Birth Doula Support

During your pregnancy, meeting with a doula will provide a space for you and your partner to discuss your hopes, desires, and wishes for your birth. You can also work through any fears, worries, or concerns you may have so that you can let go and feel more optimistic about your birth. As your doula shares unbiased information about  various birth options, you will become more empowered to make informed decisions and gain confidence in your ability to advocate for yourself and hold conversations with your medical providers. You will have the opportunity to identify your birth preferences as a way to have a "plan" and feel more prepared for your birthing experience. Continuous doula support throughout labor and delivery creates a calm, peaceful, relaxing, and encouraging birthing environment! Whether you want to have an all-natural, unmedicated birth or prefer to have an epidural--a doula is there to support you as you do what you feel is best for you and your baby! 

What you can expect from me!

As your doula I will provide support in a variety of ways throughout your pregnancy, labor and delivery:

  • Prenatal visits including education, resources, and birth planning

  • Working as a team with your partner or labor support person

  • Emotional support through encouragement, motivation, reassurance, and positive affirmations

  • Physical support such as massage, counter-pressure, use of the rebozo, and helping you get into various positions that will encourage labor progress

  • Comfort measures such as deep breathing, visualizations, music, dim lights, and hydrotherapy 

  • Knowledge of the labor and birthing process that will be beneficial throughout the course of labor

  • Keeping you hydrated, moving, and comfortable

  • Reminding you of your birth preferences and helping you to navigate conversations with medical staff as needed

  • On-going support 1-2 hours after delivery
