Founder +Owner

elizabeth  bachner
I am originally from the East Coast where I went to Tufts University and received my undergraduate degree in Child Psychology. I went back to school to become a National and California Licensed Acupuncturist (L.Ac. & NAACOM Dipl. Ac.) and National Licensed Herbalist (NAACOM Dipl. Herbs). In May 2003, I received “The Calling” to be a midwife. While training to become a midwife, I also gained additional therapeutic skills to support trauma and anxieties as a graduate of Ray Castellino’s Pre and Perinatal Psychology Foundation Training. I am that person who educated herself and learned that a birth outside of a hospital is different than a birth inside a hospital. I am that person who knows that not only is birth a normal, physiological process in the body; but it can also be a powerful, transformative experience. I am excited to be offering another choice for family support to the Los Angeles community.

Our Midwives 

DANA MOORE

Certified Professional Midwife, BSM, LM, CLS

Midwifery is not just a job, but a calling, so much so that I am going back to school to become a midwife educator to make sure the next generation of midwives are taught the art of seeing and hearing the families that they serve. I have been practicing for over 18 years and am passionate about herbalism and holistic health. I relocated to California to serve a diverse population and assist families seeking high-quality, safe, and inclusive care. In my free time, I love reading, live music, and going to the beach.  I consider myself a data nerd and read research studies for fun. I’m also engaged to be married and have a rescue cat named Po.

CAROLINA FARIAS

Certified Nurse Midwife, WHNP-BC

After I graduated from California State University, Fullerton with a master’s in nursing I found my passion in both midwifery and women’s health. I pride myself on evidence-based practices and collaborative care, which supports my passion for navigating pregnancy with informed choices to eliminate fear. I value my 7 years of labor and delivery nursing experience and love the balance that out-of-hospital midwifery has brought to my career.
