What is a doula? 

(From my Training Institute: https://www.dona.org, DONA, Doula Organization of North America)

Like travel guides in a foreign country, birth and postpartum doulas help support new families through the life changing experience of having a baby!

Whether it’s a family’s first baby or their tenth, a doula can help make the birth and postpartum experience better. Today, a doula is defined as follows:

Doula

a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to a mother before, during and shortly after childbirth to help her achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible.

Countless scientific trials examining doula care demonstrate remarkably improved physical and psychological outcomes for both mother and baby. Doulas have a positive impact on the well-being of the entire family.

 

What do I offer as Your Doula? 

I only take on THREE doula clients at a time. 

This means individualized, personalized family care. 

How this works is we get on a phone call and we figure out what you (and if you have a partner) desire and need. From there we talk dates, prices, and we create the perfect package for you.
