Prenatal & Birth Doula
A birth doula assists in the education & preparation of a new life.
In labor we assist in creating a comforting, peaceful labor atmosphere, applying comfort measures to assist in pain relief providing support/relief for the birthing partner(s), and honoring the golden hour, protecting this important time of bonding & initial breastfeeding.
Families have the option of:
In-person support is available regardless of where/how you choose to birth
On-call childcare during labor in your home (a.k.a “sibling doula”)
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a doula?
A doula is typically defined as:
A trained professional who is not a healthcare provider and who supports another individual through a significant health-related experience, such as childbirth, miscarriage, induced abortion or stillbirth, or non-reproductive experiences such as dying.
A doula should never advocate for you, instead, we teach our families how to advocate for themselves, affirm their beliefs and desires, as well as help navigate your care in a way that aligns with their goals and desires.
