Proudly Serving Memphis, TN and Shelby County

MAMA CIRCLE is my twice monthly circle for moms. MAMA CIRCLE is more than a mom’s support group, it’s a community, a movement, and place to find your people as you navigate motherhood. #Momlife ain’t easy, and although we love the digital mom world, there’s no substitute for flesh and blood socializing.

The Mother Nurture Center is a new maternal wellness space created by a therapist (Alex Smith) and a doula (me!) to gather our services under one roof to better serve Memphis mothers. My private practice and MAMA CIRCLE are both newly housed within this beautiful space located in Midtown Memphis.

Memphis Doulas

Memphis Doulas is the doula-client matchmaking service that I run. If I am unavailable to take a client, or a client needs something I don’t offer, I send them to my registry doulas. It’s also I way for me to formally provide mentorship and business coaching to my fellow doulas.

Zoë Etkin

Hi, I’m Zoë Etkin and I have been in the birth and parenting world for 8 years. I came to this work with a passion for empowering people to take an active role in their health. That has led me to a doula practice built upon client-centered, customized support to fit each family’s unique needs. I love nothing more than supporting new families as they navigate the joys and challenges of early parenthood. I’m also a published poet, graphic designer, non-fiction writer, mother, and women’s health advocate. With the recent changes in my practice due to Corona Virus, I am now expanding my virtual offerings. I am available for private one-on-one coaching (pregnancy, birth planning, virtual birth doula, postpartum mama coaching, breastfeeding, fertility, sexuality, parenting), childbirth education, and prental prep classes (postpartum prep, breastfeeding, baby care). Please reach out if you would like to explore virtual options. Learn more about me here.
