About Me


-Nerlande Welch

My Philosophy

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Jeremiah 29:11

Nerlande's belief is primarily to help navigate mothers and families to birth in Shalom. While Shalom (peace) may look different for every mother and family. Her approach will exercise the voices of the mother and family, empower and educate key information that will give knowledge and understanding in areas of the most beautiful journey a women and family can experience, that is BIRTHING.

My Story

I am a wife and mother of two. I've had the opportunity to give birth to my two children in a traditional hospital setting. While both experiences were different, having a doula made a difference! 

Birthing my two children ignited the desire to get into birth-work. My Breastfeeding journey was very difficult but rewarding. Determination, education and empowerment made this journey doable! I strongly believed having a community of mothers help encouraged me and allowed me to give back to mamas. This is what I, Nerlande's want to be for you and your family. This journey was never to be gone through alone!

I am passionate about empowering, educating and supporting women to be their optimal self and wholeness. I have over 4 years experience in counseling moms and families with breastfeeding and lactation needs. 

I believe in holistic techniques that aides in recovery and wholeness.

With a social worker backgrounds for the last eight years. I know that i would be able to apply those same skills to provide resources and education needed to the families I serve.


Aside from mommy-ing, I enjoy crafting, reading, traveling and cooking.
