What do we live for, if not to make life less difficult for each other.

Meet the Founders

In creating a collective of like-minded doulas, our vision is to provide personalized support and guidance to expectant and new mothers. Our varied and extensive backgrounds, along with a well-built network of support services and birth professionals, all join together to nurture our community of women - allowing them to take time to enjoy their pregnancy, support each other during motherhood, and celebrate together in the years to follow.

Casey Sodano, RYT200

Certified Doula & Yoga Teacher

I completed my 200-hour Yoga Teacher certification at Joyful Yoga & Spa in April 2010. Throughout the years I have received additional training and certificates in Prenatal Yoga, Postnatal Yoga, and Kids Yoga.

During my Labor & Birth Doula certification, I was offered a unique opportunity to work alongside some of the best Doulas in the area. The hands on training gave me a deeper understanding of the individual approach and techniques that are necessary to support women and their families before, during, and after childbirth.

Certified Doula & Birth Assistant

I have many roles but most importantly I am the mother of two gorgeous girls.

I received my Doula certification through DONA International and Childbirth Educator certificate through BE PARENTS. After years of supporting moms as a Doula I then trained and completed my Birth Assistant training at The Family Birth Center of Naples.

Most recently, I completed my doctorate in natural medicine through the New Eden School of Natural Health & Herbal Studies and have opened a private practice right here in SWFL.
