Humans who care

Kimme Bruckner

Founder, Birth & Postpartum Doula, Childbirth Educator, Midwifery Assistant, Placenta Preparation Specialist, Intuitive healer, Sound Healing Practitioner. 

With Experience since 2009, Kimme has supported hundreds of families surrounding pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, feminine wellness, parenting, and non-violent communication strategies for couples. She has been assisting midwives at home births since 2012 and is soaking up the experience and skills necessary to be of service to all birthing women, and those interested in the ancient ways of midwifery and tribal child rearing. Kimme believes deeply in educating people to put the power back into their own hands as they navigate through relationships, all things pregnancy, childbirth, parenting, life transitions and trauma release.  Kimme found that most women approaching birth were holding fear based beliefs about their ability to carry out the birth process unhindered. She also observed deep trauma in both men and women that needed to be dealt with to create a birth space that would allow birth to unfold safely and cease or lessen the passing on of further trauma. This experience led Kimme to incorporate hypno sessions prenatally to activate the Theta brain waves to give men and women the chance to let go of limiting and fear based beliefs.  The results of this "front-loaded" prenatal care centered in trauma release and intuitive healing were incredibly prolific. Thus, a new door was opened for Kimme and since then her holistic care for others continues to expand as she evolves in the healing field. . 

Away from her work, Kimme is mother to her son born at home in 2008. Staying connected to family, nature, and community are her treasured values.  

Bevin Ellen

Bevin has been serving families in Los Angeles as a birth and postpartum doula since 2009, offering Lactation Counseling to breastfeeding mothers in need. With a dedication to continued education and a passion to act as guide and advocate prenatally, during birth and the fourth trimester, her goal has always been to give families the tools, support, respect and care that they need and deserve during this period of great transformation and transition.
