Questions?

A doula is an experienced professional who provides continuous physical, emotional, and informational support to the person in labor before, during and just after birth.

More than 70 international independent studies have shown that when doulas attend births, labors are shorter.  Consequently, there are fewer complications, babies are healthier and they breastfeed more easily.  ACOG recommends doulas

As a professional doula, I have choose to be certified:
-Certified  DONA International birth doula
-Certified Lamaze International childbirth educator 
-Certified newborn care specialist – IFSI
-Degree in childhood education

However, doulas aren’t always required to hold a certification.  They aren’t licensed by their State. 

The doula’s goal is to support families to have a safe, pleasant, and empowering birthing experience. She cares that their clients have options.  A birth doula provides evidence-based information so the birthing parents can make informed decisions.  A birthing doula will optimize your chances of a vaginal birth even if you opt for an epidural.  She is trained in using safe labor positions and coping techniques during medicalized birth. 

This is about you!  

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. 

-Doula services might be reimbursed by your FSA/HSA. 
-Payment plans and gift certificates can be purchased as a “baby shower” gift
-You can add any of my services to your customized baby registry list/website

It’s never too early nor too late to hire a doula! However, we recommend you hire your doula during your second trimester.  You could then benefit from her support and educational resources as you prepare for childbirth.  It would also give you plenty of time to get to know her and build a unique relationship.

Expecting and birthing families have more empowered birth experiences when they are physically, and emotionally prepared for the birthing process . This is why I encourage my clients to attend a birth class. My clients are encourage to find a class that meets their expectations.
