I am sure this question gets asked a lot, but naming a new business is hard!

I don't want to use just my name because it is difficult to spell and pronounce. And I don't want to use the name of the town I currently live in since we may be relocating in a year or two so I'd prefer the name not be regionally specific. 


Here is the list of names I have brainstormed so far, though not one of them jumps out at me as the one.


Wild Woman Birth Services

Steadfast Doula Services

Shooting Star Birth Support

Willow Tree Birth Services

Eveningstar Doula Services


Do you like any of these options? Or have any other suggestions?


Other considerations: In addition to birth doula services I might add postpartum support, lactation counseling, childbirth education, or full-spectrum doula services. Anything very sentimental is not my style (no angel/miracle/harmony/etc)

I'm not a birth professional, but I like "Shooting Star" or "Eveningstar." If you are thinking about adding postpartum support, childbirth education, and more, what about "Shooting Star Support for Pregnancy and Beyond"? or is that too long? Good luck picking out a name!

I like Willow Tree and Evening Star - both have a whimsy/earthy feel.
