A birth doula is best described as a non-medical support person that assists the birthing family continuously, throughout the entire pregnancy, birth and immediately postpartum. Doulas are trained in the physiology and psychology of birth, armed with information and the unique art of honoring, encouraging and physically comforting the family throughout the entire process.
As a birth attendant entrusted with the honor of occupying someone’s birth space, I am committed to providing respectful, inclusive, and non-judgemental support/advocacy to families of all ethnicities, cultures and dynamics.
Comprehensive prenatal sessions cover a wide variety of topics including birth preparation, informed decision-making, comfort measures, navigating the hospital birth environment, communicating your wishes effectively with your provider, and the unique hormonal processes involved as your birthing time unfolds. Your prenatal visits will be informative, yet based on the content that you would like to cover.
