Doula - Childbirth Education

Listen to what my clients say

“It was like my wife had a second partner there, except Odile actually knew what she was doing. Trust me: you will be very glad you hired Odile”. – Leo 

“If a doula were a drug, it would be unethical not to use it.”

Dr. John H. Kennell

“Birth may be a matter of a moment, but it is a unique one.”

Frederick Leboyer

“To change the work, we must first change the way the babies are being born."

Michel Odent

Professional Doula & Childbirth Education Services

Doulas are professional trained in pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum support.  They provide emotional, physical, psychological and educational support to the expecting and new families.  They are not medical professional.  American Pregnancy Association 

Studies show that childbirth education reduces stress and anxiety and improves maternity care outcomes. Parents

I support natural, medicated (epidural), and c-section births.  I have experience support families that desire an hospital birth, a homebirth, a birth-center birth. 

Breastfeeding/Chestfeeding is a personal decision.  However, WHO recommends breastmilk exclusively (no formula, juice, or water) for the first six month of life.  Breastmilk is the best food for babies. It is safe, free, healthy and contains antibodies and nutrients.  

 

Doulas and midwives are different. They both assist families during pregnancy, birth and postpartum, but in different ways. 

Midwives are medical professional.  Doulas are trained professional who provide well-being and education support. 

A midwife is a health care provider, while a doula is more of a childbirth coach.
