Birth Doula

The word "doula" comes from ancient Greek meaning "a woman who serves."

A doula is a non-medically trained person that is an educational, emotional and physical support, before pregnancy, during labor and shortly after birth. 

Research shows that women who use a birth doula are:

  • less likely to need Pitocin

  • less likely to have a cesarean birth

  • less likely to use any pain medication

  • more likely to rate their childbirth experience positively

Why I Dou-la

I decided to start the process of attaining my certification to become a DONA International Doula earlier this year. I had strong encouragement from many family and friends. 

I have a true passion for women and infant health. I personally wish I had known about doula services when I delivered my children. The continuous support while in labor would have been so beneficial to understanding what part of labor I was in and different comfort measures I could have used. 

 

While in my doula workshop I was given child birth education that I can pass on to my clients. I have learned different comfort measures for mom during labor. Training also focused on helping mom correct a malpositioned baby as well as different relaxation methods to get mother and birth partner through labor and delivery. I also received training on how to support a mother that has had an epidural or a cesarean. 

 

There is a misconception that doula's only are necessary for women wanting drug free labor. That is not true. I will affirm, educate and support you in any outcome of your birth. 

 

I believe Doulas for ALL!
