of pregnancy and childbirth complications are preventable.

When we feel off balance mentally and emotionally, it’s easier to suffer in silence at work or home instead of seeking help from professionals.

Mental healthcare that centers your joy



Looking at all factors that can impact your goals, we’ll deliver a snapshot of where you stand and where you’re headed. If you have a family member or partner, we can ask about them, too.



Based on the information you share, we’ll pair you with a dedicated Candlelit Care coach, who will review your results, answer any questions and create a flexible plan that reflects your reality. We coordinate care with your existing providers so that nothing falls through the cracks.



From provider referrals to navigating insurance or treatment, our coaches stick beside you in whichever way works best for you - text, email, or video or call. We make it easy to stay on top of your goals with exercises, action items and reminders.

The Candlelit Care Approach


Black women are at a higher risk of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs) before, during and up to a year after pregnancy.

We’re dedicated to making sure Black women and women of color are valued, seen and respected in healthcare. When we feel off balance mentally, it can feel easier to suffer in silence at work or home rather than seek help from professionals. That’s why we’re changing how women are screened, monitored and treated, especially when starting a family, to reduce their overall risk and symptoms of burnout, anxiety and depression through virtual consultations with licensed therapists.

Testimonial from the ladies

I thought it was useful. I really loved the idea of a birth plan. I think a lot of people think about what they want to do once they get to birth but never think about setting a plan from when you're first pregnant until after birth.

Candlelit Parent

I actually do really like the questions that are being asked here because these are questions that I need help figuring out.. so they're very thought provoking questions, which I like. I like that there's an option to read, listen or watch because sometimes I can't listen to stuff if I'm in a place and or looking at something on my phone.
