BIRTH JOURNEY

"If a woman doesn’t look like a goddess during labor,
then someone isn’t treating her right.”

-Ina May Gaskin

What is a doula?
A doula is a labor assistant, a sisterhood, a birth educator, a helpful hand for Mama Bear and Papa Bear on their magical journey, a voice for a woman during her most open and vulnerable life experience, and a confidant to consult when feeling lost or confused during and after pregnancy.

She is support when you need it most.

How can a doula help me on my birth journey?
 

Birth Support

Birth support services include:

  • (1) pre-natal visits, no additional charge.

  • Unlimited email and phone support.

  • 24/7 on call support starting 2 weeks before your due date and until you give birth.

  • Continuous mental, emotional and physical support through-out your birthing time.

  • (2) postpartum visits

In the pre-natal visits we discuss your birth vision and I help you create a birth plan if you have not already done so.

“A baby is like the beginning of all things: wonder, hope a dream of possibilities. In a world that is cutting down its trees to build highways, losing its earth to concrete, babies are almost the only remaining link in nature, with the natural world of living things from which we spring.” – Eda J. Leshan
