As postpartum doulas, we strive to give you the tools and support necessary to have a healthy, safe, joyful, and empowered postpartum period.

Like the golden hour, the postpartum time for any new parent is illuminating, yet fleeting.

We are here to take care of you, so that you can enjoy each stunning moment.

We believe that new parents are happier and healthier when they are nurtured and assisted through this new transition.

 Who We Are


Lindsey Weaving

Lindsey is a recent transplant to the Hudson Valley, who started her path working with babies and parents as a nanny in Brooklyn for many years. When she moved to the Hudson Valley, she wanted to dive into learning about the postpartum period, as she sees it as a portal from the divine unknown into our present reality. She believes new parents need to be nurtured and held almost as much as their new babies. Lindsey has a background in dance, and loves to hold space for body awareness meditation and authentic movement practices for new parents to get to know and love their new bodies. She is also a devotee to lunar cycles, and has been leading a full moon womyns group for the last 3 years. She wishes to empower new parents to find their inner strength and willingness to surrender to natural cycles through lunar meditation and ritual.

Lindsey is a budding Herbalist, currently participating in a 10 month herbal intensive under Karine Goordineer, beloved herbalist of the Hudson Valley. She hopes to incorporate her new knowledge of herbs into her postpartum care. She holds a B.A. from The New School, and a Postpartum Doula Certification from Wyld Womyn in Beacon, NY.


Maggie Berke

Originally from Long Island, Maggie fell in love with the Hudson Valley while attending Bard College, and relocated to Beacon in 2018. She found her way to postpartum care through an initial passion for feminist medical history, and her role as the coordinator of Bard College’s peer health and sexual wellness initiative. After completing a research thesis exploring the role of midwifery in the scientific revolution, Maggie decided to become a practitioner, wanting to revive the communal support and historical honor of the postpartum period for modern families. Maggie has a background in LGBTQ+ advocacy and community education, where she was lucky enough to support and work with LGBTQ+ children and families. It was through this work that she developed the social justice framework that is at the heart of her postpartum philosophy. In addition to being a postpartum caregiver, Maggie also leads a group for LGBTQ+ youth and allies in Beacon, and runs a dog daycare, where she cares for the four legged members of our families. She holds a B.A. in Environmental and Urban Studies and Gender and Sexuality Studies, and a Postpartum Doula Certification from Wyld Womyn in Beacon, N.Y.

Maggie and Lindsey share a love of veganism and strong respect for animals and the planet.  We know that every family and every body is unique and has different needs. We would be honored to help expand your diet, and incorporate more environmentally sound practices into your postpartum period, if you are interested. Our shared world view provides the ethical backbone to our practice and informs the highly empathetic approach we bring to all in the postpartum period.

We offer meal planning at an added fee for those interested.
