We are a community of passionate, progressive and trauma informed professionals who believe every person should have a fully-supported and empowering birthing experience and perinatal period no matter your culture or traditions. The Birth Comadres help create a loving nurturing environment for parents and families by providing the appropriate support and guidance during pregnancy, birth and the first stages of parenthood. We welcome and celebrate all people who identify as LGBTQIA+. Reach out today to learn more about our customized services.
We follow the guidance of our ancestors who were
taught that a person goes through many ceremonial stages throughout their lifetime,
each unique in its own right.
At conception, the womb carrier starts the bearer of life ceremony. Each individual has their own rituals that are made up of your life experiences. Which do have common components like nutrition, the way you care for your changing body, birth processes and creating community.
We as your comadres, can guide you through this life changing ceremonial stages of your life.
A community of families, because it really does take a village or Kalpulli...

The Birth Comadres has been honored with abundance to received partial funding from the Start the Wave initiative! With this funding Birth Comadres will be able to offer body care after birth/loss of pregnancy for undocumented folks in the Austin, TX area. This includes preparing postpartum care packages, body care sessions and holding space for birth processing with awareness and sensitivity to their culture and traditions. We believe culture and tradition are an important part of the birthing process and healing.
Birth outcomes and how birthing people are treated has a direct effect on how we interact with our community. When supported during the perinatal period, which can be a major transformation period, one can feel a sense of self worth and connection. These are some of the building blocks for creating a positively thriving community.
