Today we’d like to introduce you to Marisol Garcia.

Marisol is a mother of 2 boys… She’s a birth and postpartum doula and the owner of Together In Birth, a company focused on educating and empowering women and couples to achieve the birth they desire.

As a young mother, with her oldest son and not knowing exactly how to maneuver through her pregnancy and the choices that were available to women was a difficult journey for her. It wasn’t until the birth of her youngest son that she made it her mission to provide support to couples.

Marisol received her doula training from Birth Goddess Midwifery, she is an affiliated Bradley Method® instructor, has attended traditional Mexican rebozo workshops for use in labor & postpartum and most recently completed an intense 9-month traditional postpartum course focused on traditional Mexican herbs and remedies for the postpartum mother with Indigemama Ancestral Healing.
