What is a doula?

About me

I have a passion for helping other women transition into motherhood.  I enjoy supporting moms both in birth and in the postpartum period.  I am a prior Bradley Method instructor and currently working towards my postpartum doula certification through Birth Arts International. 

Why hire a doula?

During labor your doula will be your advocate.  She will also support you and your partner, ensuring that the laboring mother always has what she needs.  The postpartum doula assists in the transition of the family after birth.  She is there to answer questions and help the family in both a physical and an emotional capacity. 

A Doula Does Not...

Provide medical advice or assistance.  She does not take the place of the partner in the labor, delivery or postpartum period, but rather provides continual support so that the mother may always be surrounded by love.
