My Birth Philosophy
Whether in a hospital, birth center or at home, I provide calm, knowledgeable guidance through one of the most intense, emotional and beautiful moments of your life.
I base my support on your wishes and concerns, and focus on finding strength and composure during the birth experience. This includes both physical and emotional support to you and your partner. Whether that’s through gentle touch or verbal comfort, I guide you through the different stages of labor, helping you to connect inward and feel confident in your body.
What is a Doula?
A doula is a trained professional who provides continuous support to a mother before, during, and just after birth. She uses comfort measures such a breathing, relaxation, movement and positioning to help mom better cope with labor. She provides continuous reassurance and support; never leaving mom’s side and doesn’t change shifts.
The doula supports both mom and partner and works to strengthen that bond during the birthing process. She never replaces the important role of a partner.
