Being born and raised in sun-blessed Oceanside, California made it effortless to feel motivated to get outside and stay active. My passion for fitness was naturally instilled, which led me to become a personal trainer at the start of my career. This opened my eyes to a world of nutrition I never knew existed. The deep dives into nutritional research, as well as a personal battle with Lyme Disease, emphasized just how toxic much of what is offered to the mass markets can be.
Getting pregnant with my son was the icing on the cake. I wanted to take serious action and share what I have learned with women and mothers everywhere. My journey of gathering knowledge regarding nutrition, motherhood, and overall wellness eventually led me to my calling as a doula and wellness coach.
I currently offer holistic postpartum, nutritional, and wellness support, as well as Lyme Disease specific healing tips. I have healed myself with bee venom therapy and other holistic detox modalities.

My name is Holly Kohlmann (she/her), I am a wife, mother, and passionate educator. I am also queer and love fairy tales (I’m sure you can guess where the Mama Goose came from). I found a passion for babywearing when I had my daughter and connected with my local babywearing group. It grew into something more when I saw the lack of car seat education available and realized I could better serve my community by offering these services to parents and caregivers locally. In 2019 I became a postpartum doula and began supporting local families in a more in depth capacity. I recently added Birth Doula to my repertoire and am excited to be able to support families at birth and beyond. I believe finding the perfect shouldn’t be a fairy tale and all birthing people should be supported.
My trainings include:
• Postpartum Doula with Cornerstone Doula Trainings
• Trained Babywearing Educator with Center For Babywearing Studies
• Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician (Car Seat Tech) through Safe Kids Worldwide™
When I’m not providing postpartum support and education to families I can be found camping with my little goose and exploring southern California with my spouse.

Birth Doula / Birth Photographer
Zo’e began birthwork as a birth photographer and videographer and naturally continued the journey deeper into birthwork as a doula. She is a mama to two and having had both a hospital experience and a homebirth experience, Zo’e has great compassion for walking with mamas on their motherhood journeys through all the peaks and valleys. Zo’e approaches all of her work passionately and prayerfully believing that God can saturate any birthspace. Zo’e is incredibly empathetic and intuitive and believes that given the right education, intuitive support, empowerment, every mom can have the birth and postpartum that they desire and deserve. In addition to nerding out on birth, she loves ancestral nutrition, mediocre longboarding, and baking sourdough bread that may or may not rise. If she’s not photographing mamas on the beach, she’s probably splashing around with her little ones.
