About me

Hey y'all! I'm Shelby Tolar. 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 ridiculous sunglasses. I can’t wait to meet you and gush over your adorable baby names and nursery colors soon!

Service introduction

I'm a Birth Boot Camp Instructor and teach classes that range from a 10 week Comprehensive course to one day workshops! We have tons of fun and learn hands on for both Mom and her birthing partner- from comfort measures, relaxation, labor stations (with guest doula) and pushing positions- it's a super fun class! We talk about preparing for Postpartum just as much as you've prepared for your birth and most classes come with an 8 video breastfeeding MRE by the amazing Mellanie Sheppard IBCLC (located at Gentle Beginnings Birth Center in Hurst - classes are Saturday and Sundays 1:30-4:00pm!)
