Discover What You Will Save When You Hire A Doula
A birth doula is a trained professional who provides education, and physical & emotional support to the new family before, during and just after birth."
As your doula, I will assist in evidence based birth education, making certain that you receive the information you need in order to make informed decisions.
I can also help with preparing your birth plan, should you choose to write one.
Having a doula present at birth has proven to result in shorter labors, as well as reduced need for pain medication and medical interventions.
This is accomplished all while helping the parents to feel secure and cared for.
