The Pregnancy, Postpartum, and Beyond Group is intended for those trying to conceive, pregnant, postpartum, or just someone with kids looking for community. This group is FREE for all who attend and is intended as a place of community for those experiencing a similar season of life. Each month we have one birth/postpartum professional join our conversation helping us to grow and learn more about ourselves and our community.

The group will provide a safe and welcoming space where families can share their prenatal and postpartum experiences, reflect, & connect. This is a community event for families in the northwest suburbs and surrounding Chicago area. Non-gestational partners and babies are welcome!

This group is led by Rebekkah Carney, certified DONA Birth doula and Postpartum Doula.

Our Team


I have a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Michigan Technological University, this provides an ability to analyze situations quickly, assist in making informed choices, and drives my passion for providing evidence-based resources for my birth and postpartum families. My passion for doula work and childbirth education is where my heart lies and I am elated to serve families during this very momentous time in their lives. I’m a Certified DONA Birth Doula and DONA trained Postpartum Doula, and a Professional Member of Evidence Based Birth.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling, being outdoors, fishing, paddling, cooking, baking, and spending time with my kids.

I currently live in Hoffman Estates, IL and have been supporting families in Chicagoland and surrounding suburbs since 2019.
