A labor doula is a non-medical professional trained in childbirth who provides emotional, physical, and educational support to pregnant people and their families.
The doula's purpose is to help clients have a safe, memorable, and empowering birthing experience.
During our prenatal visits, client's and their families are offered childbirth education to gain a better understanding of the risks and benefits of potential procedures/interventions, and possible complications in late pregnancy, labor, delivery, and the immediate postpartum period. Clients are encouraged to take an active role in the planning and management of their care from the development of a birth plan to map out their postpartum care.
During labor and delivery, doulas provide support and comfort by using various natural pain-relief methods including breathing techniques, relaxation techniques, massage, rebozo work, movement, and numerous laboring positions.
From our initial meeting all the way throughout your pregnancy and delivery, we take the time to get to know you, your concerns and your needs. We are always available via phone/email/text/video chat to answer any questions, address your concerns, or fears. We strive to provide everything you require to make sure your experience is as calm and positive as possible.
Doulas do NOT offer medical advice or perform any medical and/or clinical procedures. However, we will offer referrals to any appropriate studies, published books, in addition to professionals that can provide adequate care.
