Assonta Wagner is a birth and postpartum doula serving families in Calvert County, and the military.
What's Your Birth Story?
Every woman is born with gifts. She has beauty and strength that comes from within, given to her to write her own birth story; it is her power, confidence, and courage-her Natural Grace.
What Does it Mean to "Write Your Own Birth Story?"
Learn all you can about labor, childbirth, and newborn care. Educating yourself about the labor and birth process gives you more power to be in control of not only your labor but also your birth experience. Decreasing your stress level increases your self control during labor. The information you acquire helps you create a birth plan that best suits you. If your birth plan does not go as expected, with knowledge, you can be part of the decision making process. Procedures are done WITH you, not TO you. Along the way, you will learn more about yourself: how do you handle pain, stress, and learn new ways to cope.
Hello! My name is Assonta Wagner. I am a birth and postpartum doula. I love working with parents, babies and children. I enjoy seeing the sense of accomplishment and empowerment that families have when they not only learn and use that acquired knowledge in their parenting journey.
I am humbled to be invited to share one of the most intimate, exciting episodes in a family's life for Southern Maryland, DC, NOVA and the associated military community. Having a baby is the hardest, best work you'll ever do; but it's the most rewarding. I will strive to ensure that your labor and birth experience is the best it can be for your family.
