About me
Monumental Beginnings was founded in 2017 on Cape Cod, and now services families across the Cape as well as Providence, Rhode Island, Central Mass, Boston, and South Shore MA. An agency of professionals, Monumental Beginnings offers prenatal classes, birth doula services, daytime and overnight postpartum doula services, home visits with an IBCLC, and more! We specialize in supporting families through education and advocacy. 

Krista Sullivan, owner of Monumental Beginnings, started the practice as a solo adventure in 2017, and since developed it into a busy practice providing services throughout pregnancy, birth and into postpartum. Krista graduated in 2014 from Keene State College with degrees in Early Childhood Education and Women & Gender Studies. She went on to teach for several years in Boston Public Schools before founding Monumental Beginnings. A natural educator, she connected deeply with families and realized that her calling was helping families in their own homes. 

Krista specializes in working with first-time parents, single parent families, military families, high-risk pregnancies, infertility complications, immigrant families, adoption, LGBTQ community & Advanced Maternal Age. Krista maintains great working relationships with families and professionals throughout Rhode Island, South Shore Massachusetts, Cape Cod and Greater Boston. 

When not working with families, Krista enjoys time at the beach, walks and runs outside, essential oils, and day trips to new places.
