We’re reimagining care. Close to home.


Okkanti is reimagining care close to home. We’re dedicated to making it easier for doctors to refer without bias, for all pregnant and parenting people to find vetted, qualified support that they can trust, and to the success and sustainability of doulas, midwives, lactation specialists, postpartum doulas, and the pregnancy and parenting experts that are serving their communities.


Okkanti is a B-Corp with a mission to build generational health by reimagining care work and our cultures of care.

Okkanti birth story

Okkanti is Pali for ‘conception.’ It represents the “spark” of becoming: specifically three forces that ignite a new possibility- a birth of what has not been before.

Our founder has been exploring the power of home as a place where we receive care, and the possibilities of a better health care system, for more than 30 years. Okkanti emerged from listening to the needs of doulas and careworkers, accompanying the experiences of pregnant and parenting people, and a faith that we can redefine our systems of care to be built on greater respect, compassion and safety.
