First Blossom Birth Support and Doula Services


Helping families get off to the best start possible is at the heart of Trillium Connection’s mission. Your family deserves the best care and attention to welcome your little one into the world. Research has proven that having a doula reduces C-sections, perception of labor pain, increases breast-feeding rates and helps families bond as a unit ensuring the best start to a happy and healthy life. Appropriate mother child attachment is one of the single most effective predictors of lifelong mental health and is critical in the peri-natal period.

Brenda Cleary is a Registered Nurse, CAPPA certified labor and delivery doula, Centering Pregnancy certified prenatal educator, labor and delivery translator as well as IBCLC certified peer lactation educator.

“I don’t know what my wife and I would have done without Brenda serving as doula for the birth of our son Mateo! From beginning to end Brenda was there every step of the way. She delivered quality in home birth education and helped me as a father truly connect with and support my wife. Having Brenda there made it possible for us to have the birth experience we wanted and starting our family out on the right foot.”
Julien Riel Salvatorre husband of Alejandra Arriaza

“I worked with Brenda Cleary many nights as an RN on the labor and delivery ward… She was a great help to staff and was remarkable in her ability to connect with patients despite multiple language and cultural barriers. She truly knows how to be of service to others and has quite a gift for empowering women to connect with their birthing process.”
—Kathy King RN

“Miss Brenda was my art teacher in school and when I had my son she was the first person I called to help me with my labor. She was there by my side helping me with my contractions the whole time… When I had my daughter a few years later I called her again as she was so helpful the first time. I am really grateful to Brenda as she was able to help me in a way that no one else could in two of the most important moments of my life. Thank you!”

Lizz Martinez

“Brenda was an absolute angel! I have never felt so cared for and held in all my life. She was there with me the whole way in the birth of my daughter, helped my nervous husband help me and even rubbed my feet! Thank you so much!”
