Committed to improving birth and postpartum outcomes by providing continuity of care.
In 1988, Lisa’s vision of the group began with providing pro bono support to BIPOC teenagers, and in 2003, she founded Balanced Beginnings Doulas. As one of the first and most respected doula groups in the Boulder area, we have collectively served 1000s of families.

“Balanced Beginnings Doulas provide amazing care to the women in our community. Families who work with this group will be ensured incredible support and advocacy throughout their pregnancy, birth and postpartum period. As a midwife in the community, I feel lucky when my patients choose Balanced Beginnings Doulas because I know how much love and support they will receive. Their commitment to continuity in care and collaborating with a patient’s team creates an ideal experience for families”

“To all the mamas out there looking for a redemptive, healing birth, look no further than Lisa and her team. She and her tribe helped me find my way to catharsis and healing after a traumatic first birth experience with a different team, and I’m forever grateful for the truly invaluable gift she was able to give me. Lisa and Balanced Beginnings Doulas are absolutely earth-shatteringly great and if you dream of a healing, meaningful birth filled with presence and purpose, hire her immediately.”
