Why work with a Doula?
Professional labor companions, commonly known as doulas, provide a variety of services. As a birth doula, I provide emotional, physical, and educational support to a pregnant person and their birth partner(s) prenatally, during the birth experience, and in the early postpartum period. I strive to advocate for pregnant people and their partners by helping them to gather all the information they need to make decisions regarding preparation for labor, birth, and the early postpartum period that will provide them with the most benefit as individuals and as a family.
As your doula, I offer comfort measures and pain management techniques, such as massage, words of comfort and affirmation, visualization, and suggestions for movement and repositioning. I will also provide other logistical support and constant presence to help you create a satisfying birth experience. I will take time to get to know you and your birth companion(s) prenatally, and will continuously support you and your loved ones during your birth experience. As your doula, I work for you directly, not for your care provider or hospital.
