Our Story

I'm a doula and childbirth birth educator in San Francisco.  I have been serving pregnant families for six years and love cooking health-supportive food for friends and family in my free time.

A few years ago, I started learning about the potential benefits of eating dates during pregnancy and the postpartum period. I began recommending them to my pregnant clients.  While many started eating them and saw the benefits, they struggled to consistently incorporate them into their diets.

Determined to find a solution, I started experimenting with dates at home to try to make them easier to eat (I love dates, but six dates is a lot of chewing!), more portable and more delicious while only using healthy and natural ingredients.  After tinkering and recipe testing for months, I landed on the simple formula that you see today...and Due Dates was born!

I'm passionate about healthy living and grateful to be able to make a difference in the lives of pregnant women.  I hope you'll enjoy Due Dates as much as I do.
