Birth Doula Services, CD(DONA)

Me and Client

As a birth doula, I accompany women in labor to help ensure a safe and satisfying birth experience. I respect a woman's unique relationship with her partner and work to strengthen that bond by supporting them as a laboring couple. I am trained and certified by DONA International, have given birth to two children, and have attended sixteen births since the summer of 2009. I draw on my professional training, knowledge and experience to provide emotional support, physical comfort, and advocacy with the staff to make sure you have the information you need to make informed decisions as they arise in labor.  I can provide reassurance and perspective to you and your partner, before, during, and after the birth of your baby. I can make suggestions for labor progress, and help with relaxation, massage, positioning and other techniques for comfort. I am independent and self-employed. As your doula, I am working for you, not your caregiver or hospital.
