 DOULA 

A doula is a trained, professional birth worker providing support to woman and their families - emotional support, informational support and physical comfort measures.

The word doula is a Greek word meaning women’s servant. Women have been serving others in childbirth for many centuries and have proven that support from another woman has a positive impact on the labor process.

As your doula I am there to make your birthing experience positive and empowering. I believe strongly in the strength of woman and the birthing process. I am there to to help you and your partner achieve the birth you desire and to be your advocate throughout your childbirth journey.

When you hire me as you Doula I will visit you before your baby in born to get to know and connect with you and your partner and to learn your birth plan and preferences. I will be there for continuous support during your labour and childbirth and will visit you postpartum to process your birth and help with breastfeeding.

"May

Your body be strong

Your womb be open

Your support be well

Your baby be born

Your mind be peaceful

In Health. Happiness,

and Harmony"

  • less likely to have a cesarean birth
  • less likely to use any pain medication
  • more likely to rate their childbirth experience positively
