As your Labor Doula, I will help you stay strong and calm during labor to ensure a safe and satisfying birth experience. I draw on my knowledge, CAPPA training and experience to provide you with the physical, emotional and informational support you need. I use a lot of massage to help with comfort, positioning, birth balls, rebozo and other relaxation techniques.
Unforeseen things can come up during labor and I will educate you on how to handle these concerns while still maintaining control of your experience as much as possible. As your doula, I am working for you directly, not your caregiver or hospital/birth center.
