More About Us

Amber's Personal Story 

When I was eleven years old, I began begging for a brother or sister. "PLEASE" I would cry to my mom. And it was one of the most exciting moments when my mother told me she was pregnant! I was present for all the prenatal visits and birth. The birth experience shaped my perspective on birth because it was a birth without fear. And it was beautiful, to this day my brother and I are very close. 

When I was 15 I watched a movie called Guerrilla Midwifery, a birth movie that sparked my awareness about birth. Then on, I began studying more about birth and how I could be of service to mothers and families.

Why Work With Us

I have been serving and empowering families through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum since 2012. I have supported hundreds of families all over the world. And guess what? You can do this! You are made to give birth and the body has such a wealth of knowledge! Yet, with our current culture and health care we have made it a lot more complicated then it really is. 

I have a deep understanding and knowledge during this whole arc as families become new parents. Through the many modalities of knowledge I have learned over the years as a life coach, yoga teacher, midwifery, doula and Ayurveda coach I have many tools to support families in preventing if possible complications and creating a network of support for each family and mother. Therefore, supporting mothers and families live in more joy and health rather then feel isolated and fearful of the process. Many of my modalities I coach families through is preventative care which doesn’t just effect this window but years later through menopause. 

Your health through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum is essential to not only yourself but your family so you can care for your little one(s). Ayurveda says that the first 42 days after birth affects your next 42 years! My mission to support families during this process is so you have the most comfortable experience possible and enjoy the process while preventing complications and infections along the way.

Our health care soly focusses on the baby and the birth as the most important thing and that is vital. Yet, we need to put the mothers health equally first because when the mother is healthy, normally, so is the baby. Hence Healthy Mamas, Healthy Babies! 

In my experience there are so many books on birth and classes to take which can get very overwhelming and time consuming. I want to free up your time and support you feeling more confident as a parent. I have created a arc of support so you can get the right preparation through pregnancy, birth, and the first couple years after. With the packages I provide, in our practice we have only seen 1% Caesarian births, 75% natural vaginal births, 60% no vaginal tears and 99% exclusive successful breastfeeding. This is the type of statistics you should be getting everywhere in the world! If we prioritized individual, knowledge based and consistent client care then we would have better outcomes.  If this is what you want then I would love to support you on this amazing journey!

"After our baby girl was born we wanted to continue our relationship and kept Amber on for postpartum Ayurvedic therapy with Aubrey. Her partner Aubrey gave my wife incredible postpartum massages that she looked forward to each week; this was definitely the most relaxation and pampering my wife was getting those first weeks. Aubrey also made hearty and wonderful teas and foods for mom’s healing and lactation. Aubrey has great energy and genuinely took care of my wife for hours each day she was with us, she was very kind and supportive for my wife postpartum emotions.
Thank you Amber and Aubrey we didn’t regret it our decision for a second!" -Pete

"Okay, where do I start??
Aubery was my amazing therapist for abhyunga postpartum Ayurvedic care. I can’t say it enough how much it was such a healing process for me. Her healing hands and the feeling of the abundant warm oil all over my body soaking in as she performs the massage was mind blowing. My body loved the warm oil treatment sooo so much, so I would completely fall asleep and that never happens for me in any massages. Her unique ability of performing a high level care helped to expedite my healing process while I was having an amazing restful sessions. I remember my day one like it was yesterday and how much my body dropped in my session. It felt sooo amazing so my hubby encouraged me to request for her to give me the treatment twice a week and she managed to accommodate me. The treatment worth every penny. Receiving such a care was the best decision I’ve made for my postpartum recovery. Also, Aubrey is very thoughtful, gets to my house prior to our appointment to set up and made me tea at the end to leave by my bed side. She mostly had to wake me up quietly to let me know my session was finished and I felt sooo good every time. She has that calming spirit, her contagious smile and dedication to make sure you receive a quality, fully devoted time to you is noticeably awesome. My husband appreciated her, my family loved her, my mom even told her she loved her because she took care of her daughter, me.

Every postpartum mamma needs and deserves such a treatment. I miss Aubery’s presence in my house. I wish her all the blessings so she continues to touching the lives of many mamas. I would give her 10s and 1000s starts if I could! 💯 God bless Amber who found me the amazing Aubery" -Keaby

Nika Pappas

I am a Carriage House certified birth doula and a graduate of Columbia University where I received my MFA in acting.

 

I've recently relocated to Oakland, California after a decade residing in New York city.  Art and acting is still a big part of my life and ultimately one of the biggest contributors to my skills as a doula. My training equipped me with the ability to think and react quickly while also being deeply in tune with my body and the bodies of those around me.

 

As my friends started getting pregnant I became increasingly curious about how a birthing person transforms and copes through this transition. I am passionate about a birthing person's right to be fully informed of their choices and creating an atmosphere that allows them to take ownership of their birth story. I specialize in birth and postpartum Ayurvedic care.

Beyond the birth room and script work I love being outdoors, lounging with my cat, and exploring New York in its infinite options!

Alana Corrin

I found a passion for birth work after babysitting for multiple women who had traumatic birth experiences. Hearing their stories lit a fire in me to want to support women have an empowered experience! I am so captivated by the all and the amazing things our bodies are capable of. I love supporting women through their birth and postpartum as an Ayurvedic doula.

Nicole Fryer

My path to birth work began after the transformational experience of having my first child. During that time of pregnancy and birth, I found a new understanding and appreciation for the innate wisdom that women hold inside themselves. With a background in yoga I understand the interconnection of mind, body, and spirit during this sacred time. I specialize as a Birth Doula, Certified Postpartum Ayurvedic Caregiver, and Pre/Postnatal Yoga Instructor. 

Katelyn Davis

My path into doula work and health coaching is a bit unconventional. I didn’t study women’s health or dabble in birthwork as a young professional. But at 17, I watched my sister give birth to her first child and was forever changed. After spending many years in the tech PR scene, I decided to make the jump into full time doula work and health coaching. 

I work as a Health Coach in women's health, which lead me to learning Ayurveda. I work with families with Healthy Mamas, Healthy Babies as a postpartum Ayurvedic doula. I specolize in postpartum cooking and Abhyanga oiling massage for moms after birth to support moms heal and enjoy the first 42 days.
