Birth Support

We believe there is no “right” or “wrong” way to birth and that the only “right” way to birth is your way.

 However, we also understand how overwhelming and confusing it can feel to constantly have friends, family, and social media telling you otherwise. Maybe you feel like no matter how much you prepare, you still have so many unanswered questions, if not more. You want to know what your options are in order to create the most satisfying birth experience, but you aren’t sure how to put everything together. Don’t worry, we get it, and we are here.
You deserve to feel supported by someone focused on you. Someone who carefully listens to your thoughts, feelings, and words, without judgment or any agenda. A confidant and friend, who genuinely cares about how you feel and how to best support you and your partner. An expert who compassionately answers your questions and crafts your vision into a plan you feel confident with.

That friend and expert is one of our doulas.

How Will a Birth Doula Support Me?

Educational Support
The unpredictability of birth creates a lot of questions and nerves that can result in feeling fearful and powerless. We believe the first step towards feeling confident is being informed. Our birth doulas walk alongside you and your partner to answer all of your questions with evidence-based education and years of experience, because knowing your choices and how to make the right decisions for your family, brings the power back to you.
Emotional Support
The journey through pregnancy, birth, and early parenthood is full of emotions, from intense joy and excitement, to nerves and fear. We validate and honor this experience with gentleness, compassion, and understanding. Imagine having an unbiased, knowledgeable friend and expert standing with you and your partner through it all. Our doulas will be your constant, because serving you is a privilege.
Physical Support
As your body progresses through pregnancy and labor, your physical needs will change. We understand that these changes can be scary and uncomfortable. Don’t worry! Our birth doulas are prepared with a toolbox of knowledge to support your changing needs and sensations, bring relief and validation, and guide your partner in different comfort techniques. We promise you don’t have to memorize that birth book!
