About Me:

Believer-Wife-VBAC Mama

Hey y'all! I'm Shelby Tolar & the founder of Love to Mama. I’m a wife to a hunky man who I married in 2011 and we have two beautiful spunky little girls (born in 2017 and 2020.) Being a girl mom is THE BEST because my house is a constant explosion of baby dolls and bows. My birth class name, “Love to Mama” sums it up perfectly. I truly think there’s nothing better than the call to motherhood, which is why I LOVE teaching about birth. Besides being an instructor, I am also a Primal/Paleo Health Coach, and pretty much just love helping people be educated in the things that matter most. Besides all things birth and wellness, I love coffee, cooking shows, and oversized sunglasses. I can’t wait to meet you and gush over your adorable baby names and nursery colors soon!

Class Options

They Say:

" I learned so much from our classes with you and was WAY less nervous about what our birth would look like after everything you taught us. I’ve always been a hands on learner, so working with you was a major help to me and we appreciate you."
