What is a Doula?

 
 

As a birth doula I work closely with expecting mothers, partners, and families through pregnancy to ensure that you are educated and informed about birth as well as physically and emotionally prepared to start this beautiful new chapter. I provide physical and emotional support during the length of your labor and delivery. I will also help facilitate communication with the staff, Midwife or OBGyn to ensure you have all the information you need to make informed decisions regarding your baby's birth. I provide reassurance and perspective to you and your partner, make suggestions for labor progress, and help with relaxation, massage, positioning and other techniques for your comfort. I am independent and self-employed, and I am working for you to provide you the support you deserve. You and your baby will determine your birth so let's plan for your deepest desires and have a meaningful mindful birth.
