ABOUT


Hi there!

So glad you're here.
My name is Estera but I go by Esther.
I've been in birth work since 2012.
Formerly a birth doula and placenta encapsulation specialist, I've transitioned to teaching childbirth education.
I'm an ICEA certified childbirth educator and am currently training with Birthing from Within and pursuing certification to become a lactation counselor.
I live, eat and breathe everything that is pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum.
Saying it's my passion is an understatement!
All of this really came full circle for me when my husband and I welcomed our first baby in the Spring of 2019.
Currently I'm teaching for Multicare's South Sound locations while also offering private courses!
I'm so grateful to be doing what I love...
Supporting, guiding and helping to empower birthing people and their families.
