Doula Support

When it comes to birth, your experience as the birthing person matters. The support you feel around you, your knowledge and understanding of what is happening with your body, even the more subtle things like the atmosphere in the room as you labor--all of it matters. It matters for so many reasons, and my ultimate goal as a birth doula is to facilitate whatever is necessary in each moment to make your birth experience the absolute best that it can be. Sometimes that's quiet and steady verbal reassurance or hands on comfort to help ease pain during the intensity of labor. Sometimes it's coaching a partner and empowering him/her in their own ability to be your rock and cheerleader with confidence and effectiveness. Other times it's simply being the one to grab a coffee and a snack for the partner that has forgotten to eat, so that he doesn't have to leave your side in the hospital room (and also so that he doesn't pass out). ;)

I provide this physical and emotional support for every single type of birth (as long as it is attended by a certified healthcare professional), and do so with zero judgement or agenda.
