The good stuff

Let me help you on your journey

From birth planning and evidence-based childbirth education to birth and postpartum support, I am here to help you every step of the way. My role is to provide you with the information, tools and resources you need to have a satisfying birth experience – no matter what that looks like.

Pregnant people who have doula support are less likely to deliver prematurely, less likely to deliver low birthweight babies, and more likely to initiate breastfeeding. They also have less stress and are less likely to have postpartum mood disorders. Doulas also help partners become more confident in helping their pregnant person through their journey. 

 

Private classes available!

why should i hire a doula?

A doula can help you and your birth partner have a positive and safe birth experience:

  • During labor, a doula can take over coaching now and then to give your birth partner a break.
  • When desired, a doula can completely free the birth partner from coaching tasks — and from having to remember the instructions from any childbirth classes. They can enjoy the process and focus on supporting you emotionally.
  • Studies show that pregnant people who use a doula have shorter labors, are less likely to need a C-section, request less pain medication, and have a more positive childbirth experience.
  • Pregnant people who used doulas after birth have a great chance of success with breastfeeding
When should I hire a doula?

It’s never too early or too late to hire a doula, however, it’s best to get one as soon as you know you will want one. You should have a goal of hiring someone by week 20.

What forms of payment are accepted?
