My name is Sara Eckert and I am a trained birth and postpartum doula through SLO Birth and Doula collective.
Having experienced two very different births myself, it is now my desire to help families navigate their own way.
As your birth doula, I can fill in the gaps of childbirth education, help you create birth goals, process previous birth trauma or fears and advocate for your ideal birth in whichever setting you choose.
It is my wish to empower every family through advocacy, education and teamwork.

Hi, I am a trained birth and postpartum doula serving the Central Coast. I’m passionate about assisting women in birthing the way they choose, whether it be hospital, birth center, or home birth. I love sharing the joy of an empowered birth, tailored to suit the needs and desires of each individual birther. Experiencing the joy of two beautiful home births myself, inspired in me the desire to share the joys of positive birthing experiences with others. I believe every birther has a right to feel confident and powerful during birth. I believe birthers should be encouraged to follow their maternal instincts, be provided the opportunity for informed consent, have their choices respected, their body honored, and their partner included as desired.
My name is Shelle Ball. I am a trained Doula working on my certification as well as
a 500 RYT certified Hatha yoga and Shadow yoga Teacher. I was born and raised in San Luis Obispo and from a young age I was fascinated with the birthing process and the sacredness of it. After having 3 children of my own I realized there was much more than just the birth of the baby. This made me passionate about supporting and guiding parents on their path to becoming parents and Beyond. Some additional services I offer are Private/or semi private Prenatal, Postnatal ,and Parent/Baby yoga. I look forward to meeting you!
Hi! I’m Alisha and I’m a trained doula serving the beautiful Central Coast of California. I believe that each and every birth is a unique experience and I’m deeply grateful to be serving families in our community. I work with women wanting to have all different kinds of birth experiences- homebirths, at birth centers or at the hospital. Fertility, pregnancy and postpartum are sacred transitions with many paths to follow. My highest goal is to provide evidence based research, community resources and a safe environment in order for you to feel rooted during these transitions.
Hello! I am a trained doula and a certified pregnancy massage practitioner!
My passion for birth stemmed from a negative experience with a birth provider when I was pregnant with my son. After that, I dove head first into finding all of my options and found a wonderful midwife. She inspired me so much I changed my career goals to follow my new found love of caring for babies and mamas! While I intend to one day become a midwife, I am honored to serve as a doula on the central coast to gain priceless experience.
My joy is helping families navigate pregnancy, birth, and postpartum! I adore watching women usher new life into the world and marvel at their strength to do so. I believe all birth is beautiful and I would be thrilled to come alongside and support you, whether you want a home birth with a trained midwife, a planned & informed c-section or anything in between!
Hello! My name is Hannah Sada, I am a trained birth doula working towards my certification through the SLO Birth Collective. My goal as a birth worker is to support families as they experience a safe birth that includes well-informed and respectful decision making. I believe that birthing people hold the authority on their body and their choices, and hope that by guiding you to tools and resources to support your own intuition, birth can be a transformative, empowering experience for your whole family.
My name is Autumn Dalton, I am trained through the SLO Birth Collective, and am currently working on completing my certification. One of my very favorite things is connecting with moms, especially over the intense, yet remarkable time of welcoming a baby. After experiencing three births of my own without a doula, I understand first hand that friendly and knowledgeable emotional and physical support is often needed but lacking. I am passionate about journeying with women through their pregnancy, birth and postpartum, so that they can approach motherhood with confidence and gratitude.

My name is Molly Held and I am a trained birth doula working on completing my certification through SLO Birth Collective. I have always been amazed by childbirth and the newborn period and that passion grew as I welcomed my son into the world. I am committed to supporting women through pregnancy, birth, & postpartum. I strongly believe that women deserve to birth on their own terms and as your doula, I will assist you in whatever shape that takes, be it at the hospital, your home, or a birthing facility. I will also provide you with up to date and evidence based information to guide you in your decision-making. I look forward to supporting you and your family!
Hi! My name is Sher! I’m a trained birth doula working towards my certification through SLO Birth Collective. After the birth of my first son, I fell in love with the whole experience! Although I loved everything about my first birthing experience, I felt like there was so much information I wasn’t given. During the pregnancy of my second son, I felt I learned more from the internet than I did my health providers. My own personal experiences have given me a passion and desire to help other new parents and seasoned parents gather all the information they need to have the birth they want! I look forward to assisting mother to the best of my ability to have a beautiful informed birth what ever that may look like!
Hello! I’m Mo Martin and I am passionate about empowering, educating, and encouraging women during one of the most vulnerable times of life; pregnancy, labor, and postpartum. Having completed my training through SLO Birth Collective, I am thrilled to offer my services to the beautiful women of SLO County. I am a mom to 3 kids, whom I birthed under the care of midwives in a room thick with the love and support of powerful women. My hope is that I can help you feel supported, informed, cared for, and empowered during your own experience, regardless of your birth choices. In addition to doula work, I also homeschool my kids, lead worship, hike, garden, make sourdough bread, and read a lot.
