BIRTH SERVICES

Birthing Centers

Mariposa Birth and Wellness Center became the first free standing birth center in the larger Nevada County area recently. Conveniently located between Nevada City and Grass Valley, the birth center is entirely run and operated by certified and licensed midwives. Its opening provides a new option for families looking for a safe, supported and natural birth outside of the hospital, yet close to all amenities and emergency services. The director of the clinic, Allison Blackam along with Leah Paperno, Dania Shelton and Cindy Foxfoot, make up the cohesive, skilled and caring team of midwives, passionate about offering this important resource to families seeking natural birth services and holistic reproductive care.
 
The birth center provides individualized options to fit each family's unique needs and desires. Mariposa's Comprehensive Birth and Care Package includes extensive, attentive and personal midwifery care along with a professional lactation consultation, luxurious professional massages and healthy, locally sourced food. Special packages of prenatal and postpartum care for planned hospital birthing families, labor monitoring, hospital advocate services, well woman care and free initial consultations are also available!
 
Through all these options and more, Mariposa Birth and Wellness is committed to making the enormous benefits of midwifery care accessible to all. For those seeking an empowering and supported pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum experience, Mariposa offers a centrally located, homey environment with a committed team of highly skilled, compassionate and experienced midwives.
 
Even if you don't yet know what you are looking for, Mariposa welcomes anyone to schedule a free consultation to learn more about the variety of birth options available in the area as well as provide educated and caring guidance in finding the best possible plan for each mother, each family and each birth.

Doulas

A birth doula assists a laboring woman and her family by attending birth as a continuous presence who encourages a positive birth experience. A postpartum doula offers support beginning day one of your baby's life through the first 8 weeks and sometimes longer. 

The Nest hosts a free, doula peer group meeting quarterly.  It is open to all local birth and postpartum doulas as a place to share, process, and mentor. Please call the Nest to confirm the monthly meeting if it's your first time. All doulas are welcome!
