Birth & Postpartum Doula
A doula is a trained, non-medical professional who provides informational, emotional and practical physical support throughout pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period.
More simply put, a doula is a guide and companion: there to assist the mother and her family before, during and after childbirth. Doulas listen to your concerns and wishes, help you find answers to your questions and soothe you during labor, all while remaining unbiased.

Why hire a Doula?
A birth doula brings knowledge and experience to each kind of birth whether it's a medicated, non-medicated, cesarean, hospital, birth-center or home birth. We are trained to support you no matter your choice and circumstance. You choose what’s best for you and I will support you without judgement through the entire process. Regardless of birth outcome, women who use doulas report a higher rate of satisfaction overall with their childbirth experience.
All mothers and families can benefit from hiring a postpartum doula. Whether you’re a first time mom, going on your fifth, expecting multiples, or even adopting. No matter your journey to get there, that postpartum period is an incredible and vulnerable time in a family's life. Special, tailor made support for the mother and family can make a difference by helping all adjust, bond and grow together.
Birth is an everyday miracle. It's amazing to witness how wonderfully created a woman's body is and to see new life come into the world. Each birth is as unique as the woman and child. When a woman finds her birthing and mothering rhythm she is tapping into a deep well of intuition, hope, and fierce intensity. It's my goal to help a mother find that strength that's already within herself, no matter what kind of birth she chooses and no matter what curve balls life throws her way. Once found, this insight and inner strength is carried over into a woman's life beyond birthing. Witnessing that transformation is what makes it truly an honor to be a woman's doula.
