The Low Down on Doulas
A doula offers professionally trained labor support throughout your birth to support you physically, emotionally, and with information to help you make the right choice for you!
There are many ways to give birth.
There is no one right way,
but there is a way that's right for you.
I never make choices for you. You're the boss, and I always follow your lead. I'm not a nurse, or a midwife, nor do I have any kind of medical training.
Think of me as a childbirth educator who relaxes you at your home during your birth and helps you stay comfortable by using hands-on techniques like massage, while helping you stay calmer by giving you immediate information as you need it.
