Birth Doula Services

Parents holding their baby's feet with their wedding rings on the baby's toes. 

A doula is a mother's companion before, during and after birth. As your doula, I am there to support you during the birth of your child. I am there to help you write your story, by helping you and your partner be as educated and prepared as possible. I will share information and resources with you prenatally, and we will work together, as a team, to create your birth plan. I support you and your partner throughout the process, offering continual support so you have the best birth possible.

I want you to be confident, secure, and empowered in your decisions without any judgement or pressure. My aim for your labor and birth is a calm, supportive and loving atmosphere, where I hold space for your needs.
