My name is Marisol Garcia, I am a Student Midwife at Midwives College of Utah, owner and foundress of Together in Birth, LLC. and La Fuente Birth, Postpartum y Más located in Long Beach, CA on occupied Tongva Land. Together in Birth LLC is a full-spectrum doula practice that encompasses care for families planning to become pregnant, throughout their postpartum and parenting journeys.
La Fuente Birth, Postpartum y Más, is a safe space for BIPOC families to come, gather, uplift, and support each other in our parenting and healing journeys. Here you can find body-feeding support groups, parent support groups, parenting workshops, and various classes focused on growth and personal healing to undo negative generational trauma and its continued effects it has on our daily lives and parenting.
I am a proud Latina, that brings Mexican traditions and healing modalities into my birth practice. Following the lead of my ancestors who came before me. My mother who continues to guide my path and sharing the knowldge that was passed down to her from my maternal grandfather and his mother (my great-grandmother), who was a partera (midwife) in Mexico. Along with the training that I have invested in to expand my knowledge and education to better support my community.
