"The birth of a child is one of the most profound human experiences you can have.

Our goal is to make it a peaceful one, too."

The Nurturing Root, founded in 2011 by Carmen Calvo, was established as a means to address the difficulties in her own birth and postpartum experience. With the success of her personal experience with placenta encapsulation services, The Nurturing Root became Carmen’s way of helping birthing parents triumph in one of life’s most rewarding, albeit difficult times. Over the years, The Nurturing Root has grown and now offers a full menu of birth and postpartum support services throughout Baltimore and the surrounding counties. Allow The Nurturing Root's dedicated and compassionate birth professionals to hold your hand through this most amazing journey of becoming a parent.

What our clients say

We love our clients and strive to bring exceptional service to each family we have the honor of serving.
Working with Carmen & Kristie was wonderful; they were such a joy to have in our home. Not only did they complete the placenta encapsulation process seamlessly, they also shared valuable knowledge and recommendations

It was evident through her energy how passionate she is about her job... I don’t think there is a better person to represent and be part of The Nurturing Root team. Thanks again Carmen and Hannah. This was a fantastic experience!

While I learned a lot, I think my husband benefited the most from all the information offered. The class made him even more excited about our upcoming home birth and he felt in better position to help me during the process.
