WHY CHOOSE TO HAVE A DOULA?

BUILDING A RELATIONSHIP

Home births, delivering in a birthing center, or delivering in a hospital setting, all require you to feel like you're in a safe environment. We will use the time prior to birth get to know each other, explore options for birth, your "do's and don't's" and everything in-between. Together, we will will explore options that may optimize your birthing experience and help you understand the options that are available to you. Through several meetings, texts, and phone calls, I will offer unbiased facts to help you make the most informed decisions for your birth. 

BIRTHING GUIDANCE

Growing a human is a strange, yet magical, experience and everyone has their own opinion about what is best. As your doula, I will give you 24/7 unbiased answers to your questions, no matter how strange they may seem to you. Day or night, you can always text or call me. I'll refer you to your care provider when needed and I'll be there to help  and support you through your pregnancy.

POSTPARTUM SUPPORT

You did it! You brought a human into the world and it's the most exhilarating whirlwind of your life. My job doesn't stop once baby is born. I will still be there to check in on you and the newest addition to your family. When you're ready, I'll come visit you in your home and see how you and baby are coping. Along with in-home support, I can give you suggestive care to support groups, lactation consultants, and any additional postpartum care that may be beneficial to you and your baby.
