We are a dynamic resource for families both prenatally and after birth!
Owner- Jamee Diver
Jamee Diver's focus on women and families health grew from the seed planted during her degree in psychology from UC in 2003, and blossomed after the births of her daughter in 2008 and her homebirthed son in 2011.
Attachment parenting and breastfeeding became two natural branches of this focus on gentle, respectful support and wellness, and Jamee became active in the greater Cincinnati community gaining a name for herself through grassroots work with La Leche League, classes on babywearing and cloth diapering through Cincinnati's premier natural general store Park + Vine, and as a generative force behind the local homebirth circle.
Jamee brings her fresh passions that focus on lactation as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant to the Cincinnati community through Roots Wellness in Mason. As a, Labor Doula, Postpartum Doula, Child Passenger Safety Technician and Hypnobirthing instructror, she continues to help families advocate for themselves and their children.
An Ohio native, Erica Manto-Paulson is a graduate from Bowling Green State University and holds a degree in Creative Writing and English Literature.

Erica taught hypnobirthing classes at Bethesda North and Christ hospitals for over six years and has certified as a HypnoDoula, CAPPA doula and childbirth educator. In 2013 she became a faculty member and doula trainer for CAPPA International before retiring from doula work in 2018.
