Doula Support
As a professional birth doula, I do

  • provide emotional, physical, and informational support to women and their families during before, during, and just after childbirth
  • support choices you make
  • use non-medical skills and tools for comfort during labor
  • facilitate communication between clients and their care providers
  • work with both partners as a team to create a positive birth experience
  • provide continuous support

As a professional birth doula, I do not​

  • perform medical or clinical tasks
  • make decisions for my clients
  • speak on your behalf to care providers
  • judge the choices you make
  • have my own agenda
  • replace partner 
  • change shifts
So many times, when I talk about what I do, someone says, "That sounds great! Do I have to be pregnant to have a doula?" 

or, "Wow, I could have used a doula for myself while my husband was in surgery!" 

or, "Can I just have you come to my house and take care of me for a bit?".

To that, my answer is that no, you do not have to be pregnant to have a doula. I would be happy to hold your hand while you wait for your husband to come out of surgery.

Yes, I will go with you to your doctor's appointment.  

Yes, I will help you through any bad day or event for which you want some extra support.  

I will listen to all your concerns. I will support you without judgment. I am a safe space. 

And yes, I will come to your house and take care of you and pamper you. I will run a bath for you. Rub your feet. Encourage you to nap. Make you a snack. 

Everyone deserves a day off.
