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.

” 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. As this was my first baby, there were many unknowns and Lacey helped put my doubts at ease. A powerful part of our prenatal sessions was when we went over our fears. Even just getting them out there on paper or speaking them out loud was quite healing. Before working together I was more in the space of approaching pregnancy and birth with an “everything is going to be fine” attitude and wasn’t paying too much attention to what my fears actually were… almost ignoring them completely, but after digging deeper on what I’d been conditioned to believe about childbirth from a young age/ where these stories come from etc. and naming all of my deepest darkest fears it felt like a weight was lifted off my chest. It was a powerful exercise that left me feeling much more confident and empowered. It also made me feel less fearful in general of the “what ifs” because we discussed how we’d navigate each scenario that I was fearful of, and where there were unanswered questions, Lacey encouraged me to dig deeper with my provider until I had a level of clarity about our plan of action that felt comfortable… this really helped me feel prepared and in good hands with both Lacey and our Doctor. Working with Lacey also helped me become a stronger advocate for myself throughout my pregnancy, birth, and even as I navigate motherhood… she encouraged me to use my voice and stand firm on my wishes for my birth; and in those moments when I wasn’t in the best place mentally to advocate for myself (active labor hehe) she stepped right in to advocate for me which I am so grateful for. 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!” ~Kellly (February 2022, 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. (June 2020, 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. (July 2020, Postpartum Support)

“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 (January 2022, 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 (February 2022, Birth 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 (December 2020, postpartum support)

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 (June 2021, 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. (July 2020, Birth Doula Support)
