Service Plan & Map

Birth Services

The support you need begins even before the contractions start. As your doula, I’ll meet with you ahead of time in order to fully understand the type of birth experience you want.  Together, we’ll build a virtual tool box filled with things to help you along your journey.  During labor, you can count on my continuous support in many forms, bringing calm confidence to your birth experience.  I will utilize my training, tools, and years of experience to sustain you and your wishes.

Please note, doulas are not doctors or midwives, and do not practice medicine.  Doulas do not diagnose nor treat pregnancy or postpartum related symptoms. Information presented in our meetings and conversations is not intended as a substitute for the medical advice of a properly licensed healthcare professional. In addition, Doulas do not make specific health claims or promise medical results. We provide education and guidance, as well as pregnancy, labor, postpartum, and breastfeeding support.
