What is a doula?
A doula accompanies — or emotionally “holds” — a woman throughout the birthing process to assist her in having a more rewarding birth experience. As a doula, I provide emotional support, physical comfort, and (if requested) spiritual support.
I provide information so that the mother or couple can make informed decisions when questions inevitably arise during the birth. And I provide reassurance and perspective to the mother’s partner, encourage thoughtful discussion on labor progression, and use massage, positioning, and other approaches to encourage relaxation.
Please feel free to contact me. It would be a pleasure to talk with you about how I can assist your birth.
