"Every woman is a gift when she becomes a daughter. Every woman is special when she becomes a wife. Every woman is a God when she becomes a mother."

Doula Services
Why get a Doula?
  • If you have a desire to have a natural birth (decrease need for pain medication and other interventions)
  • To have a higher satisfaction with birth outcomes
  • To reduce the length of your labor and birth
  • To engage & support your  partner in the labor and birthing process (Partner as an active part of the process instead of just an "eye-witness")
  • And so much MORE!!
What if I told you about something that could decrease your chance of a c-section, vacuum or forceps assisted delivery? What if I explained that the same thing could also make you less likely to use medication during your delivery process? Then I sat you down and went even further saying that it could decrease your laboring time by an average of 2 hours and ensure that you have a satisfying birth experience?!! Well a Doula can do all of this and more.

The word "doula" comes from the ancient Greek meaning "a woman who serves" and is now used to refer to a trained and experienced professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to the mother and her family before, during and just after birth.
A doula also educates mother and partner about the pregnancy and childbirth process. They help the family understand all of their options so that they can make informed decisions. A doula will collaborate with both partner and doctors/nurses to ensure that all of the families needs are met. Advocation is another big part of what a doula does, ensuring that the informed decisions that the family have made are being heard, respected and carried out.
