Doula...say it with me. Dooo-laah! That's right. And we're some mutha luvin' Muva Luvas over here! What's a doula, you ask? A doula is a trained birth companion, partner and coach. Our entire job is to focus on you! Empowering you to be the amazing woman you are, helping you tap into your inner feminine strength and trust your body, is what we do best!!

Birth and Postpartum Doulas support you and your family as you navigate the wonderful, transformational, experience of having a baby and ease the transition thereafter. 

The support I felt during my own birth was everything I never knew I needed. I felt so empowered, I never once doubted that I was capable of birthing my baby. They were there to provide my husband with tools, so that he felt confident to support me through each contraction. The warmth and safety that I felt, is something that I want to give to each and every woman I work with!

As your Birth Doula, I will:

  • Provide constant emotional and physical support, for you during labor and our time working together.

  • Offer educational classes, that will prepare you for baby's arrival.

  • Provide herbal care to help relieve pain and other pregnancy related ailments.
