Milestones is a collaboration of practitioners serving the needs of individual and family wellness in Mid-Coast Maine and beyond. In addition to our individual services, we aim to cooperatively build a network of support for parents and individuals striving for whole-hearted joy, love and health in their selves, families and communities.
Our Mission: Milestones offers high-quality, evidence-based and holistically-oriented education, programs and support to individuals and families in the childbearing year and beyond. We aim to empower clients and encourage community connections so that each may experience their unique life milestones in a way that promotes individual and family wellness.
Classes and events in the space are designed to support you through various life Milestones including (but not limited to):
Loss and Grief
Find CONFIDENCE, STRENGTH, AND JOY on your journey to health and wellness.
There is no one right way to do things and we, Milestones, are here to facilitate, guide, support, and inform our clients and community members through moments in life where a little extra emotional, physical or spiritual support is needed and desired. While we are rooted in a holistic perspective, we come to clients with an open mind and from a place of non-judgment and loving support for any and all choices and perspectives.
Our co-founders Gina Forbes and Tiffany Lee Avery are birth professionals- Certified Doulas and Childbirth Educators. Gina and Tiffany's experience serves as the roots of Milestones, as they came together to collaborate on creating a safe space to do their work as childbirth professionals.
Soon into Milestones creation, the founders realized that this was not just about birth. This IS ABOUT LIFE! As Gina and Tiffany connected about their own life stories of birth and loss, they decided to think about Milestones as a place to literally hold people in all of their life transitions- be it birth, parenting struggles, divorce, loss of a loved one...
Milestones is a place where practitioners can "doula" people as they journey through many kinds of life transitions. We meet people where they are and walk with them through a moment in time, through a life event, on their journey toward wholeness, health, and joy in life.
Through our work with childbirth education, new parents, and the many others who walk through our doors, we aim to facilitate a process of exploration of individual values and development of skills and strategies so that clients may make their own unique choices and find their own way to health and wellness. We also aim to create and nurture genuine community connections with the belief that healthy communities are vital to our own well-being.
We all need each other in order to thrive.
Milestones welcomes you to our safe space of learning, healing and connection.
