What Our Clients Have to Say About Us

BENEFITS OF HAVING A DOULA

We will be by your side from the beginning.

A Doula offers support from the time a family books their care, through the end of services. This might be the entire length of pregnancy, or just a few weeks (or even days) before labor, depending on when a family reaches out.

A Birth Doula will meet with you during your pregnancy to hear your desires, share info and build your relationship. Once contractions begin, your Doula will physically, emotionally and informationally support you and others on your birth team during the labor and delivery process. Post birth, they will make a minimum of one follow-up visit at your home to check in, help with processing your birth story, answer questions, and share any postpartum and newborn related tips and suggestions they have to offer.

Studies have shown that having a Doula often lessens time spent in labor, reduces the laboring mothers’ anxiety, lowers the rate of medical interventions (including Cesarean births) and typically improves the mothers’ perception of her birth in a more positive way.
