Sahaja सहज (sanskrit) :

natural, original, innate, pure, spontaneous enlightenment

Saha = born ::: ja = with or together 
reminding us that we are not separate from our true nature.

Pregnancy, birth & postpartum is our origin. It is natural, innate, and pure,
and, so is this Being we are welcoming into the world – full of pure awareness, radiating presence and unconditional love.

Through this sacred service, I am here to support you and your family as you reclaim the naturalness and sacredness of your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum journey, the way you envision it, and as guided by you.

Doula: (doulos, pre greek origin):
women’s servant

Yes, that’s right. I am here in the highest humble service to you, your family and your shared journey. I walk with women and families as a companion, a sister, a friend, during this transformative and sacred rites of passage. I am here to mother the mother.

a sacred & holistic approach to pregnancy, birth & postpartum

As a holistic birth and postpartum doula, I lovingly offer couples, mothers and families, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual support during this life changing experience and time of great transition. I am passionate about serving families in a natural and holistic way.  I honor you, your birth partner and family in its wholeness and carry a deep understanding and respect for the intimate interconnectedness of body, mind, heart, and spirit.  I am here to hold a sacred container of presence, respect and support as you reawaken to the innate, instinctual, intuitive wisdom and strength that you carry within.

All packages come with access to the Sahaja doula library (print + ebooks) , an online resource portal and a community resource list.

Testimonials from the Community!

” Working with Lacey was such a gift. My husband and I had the pleasure of receiving her support from early on in my pregnancy all the way through 6 weeks postpartum. We gained so much from our prenatal visits with her, it really helped us prepare for our birth on a mental, physical, and spiritual level. I would even text Lacey after our sessions sometimes saying how I was just buzzing with good energy and feeling so great after our time together. Throughout my whole pregnancy and even while in labor, I had an overwhelming sense of calm and trust and I do believe Lacey played an important role in cultivating that with all the tools, support, and information she was continuously providing to help us prepare and go into our birth experience and postpartum with more confidence.

Postpartum care with Lacey was also such a blessing. Coming into motherhood is such a huge transition, so having the support for those first weeks postpartum was invaluable and allowed me to really take the time I needed to rest, heal, and bond with my baby. I highly recommend taking advantage of her postpartum package – you won’t regret it. Lacey has so many talents you don’t want to miss out on. Her knowledge of postpartum health & nutrition, the delicious and nourishing meals she creates, the yoni steams, oil massages, flower baths, and her unique ability to hold sacred space for a new mother, whether it be a quick voice audio checking in, a hug, or just being there to simply listen. We shared some beautiful moments together postpartum that truly made me feel so validated and honored and for that I think I’m the most grateful.

You can tell Lacey really loves her work and puts so much love and thought into every moment she spends with her clients. I feel truly blessed to have had the opportunity to receive her Doula support and can’t recommend her services enough. Thank you Lacey!” ~Kelly V. (Complete Birth & Postpartum support)

“Our decision to invite Lacey into our home was a blessing. She entered  our home with respect, awareness, a sense of steadiness and a servant’s heart. She holds the kind of nurturing intuition that is necessary in this field and applies that intuition accordingly.  I felt safe and supported. I am thankful for her presence at my birth. She developed relationships with my children and husband and was a joy to have throughout postpartum. When Lacey left, we would have a meal ready to eat, new bedding, and lighter hearts. I’m happy to recommend her in the future. ” ~ Jamie S. (Birth & Postpartum Support)

“Receiving Lacey’s support during our transition into parenthood was truly valuable and special. She was consistently very loving, caring, and easily approachable. From the onset, she made me feel very comfortable and made herself available to my partner at all times. Throughout our sessions together she showed great devotion and commitment to this path. Her skill set is very varied and came in super handy during the chaos that arises in the early postpartum. Not only did she cook hearty loving foods, but also would prepare healthy snacks, support us with some laundry and organizing around the house, as well as allowed me the space to voice and process my emotions, feelings and challenges as they aroused each week she visited. We are deeply grateful for how she served us and will recommend her services without question, for every family and every mother needs the kind of loving and nourishing support Lacey offers.” Maite O. (Postpartum Support)

“It was the best Self Care I have ever received! I felt so celebrated, loved, seen and nourished. Just like when we acknowledge special events in our lives like birthdays. It felt even more important for me to open up and receive this love gift from Lacey. I really felt the energy shift in this ceremony. It felt like I had come out of the initial postpartum rest and I was ready for the next phase of motherhood. I felt this shift physically after being tightly wrapped in deep meditation and I felt it emotionally after releasing what was on my mind. . What makes this ceremony so special is Laceys passion for honoring the mother and her attention to detail and beauty. Her intention is conveyed in how beautifully she holds these ceremonies. I have now taken what I loved most about it and what I have learned from Lacey into my daily life to continue to fill my life with more beauty.” (~Emma M., Closing of the bones ceremony)

“Lacey has been the most generous, loving, present and conscious doula I could have ever wished for. From the preparation throughout the six weeks postpartum we had with her, I’ve been feeling so well informed, nourished and supported during my postpartum time. Lacey listens in a way that allowed me to fully open! Her food has helped me heal fast! I absolutely loved every second spent together and would highly recommend her bright presence to any family entering this magical journey. Thank you Lacey!” Marion (postpartum support)

We are beyond grateful to have found Lacey upon our arrival in Costa Rica. She has helped us feel confident and safe throughout my pregnancy and birth, And when things were more difficult I felt completely comfortable opening up to her. Lacey comes with wonderful skills which allow her to use different holistic practices and ceremonies during pregnancy, birth and postpartum. Her passion for birth and pregnancy, her knowledge and calming presence is what inspired me to pursue my doula training as well. Having Lacey by my side throughout my pregnancy and during postpartum has been a blessing and her kind, loving and non judgmental support is why I would highly recommend her to any mother and family.”  – Noemie P. (Birth Support)

“Seeking out Lacey to be a part of our support team was the best decision we could have made. She made us feel so comfortable with her warm and caring energy every single time we saw her. I was always looking forward to our next session because they were always so creative and fun. I didn’t even know what I would really need or want during the birth but Lacey was so good at being respectful of the space, supporting my husband and offering me what I needed without me having to ask. Just seeing her face through labor made me relax knowing she was right there, especially after the bond we made in the prenatal sessions. I felt like we had been friends for years. We had special moments of her just holding my hands, putting a face wash on my head, feeding me coconut water , massaging my back to give my husband a break and more. She even got some incredible video and photos of us when she had a chance so my husband didn’t have to worry about it. After the birth she helped clean and get us comfortable, got us dinner, everything. We could both totally relax and be present. In postpartum she made the most delicious, healthy food and snacks. she would come in with a herbal tea, bliss balls, some beautiful flowers she picked from her garden and come sit on the bed to be with me, fix up my pillows so I could be more comfortable, offer a womb steam and help with any concerns I had like breastfeeding positions and all of my early new born worries of ” is this normal.” I felt so pampered and loved. We live away from our family so Lacey was so vital in our journey for the connection and support. Even if we were back in our home country I would want her support again because I believe it really gave our family the best possible start. One of the biggest blessings is that she connected us with other clients of hers through pregnancy by holding holistic birth workshops. We were able to make connections with other families who are now good friends with our babies growing up together. I still go to every postpartum mothers gathering and it’s a very special place for me to connect with other mothers. Her presence was everything and just knowing her has impacted our journey in the most positive way. I will always look back on this time and be so thankful to her.” (~Emma M., Birth + Postpartum Doula Support)

“Although we had only met Lacey a few times before my birth (once online and twice in person) we immediately felt so at ease and comfortable with her. The moment she walked into our home while I was in labour she brought forth such a grounding and calming energy which was exactly what I needed at that time. Without ever having to tell her Lacey intuitively always knew what I needed, whether it be words of encouragement, a gentle rub, or space. She was also an amazing liaison between myself and the OBGYN. In the hours, days, weeks and months following my daughters birth I felt supported by Lacey through her check ins and genuine care for my familys wellbeing. Investing in Lacey as our doula was the best decision we made for this huge life event.” (Carly D., Birth Doula Support)

“Lacey was a lifesaver. She is very calm and steady, reliable, and easy to talk to. I felt I was able to relax, that someone who knew what they were doing was present. Lacey is obviously following a natural calling and is able to combine a flexible, go with the flow attitude with a professional side that is clearly structured, which is appreciated.” ~ Sri Devi (postpartum support)

“The closing of the bones ceremony was so incredibly nourishing and rejuvenating. I initially had some hesitations and still felt deep in the birth-postpartum-motherhood essence and didn’t want to close that. I realize now that it’s not a closing, but a spiraling, an honoring, and a reverence of the journey that I, and we, as mamas walk. I want to highly recommend it, it’s really special. It made our space feel so much more beautiful, and so much more like home. The ceremony reconnected me to my birth. There are so many elements to the ceremony like space holding, nourishment, a lot of beauty – I Loved it!” (~Forest, Closing of the bones ceremony).

“Lacey came into my life and I honor our friendship, and now that we share an experience as sacred as the arrival of Felipe, she will always be in our hearts. Your support since pregnancy filled me with calm, the calm that I needed in times of great fear and uncertainty. Then he came to our house and shared with us all his wisdom and love. He nourished us with food made with intention, I think with Felipe with a bond that we will always remember. THANK YOU SISTER We love you!” – Patricia (Virtual Birth Support + In person postpartum care)

“Lacey was an excellent addition to our birth team. Not only was she knowledgable, caring, and attentive, but I was comfortable enough with her to be honest about my feelings. Immediately after our daughter was born there was a situation that required presence, attention, and action, and Lacey was quick to take it. She made sure that my needs were met throughout the process and made sure that my opinion and feelings were considered. We are very happy with her work.” ~Makenzie G. ( Birth Doula Support)
