Colleen founded Sugar Heal Gang in 2019 in order to innovate and revolutionize natural health care in communal power with the Black healers she knew and trusted. The Black Maternal Health Care Fund was started by the gang during the first summer of the global pandemic in order to provide holistic maternity services to Black birthing families in Los Angeles at no cost. Colleen uses Acuvibration to address mental, physical, emotional and energetic imbalances in individuals and couples. Her innovative maternity care protocols have been used for miscarriage prevention, natural labor induction, restarting stalled labors, clearing infection, breastfeeding support, natural pain management, reducing blood pressure and more.

Licensed midwife and Peristeam Hydrotherapist, Raquel leads the Sugar Heal birth team in giving comprehensive holistic care and loving attention to all of our mamas and their growing babies. Raquel's midwifery care is revolutionary in that she incorporates antepartum and postpartum yoni steam services in order to naturally prepare the womb pre-labor, during birth and postpartum. She also works closely with each of the Sugar Heal practitioners employing them often with the goal of supporting a pleasurable, empowered and trauma free birthing journey.
