Birth & Labor Doula Support

My role as your doula is to support your emotional and physical needs during the labor and birth process. Research has shown that women who were supported by a doula during birth were less likely to have a cesarean section, less likely to use synthetic oxytocin to advance labor, less likely to use any pain medication, and less likely to rate their childbirth experience negatively. Whether you're planning a home birth, birth center birth, or hospital birth, a doula is a great addition to your birth team and can help you feel empowered and supported during your birth journey. I want all of my clients to feel cared for, supported, and empowered with knowledge of their body/the birth process in order to make informed decisions. I want them to be able to look back on that day and remember it as amazing and transformative.
