A B O U T M E
HOLÁ! My name is Marisol Garcia, owner and foundress of Together in Birth, LLC (a full spectrum doula practice) and La Fuente Birth, Postpartum y Más located in Long Beach, CA (Tongva Land). La Fuente is a safe space for BIPOC families to come and gather, uplift and support each other in our parenting/healing journeys. Here you can find body feeding & parent support groups, parenting workshops and a variety of classes focused on growth and personal healing.
I am a proud Latina, that brings in my Mexican traditions and healing modalities into my birth practice. I follow the lead of my ancestors that came before me, my maternal grandfather and his mother (my great grandmother), who was a partera (midwife) in Mexico. Along with the trainings that I have invested in to expand my knowledge for myself and my community.
I received my doula training from Birth Goddess Midwifery, am a certified Bradley Method®️ instructor, Certified Lactation Education Specialist with Breastfeed L.A, and have completed traditional Mexican rebozo workshops for use in pregnancy, labor, postpartum and beyond.
In 2016, I completed an intense 9 month traditional postpartum course focused on Mexican
herbs & cerradas (closing of the bones/hips) for the postpartum birthing parent with
Indigemama Ancestral Healing.
I always strive to continue my own birth education by attending workshops and trainings, which allow me to stay up to date on the most recent evidence based birth studies, protocols & procedures.
You will feel safe and supported in my care. I will meet you where you are in your pregnancy journey. And we can navigate this TOGETHER!! As a mother of 2 beautiful sons, I know first hand how important, scary and completely amazing this time can be. I cant wait to hear from you!
