As your birth doula, I bring to the table a wealth of information and knowledge on all aspects of the birth process and I am invested in helping you reach a fulfilling birth experience. I will help you understand labor and birth, learn all the options that can come up in your path and help you figure out what would work best for you. I share resources with you that can help make pregnancy and labor easier, and help you think about and prepare for your postpartum period. I also teach you and your partner hands-on comfort techniques and positions to help labor progress.
Once we transfer from your home to the place of birth, I help preserve the birth atmosphere and help maintain respect for your labor surges. I believe that no one should be putting unnecessary pressure on you during labor and will help redirect the energy to a calm and peaceful. I anticipate your needs, and help you and your partner direct your focus to the monumental job you are doing. I sincerely care about each family I work with and am inspired by every birth I attend, just like I was with my first one.
