Welcome to our Nest!

Well Nested was founded by Karla Costner, birth doula and Hypnobabies childbirth instructor and Lyndsi Dreckman, birth, bereavement and postpartum doula, newborn care specialist, and Love and Logic parenting instructor. Karla, Lyndsi and the Well Nested team believe that every mother deserves the birth she desires.

It is our mission to provide our families the best evidence based care in a compassionate, empowering, supportive was. We desire to create a comfortable space for parents to explore their options, experience evidence based classes, and receive encouraging support throughout pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and parenting.

Services provided by the Well Nested team include birth and postpartum doula, placenta encapsulation, lactation support, Hypnobabies childbirth education, Bradley Method childbirth education, and 4th Trimester and Newborn care education classes. We believe cost should never interfere with our clients ability to achieve their birth and parenting dreams and are happy to offer payment plans and gift certificates.

 
Whenever and wherever you intend to give birth your experience will impact your emotions, your mind, your body, and your spirit for the rest of your life.
— Ina May Gaskin
