About the Collective We are a group of independent business owners in the greater New Orleans area who have chosen to come together and work in a collective. We offer quality care and education for birthing women and a place for birth workers to build support and community. Our mission is to provide families the support, education and resources they need to become empowered. There are currently six unique and talented birth workers who comprise Beginnings Birth & Doula Services. Please use the dropdown menu above to get to know us!
