What I do...

Whether it’s a family’s first baby or their tenth, a doula can help make the birth and postpartum experience better. Today, a doula is defined as follows: a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to a birthing person before, during and shortly after childbirth to help them achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible.
After beginning our relationship with a complimentary consult, as your doula I am committed to your health and well being. I am available whenever needed throughout your entire pregnancy as well as after giving birth. I will be there to provide you with continuous emotional and physical support, and to answer any and all questions you may have. I have a network of birth professionals who can assist with any other needs you have, as well.
Birthing Guidance
Get extra personal support throughout the entirety of your birthing journey. As your doula, I am committed to offering unwavering, unbiased support to you and your family before, during, and after birth. I will stay in close contact in order to routinely check how you’re doing and offer any support needed. During your labor, I will support you both physically and mentally in order to help you achieve the birth you've envisioned.
Post-partum Support
From our initial meeting all the way through your pregnancy and birth, I take the time to get to know you, your concerns, and your needs. I’m always available to contact by phone/email and will do everything possible to ensure that your experience is as calm and positive as possible. In addition to your at-home postpartum visit, I also have a network of professionals to assist you & baby with any needs you may have.
