How did I get here?

My Story

My name is Lydia-Carlie (she/her) and I am queer, Black Haitian birthworker based in the San Francisco Bay Area. My journey as birthworker began very early on; I was raised in a multi-generational Haitian household where I was immersed in the births around me, fascinated with caring for my younger sibling and cousins. I am a certified Birth & Postpartum Doula, a Reiki Master/Teacher, and a certified Neuromuscular Massage Therapist specializing in prenatal, perinatal, and postpartum recovery massage. My practice, SageFemme Wellness supports families through their pregnancy and birth journeys.


My mission with SageFemme is to fill the gaps in prenatal care and postpartum recovery through therapeutic massage therapy services and comprehensive birth support services. I believe that the journey from pregnancy through birth is a marathon that requires a support team! I offer the guidance, emotional support, and physical support needed during this time so that every birthing experience is safe, positive, and empowering.
