Description: What is a Doula?
A Birth Doula is person who attends to women in labor.  The initial consultation is free.  During this consultation we can talk about what your hopes are for the birth of your little one.  After this I offer 2 prenatal consultations, 24/7 phone support, 24/7 labor support 2 weeks surrounding your due date.  I typically stay with the client 1-2 hours postpartum or when baby has successfully nursed. 

Why Hire a Doula?
Women supported by a doula
during labor have been shown to have:
  • 50% reduction in
    Cesarean rate
  • 25% shorter labor
  • 60% reduction in epidural requests
  • 40% reduction in Pitocin use
  • 30% reduction in analgesic use
  • 30% reduction in forceps delivery

Six weeks
after birth, mothers who had doulas experienced:
  • Less
    anxiety and depression
  • More confidence with the baby
  • More satisfaction with their partner

benefits of using a doula:
  • Improved breastfeeding
  • Increased time spent with baby
  • More positive maternal assessments of baby's personality and
    health, and maternal competence
  • Decreased postpartum depression
Is a Doula only for Mothers planning a natural birth?

No!  I attend all women no matter there birth choice.  I attend women in Hospitals and at Home.  If you are planning a c-section there are still steps you can take to ensure that you have the best experience possible in the hospital.

My current fee is $200.  Please do not hesitate to meet me if finances are of concern.  We may be able to work out a plan that fits both our needs.
