Did You Know?

With the warm, nurturing support of a Postpartum Doula, the chance of experiencing postpartum depression is significantly lowered. Having a calm, non-judgmental, helpful caregiver present to answer questions, give breaks, model baby care, give referrals, and to simply listen, helps empower parents to feel confident in their new roles.

Having continuous labor support from a professional labor doula can increase the likelihood of having a spontaneous vaginal birth. Their support also lowers the use of pitocin and pain medications. I am happy to recommend a few trusted fellow labor doulas if you are in search of an educated and experienced support person to join your birth team.

Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers - strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.
