La Bella Birth and Baby

Chelsea Tate

The Piedmont Triad, Charlotte, and surrounding areas of North Carolina


Chelsea has always had a fervent desire to serve her community. After her experience birthing her son left her feeling unsupported, violated, and taken advantage of, she decided to research options that were available to expecting women and families. When she learned what a doula was, she immediately knew that was her calling.

In 2016, Chelsea became pregnant with her second child. Being a doula herself and striving for a VBAC, she knew she had options and used her voice. Although things did not go as planned, she felt empowered by her experience. This, along with her experience as an independent doula, inspired her to launch her agency.

La Bella Birth and Baby offers a variety of services including Birth/Postpartum Doula Support, Belly Binding, Placenta Encapsulation, Classes, Henna Art, Belly Painting, Belly Casting and Placenta Art.

Most amazing doulas and services!

I could literally write an entire BOOK on how amazing my experience was with La Bella Birth and Baby. From the child birth classes, to the prenatal meetings, to the unconditional talk/text support 24/7, to birth support, and postpartum support: they never once failed to exceed my expectations, wants, or needs. Chelsea and Susanna went above and beyond for me when I was pregnant and when I had a very unsupportive, discriminatory, and pushy OB provider. Listened to me vent, cry, and educated me when my partner and I needed it the most. They took me on as a client later into my pregnancy knowing my due date was 2 days away from there very huge expo without hesitation. Susanna also worked so hard to be there for my partner and I despite being in college full time and having so much to juggle. If it weren’t for La Bella Birth and Baby I can whole heartedly say that without them being involved in my life: without there constant support, empowerment, and education I would not have had the birth of my dreams. I would have continued being the niave first time mom I was who allowed my OB provider to push me into unnecessary interventions. I can also almost guarentee without them helping me to be educated and empowered I would of stayed on path to an unnecessary c section. But instead they educated me on all my provider and birth options and helped me plan my birth, my dream birth. And when the day came they were the most incredible support team for my partner and I when I vaginally delivered my healthy precious baby boy at home. They were literally the BEST MONEY my partner and I have ever spent. Any prospective mommas, mommas to be, or current mommas you need La Bella Birth and Baby involved in your prenatal, birth, and postpartum care, it will be the best decision you make. I will forever be thankful and grateful for Chelsea and Susanna. They are by far the most kind, compassionate, caring, genuine women I have ever met!

I have used chelsea for two different births. Both of which were hbac birthday that had a long prodominal labor building up. She was a viral piece to our birthing team and knew exactly what I needed before I said it or with out me saying anything. She has many skills that we used including robozo, belly henna, sibling support, breastfeeding, and labor doula to name a few. She’s a compassionate and caring person and makes a wonderful doula always there with an ear to listen or a shoulder to cry on. I would recommend her again and again.
