Why hire a birth doula?
We will start with a meet and greet to get to know each other to find out if there is a place for me at your birth. Are you excited? Scared? Is this your first birth, or are you preparing for this birth while dealing with unresolved concerns/trauma from previous births? During our prenatal visits, I take the time to get to know you, your concerns, and your needs. I’m always available to contact by phone/email throughout, and will provide everything you require to make sure your birth experience is as rewarding and positive as possible.
I am here to offer you nonjudgemental support, education, and advocacy around your upcoming birth. The mere presence of a doula at your birth increases the likelihood of reflecting back upon your birth experience with positive feelings, and lowers your likelihood of requiring/desiring medical interventions. I will be a caring, informed, strong advocate for you.
As a certified Lactation Educator, I can answer many questions you may have about breastfeeding, and help you develop a strong foundation for your nursing relationship while you are still pregnant.
Doula is an ancient Greek word meaning, “a woman who serves”. You deserve to feel safe, confident, and supported during your birth. You deserve a doula.
