What is a doula?

A doula is a trained professional, who provides physical, emotional, and educational support and advocacy to a birthing person before, during, and after birth. Doulas have proven effective.

A doula is not a primary care provider, and as such, does not offer or provide medical support.

Why are you a doula?

Birth work is my calling. I walk with each new person on the journey to bring their beautiful child into their arms. A calm, peaceful presence is a unique gift I bring into a birth room. Still know when it comes to advocating, I will not be quiet. You will not walk this journey alone. We will prepare together, from our first meeting, to your first meeting your child.

What do you DO as a doula?

As your doula I will meet with you for two prenatal meetings, be present with you during your labor, and meet with you for at least one postpartum check-in.

I will work to empower you to make informed decisions to experience the birth you choose.

You Get a Shirt. Someone Else Gets Birth Support.
Community support helps make it possible for me to provide my services to families who cannot currently afford to invest in them. And it spreads the word on why birth support is valuable. Be a part of the work!
