The doula's purpose is to help women have a safe, memorable and empowering birthing experience. A doula is a professional trained in childbirth who provides emotional, physical and informational support to the mother who is expecting, is experiencing labor, or has recently given birth.


A doula is a calming presence who gives support and touch in a healing and useful way, and also provides useful tips for laboring and birthing and postpartum care.

As a Doula, I Offer:

Free Consultation
