I’m not currently accepting new clients because I’m writing up a storm. I wish you the best in your pregnancy and postpartum journey!
A doula is a trained, non-medical supporter of pregnant women and their supporters during childbirth.
A doula is a continuous presence throughout your labor. That means, even when a shift changes or another supporter gets tired, your doula will stay with you. A doula will provide you with the educational resources you need to make informed decisions for you and your baby, so that you and your partner can advocate for yourselves as a team in the midst of labor. A doula will remind you of your intentions for your bith, so that you can have the most satisfying birth experience possible. A doula will be a compassionate, informed guide throughout the process of pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period, to make sure that you can be prepared for your new role of “mom.” And a doula will let you tell her your story once it’s all over.
Every woman wants her birth to be celebrated.
After all, whether this is your first baby or your last, you still have to carry a baby in your belly for nine months. You still have to bring a baby into the world, however it happens. And you still get to hold a slippery, new body in your arms when it’s all over.
Of course, everyone’s goal is the same, no matter if you wear a hospital gown or a stethoscope: we’re all aiming for a healthy baby and a healthy mom.
You have burning questions that keep you up at night, and I believe that every pregnant woman deserves to receive personalized education about pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting. You feel anxious about the pain of childbirth, and I believe that every pregnant woman deserves a caring professional to help her work through her fears. You wonder whether your partner will come through amidst the intensity of labor, and I believe every family needs the support of a guide who can help them meet their goals and give them direction throughout their birth experience. You wonder if you are strong enough for birth, good enough to be a mom, and confident enough to deal with whatever comes up; I believe every mom and mom-to-be needs someone to speak the words that empower her.
