Birth doula and Postpartum Doula Support

Labor of Love Birth & Postpartum 

Was created because welcoming your baby into the world is  transformative on so many levels; physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. This moment will impact your life forever. We want to ensure that families meet this day with intention, connectedness and self-awareness to make it the best moment ever!  

Labor of Love Birth & Postpartum

Our Mission

Labor of Love grew out of the desire to change our current birth culture and narrative. Too many expecting women find themselves overwhelmed, experiencing guilt or shame, plagued with self-doubt and judgement, and anxious with fear. Too many mothers have negative associations with our birth and postpartum experiences. Too many feel alone and isolated without the village and support needed to take care of oneself as a new mom. Such issues lead to over-all dissatisfaction, anxiety, depression and questioning ourselves as mothers. 

 

Our goal is to help women embrace this moment and so this transition for what it is, an opportunity for growth as welcoming our babies into the world is transformative on ALL levels. We won't say that this is easy as transformation can be challenging but is doesn't have to be negative.

Our goal is to help our clients meet this moment with confidence, safety and resilience. We know that this happens when women feel seen, heard, validated and offered genuine emotional and physical support during this time.  Our services fill the gap between medical care and individual/personal care. Our clients are never alone in decisions, options or experience. We are by your side at a very challenging time offering expert guidance. We bring comprehensive support without judgement or agenda.

About Our Founder 

Staci Berrey 

Staci opened Labor of Love Birth & Postpartum in 2013 to support Orange County birthing families. Her goal was to help women have a better birth experience. She quickly realized that support & education were paramount in making great birth memories regardless of HOW a woman births. 

She has dedicated her life to changing Orange County's cultural & birth narrative so that families can have a transformative experience. This comes from a deep understanding that we carry these memories with us our entire lives and women will remember how they were made to feel in birth forever; therefore, it's essential that we feel loved, respected and heard during our births. 

No matter how you do it - BIRTH IS BRAVE!

Staci is a Long Beach native born and raised in Southern California. She earned her BA in Art History from UCI and went on to earn her MA in Religious Studies at CSULB. She was pulled to birth work after having her first child in 2009. Staci worked as a solo birth doula for many years, and, understanding the importance of making doula work sustainable for herself and her family, Labor of Love embraced an agency model bringing on a full team of like minded professionals. She now is the sole operator of Labor of Love Birth & Postpartum and has retired as a professional birth.
