compassion,” which is a guiding principle of my work as a doula.

Postpartum Doula 

Ashlynn Smith

Nurtured Blossoms Doula Care 

Hi my name is Ashlynn and I am the owner of Nurtured Blossoms Doula Care. I have 10 years of experience working with children and families across the lifespan. I also have a Bachelor's degree in Social Work and I completed my postpartum doula training with DONA.

We say "it takes a village to raise a child" and my goal as a postpartum doula is to bring a sense of a village to families by proving quality support. I serve Western Massachusetts and Connecticut areas. I provide the following support:

Daytime Support - Consists of usually a mix of focusing on mom and baby and walking alongside you during your day. Daytime support can look different for each family and each day. My role as a postpartum doula can entail allowing mom and dad to spend some time resting, helping with breastfeeding such as educating on what a good latch looks like, feeding positions, and referrals if needed, education and help with newborn care such as diapering, feeding, swaddling, and soothing, providing emotional support and guidance on this new journey, processing your birth story, and helping with light household chores such as dishes, laundry, sweeping.

Overnight Support - The goal of overnight support is to help you as parents get rest while knowing your precious little one is in safe hands. This doesn't mean you won't hear baby cry at times, because every newborn wakes pretty frequently, but you can rest assured knowing someone is attentively comforting and taking care of your baby's needs. If you are bottle feeding then the postpartum doula would feed baby a bottle, change baby's diaper, and get them back to sleep. If you need to pump then we can wake you to pump and wash the pump parts so they are ready to go for the next pumping session. If you are breastfeeding then we will bring baby to you to nurse and take baby when they are finished nursing and get them back to sleep while you stay in bed and rest.

Meal Prep Services - The goal of meal prep is for me to focus solely on cooking you nourishing foods for you and your family to enjoy. So you can focus on more important things such as resting and caring and bonding with your little one or older siblings. So you have one less thing to worry about.

Birth & Postpartum Doula

Isabel Bishop

I am a birth and postpartum doula, currently only doing overnight postpartum and newborn care. I have been working as a doula for one year, and have over 12 years of experience with child and infant care!


My job is to empower you to trust your own instincts! I believe that too often parents are shamed for the choices they make during the childbearing year, but the truth is that no way is the best way, and every pregnancy, every baby, every night with a newborn is different. I am much more interested in learning about you and your needs than coming in with some notion of expertise! I can offer tender companionship, as well as guidance on healing, juggling responsibilities, and baby care. But when I come into your home, my assumption is that you are the expert on this family, not me. Whether it’s cleaning a toilet, giving you a foot rub, or dialing the number for your doctor or lactation specialist, as a doula I want to do whatever task, small or large, that will bring you a little more ease and joy during this time!
