We believe in the language of touch and skin-to-skin, and that from our first breath we are shaped by the nests we are nurtured in.

Our Philosophy

Nesting Days is an ART project, a business, a product, an idea, a hope, a dream, a way of making the world, a little gentler, kinder, more loving,  more understanding, less impatient, more appreciative, more nurturing, and more mindful of how we care for our babies.

It will take all your heart,

all your breath,

it will be short,

it will not be simple.


When I was creating Nesting Days a mother and father bluebird were busy building their nest in my lemon tree nearby, and I snapped these pictures.  If you look closely you can see the threads from my labors incorporated into theirs. The enterprise and skill with which animals make their nests is not only functional but also beautiful.  Inspired by the natural world around me, and my work as a postpartum doula, my goal was to create a human nest for the 4th trimester that was both functional and beautiful too.

A Note From The Founder

Nesting Days’ philosophy comes out of lifetime of experiences as a female, a wife, a sister, a daughter, a postpartum doula, a maker of things, a would-be-artist, a seamstress, a writer, a poet, a nurturer, a teacher, a friend, a neighbor and of course, a mother.
