  • Pregnancy
    • Free initial consultation
    • I am available for phone, text, and email support for the entirety of our time together
    • I will provide you with excellent resources, a foundational understanding of the birthing process and the flow of labor
    • I offer monthly prenatal visits to deepen my connection with clients and to make sure they feel cared for. During these meetings we can discuss your hopes for your birthing experience and create a solid, clear birth plan for you. We can also practice comfort measures that you may wish to use in labor. These visits are all about YOU. I am there for you for whatever you need, whether that is watching birth videos together, going grocery shopping or supporting you in learning.
    • I am available to answer any questions you have and am happy to research anything for you I don’t already know.
    • I will be on call from 38 weeks 


    • I am available for text, facetime, and phone support during early labor.
    • I offer physical, emotional and practical support during active labor at your home and or wherever you give birth.
    • I offer care during the first 1-2 hours after birth.
    • When I’m not needed to be fully physically and emotionally present, I’m happy to offer free photography during labor and birth.


    • I offer 1-3 at home postpartum visits, where we can reflect on your birth experience and your relationship with your baby. I offer breastfeeding support, and provide any referrals you want. 

I believe childbirth is a transformative event and that everyone deserves an empowering and supported birth experience. I believe women want to be witnessed, loved, held and supported rather than managed. 

I am here to nurture you during your sacred journey from pregnancy to postpartum. I will create the space for you to feel safe, respected, heard and honored.

Hi, My name is Maggie Zahara and I am a birth doula! As a life-long Valley resident, I care deeply about the health and wellbeing of our community. My life's work has been to better the lives of others by making them feel seen, heard, supported, welcome and integrated into the larger community. I am currently pursuing a degree as a Certified Professional Midwife. I completed a DONA birth doula training in 2018 and I am a graduate of The Birth Warrior project, a 120 day Doula training.
