About The Collective
We pride ourselves in putting our heart and soul into all that we do, so we wanted to create a space that reflected the commitment we have for our community.
A place to celebrate and share joy. An intentional collective of like minded healers, helpers, curanderas, and community members. Guiding and learning from each other.
As our ancestors relied on the elements of nature to thrive and heal, we believed el sol was the perfect element to symbolize our intentions. Like el sol, we have faith the light will come after the darkness and embrace the nourishing warmth that encourages beautiful things to grow from the deepest of soils.
We meet people in whichever cycle in the circle of life they’re in. With an open heart, may we rise with the confidence of the sun, together.

People We Share Space With
Vegas Family Doulas
We are all about YOU! Vegas Family Doulas emerged based on the need for new family support in the Las Vegas Valley and the growing knowledge of how important support after birth is. The term “postpartum” is associated with depression for most, but VFD intends to educate our community on the “postpartum period” and how to use it to recover from birth and build parenting confidence.
As mothers themselves, our doulas are no strangers to the needs of a post-birth woman.
With over 9 years of professional experience, the Vegas Family Doulas team has built their focus completely on improving the postpartum side of birth and all of the contributing components. VFD brings Las Vegas families the exceptional and professional postpartum support they seek out, they yearn for, and didn’t know they wanted.
Our doulas are trained and certified by ProDoula, and practice the highest standards of care imaginable. The services provided by our doulas are diverse in order to meet each family’s unique wants and needs. Packages are tailored to suit your individual needs.
