Birth Doula

Services

All families should have support through labor and birth

Why have a doula?

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

- Dr. John Kennell

A doula is a trained labor supporter who provides a birther and her partner with continuous emotional and physical comfort throughout labor and birth.  We also help you to prepare for birth by helping you understand your options and giving you tools to prepare your mind and body.  

Your birth is something you will remember all your life, my goal is to help ensure it will be a positive one.  
Evidence shows that birthers with continuous 1:1 support are:

28%

Less likely to have a cesarean section

31%

Less likely to use synthetic oxytocin to speed up labor

9%

Less likely to use any pain medication

34%

Less likely to rate their childbirth experience negatively
