  • What is a Doula?
    The word Doula comes from ancient Greek and describes a professional support person who is experienced in childbirth, newborn care and postpartum recovery. A Postpartum (or postnatal) Doula is a trained professional who will encourage and nurture you as you cross the threshold into new parenthood by providing the physical, emotional and evidence based informational support you need to heal after birth, or transition through your adoption or surrogacy experience. Their goal is to ensure you are nourished and informed, so that you may make the best decisions for your growing family. This may include information and support in breastfeeding and lactation, newborn care, light household tasks, meal preparation and care of the birthing person and baby or babies. A Full Spectrum Doula provides support to families across the full spectrum of the pregnancy experience, including birth, adoption, surrogacy. I am here for you from conception until after the baby (or babies) arrive and everything in-between. Full spectrum also means supporting people through pregnancy loss, including; miscarriage, stillbirth and abortion. Birth Doulas accompany people in labor to help ensure a safe and satisfying birth experience. Doulas draw on their education, professional training, and experience to provide emotional support, and physical comfort. Doulas can provide reassurance and perspective, make suggestions for labor progress, and help with relaxation, massage, positioning, and other techniques for comfort. Doulas are independently contracted and self-employed. Your doula is working for you, not your caregiver or hospital.
