Kim Humble ~ Owner/Operator
Kim has been passionately supporting and working with families on their journey to parenthood since 1999. She has a degree in Child Development and psychology with women's studies as her emphasis. Kim is also the owner of Chico Doula Circle where she supports all types of families, including intended parents and surrogates, as they navigate pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period. Her work as a doula brought her into the world of surrogacy in 2009. Watching that baby take its first breath, seeing the intended parents fall in love at first sight, and the joy brought to the surrogate by being able to give in that capacity, brought Kim to the realization that this was her life path. Her experience as a three time surrogate and the amazing relationship she established and has maintained with her intended parents, her business and educational background, as well as her background and experience with birth work and LGBT family building, all lends itself to a unique passion for and ability to guide and support families on their surrogacy journeys.
Samantha Bruton ~ Surrogate intake and support specialist
Samantha’s passion for helping families through pregnancy and childbirth led her to become a birth doula; working both privately and as a volunteer doula for a Sacramento area hospital. After needing to shelve doula work indefinitely, she started seeking other outlets for her passions and interests which led to her work with Kim and Supportive Conceptions. Sam acts in the role of Surrogate Support Services Specialist and assists with surrogate pre-screening and intake for women interested in pursuing surrogacy. She has completed a beautiful journey as a surrogate through SCS, delivering boy/girl twins in 2018. Sam is a Sacramento resident and Mom of two, and loves the process of connecting with Northern California women interested in embarking on this incredible journey of surrogacy.
