About Me:

Believer-Wife-VBAC Mama

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. My business name, “Love to Mama” sums up my POV perfectly. I truly think there’s nothing better than the call to motherhood, which is why I LOVE teaching about birth, postpartum and the sanctifying process it can be!


I created Love to Mama's Postpartum Workshop based off my own experiences when I became a Mama for the first time. I felt SO prepared for birth through extensive Birth Boot Camp classes, but Postpartum was an afterthought. I quickly hit several hurdles right away and felt so unprepared. I needed help but didn't know where to start and the whole process of trying to find those specific practitioners/therapists was overwhelming! I had no idea about oral ties- postpartum anxiety- or a strained relationship- but I found myself facing them all almost immediately.


I hope that this platform that I have created can help you make connections to the amazing community that surrounds you and can support you through your 4th trimester, whether it's your first baby or tenth. I hope and pray that you feel empowered, educated and excited to enter into this new chapter through planning a postpartum that can be truly beautiful and even redemptive! Incredibly happy you're here!

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."

They Say:

We were lucky enough to find Shelby through our birthing center and spent ten of the best weeks of our pregnancy with her! As first time parents, she answered every single one of our questions and genuinely cared for all of our concerns. The information and experience we gained from her class will stick with us forever. She unknowingly strengthened our relationship and gave us so much confidence in pregnancy, labor, giving birth and becoming parents. She truly is like family and we were heartbroken to be done with our class. Any time I doubt myself now being a mommy her voice is in my ear! She is one of the most empathetic and compassionate people I know.
