As your doula, working with you is all about...
While midwives, obstetricians and nurses are busy with the clinical aspects of birth, I remain by your side throughout labor to help preserve a quiet, intimate atmosphere conducive to a gentle, peaceful birth. Depending in your needs, this may mean minimizing interruptions, dimming lights, playing soft music, or temporarily moving to the periphery of your birth space.
It is my goal to help make you and your partner feel informed, prepared and at ease as you navigate your path from pregnancy to parenthood. Caring for your well-being begins antenatally as you and your partner work together to define your birth vision and communicate your wishes with your care provider. During labor I stand beside you, and behind you, providing comfort and gentle assurance as you define your own path to birth.
