As your birth doula, I will provide emotional, physical, and informational support tailored to your specific set of circumstances, personal goals and values.

Individualized support will be a central aspect of your care. I do not have a particular preference for your birth plan. I will help you figure out what kind of birth experience you desire, and assist you in your achieving that. As a birth doula that believes in choice - and since this is your birth - I want what YOU want!

*Fun fact. Professional childbirth preparation and face to face support has been reported to boost morale, increase confidence, enhance partner involvement/inclusion, decrease unnecessary intervention, and reduce anxiety/fear which lends to a more positive and satisfying birth memory and postpartum transition!

 
 

 

Need Sleep? Similar to a “night nanny” and often confused for a “night nurse”, an overnight postpartum doula will care for your baby (or babies) while you sleep, as well as provide lactation support and perform light household duties such as laundry and tidying.

Let’s talk about how an extra set of hands can make your postpartum transition more enjoyable!

 

Basic newborn care such as diaper changes, feedings, and soothing are taken care of while you rest.

Whether you only need a few nights of sleep, an extra set of hands while you recover from the birth experience, or would like an extended period of care, a postpartum doula might be a great addition to your support system. Sleep peacefully, knowing your family is in good hands.
