doula services

If interested, please complete the contact form, ideally before third trimester.

Doula means woman's servant in Greek. Doulas promote "high-quality labor and postpartum support as an effective means to improve maternal and child health” (according to DONA International). A doula’s job is to advocate for and support you before, during and after birth, by providing emotional and physical support, as well as quality information for you and your partner.

Doula services: assure constant companionship during labor, decreasing the length of labor so it's easier; improve the birth experience for you and partners; enhance bonding between you and your child; nurture your family by easing the transition into parenthood; and overall help you and your baby be healthier and happier during this sacred time.
