Birth Doula

“A birth doula is a person trained and experienced in childbirth who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to the mother before, during and just after childbirth” (DONA International).

A Doula is not a medical staff member or performs medical tasks. She does not replace the partner or midwife. She does not advocate for the mother.

So what does she do?

As a Birth Doula, I help to empower the mother and give her a voice by providing information for the family on various choices during labor and birth that they may discuss with their provider. I support the mother and the partner through medicated and unmedicated labor, vaginal birth, or a Cesarean birth by providing relaxation and comfort techniques. I am there to meet the needs of the family so that they may have a beautiful and positive birth. This means I can step in and be the coach or step back and guide the partner in coaching. Maybe a combination of both!

Rainbow Baby Birth

Those who are having a Rainbow Baby, or a baby after a loss through miscarriage or stillbirth,  may need extra support during their pregnancy, birth and postpartum experience.

My goal is to help guide and support you on this journey with as much ease and comfort as possible. Please contact me for package information.


Distance Doula Care

Sometimes families are not allowed to have an extra person in the room. Sometimes they want to be able to ask questions and have someone provide ideas and support, but they don’t really want someone else present at the birth. Distance Doula Care allows these families to have the support of a doula at the time of their birth through phone calls, text messaging, and/or Facetime or Skype.

  • Initial Consultation (Free)
  • In-person Birth Wishes Prenatal Visit (up to 2 hours)
  • In-person Comfort Measures Prenatal Visit (up to 2 hours)
