What is a doula?

“Birth doulas offer emotional support, encouragement and wisdom throughout labor and birth. Postpartum doulas support women and families through the transformation that a new baby brings to a family.” ~ DONA International


BIRTH DOULA: I support women for all birthing situations including induced labor, c-section delivery, medicated delivery and natural unmedicated deliveries. All women can benefit from the help of a doula. I can come to your home to support you as needed and help you when its time to go to the hospital or call the midwife. I attended a DONA approved training in 2007. I have received additional training as a HypnoBabies Hypno-Doula as well as Hypnobirthing (The Mongan Method; certified birth professional) and I am a childbirth educator for Your Birth Experience and Blissborn.

POSTPARTUM DOULA: Simply put, I can be the extra set of hands you need during the postpartum period. Once the visitors are gone, you will need help around the house, baby care advice, breastfeeding assistance, light household chore help, sibling care, or other duties around the house to help you enjoy your “babymoon”
