Doulas have a very unique position on the birthing team. We are there to care for your emotional and physical needs in a way that medical professionals do not have time to do. The value of my presence as a birth doula lies within my belief that how you are made to feel during this pivotal moment in your life is one of the most important aspects of your birth. Through compassion, calmness, and knowledge my presence serves to reinforce your inner wisdom, and support you in achieving the birth you desire.
Attending women and partners at this point in their lives provides me with the exceptional sight of women becoming mothers and couples becoming families. In providing labor support I am not only there for you, but also your partner. This is usually a deeply emotional time for all involved, and to support someone you love during labor can be a very intense experience. My calm and encouraging presence always extends itself to your partner. Reinforcing their connection with you, as well as their inner knowing of how best to serve the woman they love.
