The Support of Many
Each one of us Doulas are trained professionals who are dedicated to supporting and empowering you throughout your pregnancy and childbirth journey. We will be there to listen to your concerns, offer guidance and information, and provide emotional support every step of the way.
We hold our Mama Meetups every two weeks to provide a safe and inclusive space where mothers can come together and build relationships with each other that will last a lifetime.
Continuity of Care
Often times, medical professionals who may not be able to be with you throughout your entire labor, a doula provides continuity of care and is there for you from the moment you go into labor until after your baby is born.
Reduced Stress and Anxiety
The childbirth experience can be overwhelming, and having a calming and supportive presence by your side can help reduce stress and anxiety levels for both you and your partner.
& Improved Outcomes
Studies have shown that having a doula present during childbirth can lead to a reduction in the use of interventions such as Pitocin, epidurals, and cesarean sections. Additionally, having a doula can lead to shorter labors, improved infant health outcomes, and increased rates of breastfeeding.
Advocacy + Communication
We will work with you to make sure that your voice is heard throughout the birthing process. We ensure that each one of us know your birthing preferences and can help you and your partner communicate with medical professionals to ensure that you receive the care that aligns with your birth plan.
Benefits of a Doula Collective
Student nurse midwife in the making
As a devoted wife and mother of four, alongside being a proud sister, my life is rich with nurturing and love. I'm Jade, founder of Whole Mama Wellness Collective, where my fervor for cultivating unforgettable birth experiences shines. With years of expertise as a birth doula and childbirth educator, I'm dedicated to empowering families through their birthing journey, transforming each moment into lasting memories. Specializing in comprehensive prenatal support and postpartum care, my goal is to ensure that every family I work with cherishes the birth of their baby as a cherished milestone. Join me in embracing the beauty of birth and the unity it brings to families.
Cara Lee Kiggins
Hi! I'm Cara (she/her). I've been helping people prepare for and navigate deeply transformative and unfamiliar experiences for nearly two decades. I had a successful career leading advocacy programs for survivors of trauma in the nonprofit sector until the birth of my first child. In the past nearly ten years since them I have had the opportunity to work with hundreds of pregnant people as a Birth Doula, Childbirth Educator, and Prenatal Yoga Teacher.
In 2011, I married a man 18 days after meeting him! Together, we've navigated six teenagers and homeschooled our youngest child since pre-K. That little guy sparked us to co-create our homeschool co-op, Growing Together AZ. In 2020, I began my journey as a professional birth worker, and obtained certification as a birth doula. Every tidbit of education or experience has me hungry for more. My background in family development, early childhood education, and now birth work, fuels my passion to empower all people with confidence and positivity. My greatest advice for living, Believe In You. Always.
I am a wife, mama to two, adventurer, public health worker and postpartum doula. After almost a decade working in the social sector supporting youth and families, the births of my babies inspired my journey to becoming a doula. I feel honored to support families through the incredible transformation of birth and to help them navigate through the journey of the 4th trimester. I believe deeply in the "village" style of motherhood, and I absolutely love creating connections and building with our Whole Mama Mama's!
Certified Lactation Counselor
I'm Jess and I'm a wife, mom, registered nurse, and certified lactation counselor raising my babies in Central Phoenix! After experiencing breastfeeding struggles with my firstborn I was fortunate to receive help and gracious guidance. From that time, I was committed to becoming a CLC in hopes to reach and help as many lactating people as possible. I believe everyone deserves lactation education and support to facilitate a positive nursing journey.
Prenatal Massage Therapist
I come to birthwork after more than a decade in nursing, certifying as a massage therapist, and extensive yoga training. I am grateful that the skills I have gained over the years help me to provide comprehensive care to each family I encounter. I recognize the incredible rite of passage that birth is and strive to provide each of my families with valuable tools as they experience this sacred and natural event.
We are individual women + mamas with a shared heart for re-villaging our local community through birthwork. Nestled near Central Phoenix, we serve families all over the valley.
Our vision is to inform, educate, and empower each birthing person and their family on their journey into parenthood, and to provide families with the support they need to thrive in the seasons following baby's arrival. We strive to provide our services through a balanced and holistic model of support based on both current evidence based care and ancient wisdom. We honor the privilege is it be present with families during each unique transition into parenthood + beyond.
