Unique Doula CAre: Support for your birth year
** I am not attending births at this time. I hope to restart in 2019!
For me, being a great doula is all about relationships. Yes, doulas know plenty of tips and tricks, but in the end what really matters is how a doula makes you feel. When working with me, you will gain friend who will deeply listen, offer empathy, and support without any judgement. I have years of experience, guiding hundreds of women through pregnancy as a prenatal yoga teacher. I am an experienced Momma and professional doula. I know what women need during this important time in their lives. I aim to cultivate a deeply trusting relationship with my clients, so that they can do the necessary inner-work to open up to birth and motherhood.
My clients are the "high fact-finder" types, who do their research. My clients are smart, and they are planners. They've read about the high c-section rates, but they feel safer in a hospital. They know a doula can help them avoid unnecessary interventions, but what else can a doula help them with?
As a birth and postpartum doula, I work intensely with my clients for their whole birth year. I act as your personal guide through the pregnancy and birth process. I provide both you and your partner with important birth information, empowering you with evidenced-based information in the world of routine based care. Emotional support is vital during this time. I will nurture you and your partner through fears and concerns, uplifting both of you to feel fully supported and heard. With yoga as my background, I bring a unique perspective to doula work. I offer private prenatal and postnatal yoga for integrated support on both sides of the birth year. I provide physical support through my knowledge of anatomy, breath work, and labor positions, helping to shorten your labor and inspire trust so that you feel unity with your body and baby. I believe birth is a team effort! I will provide support, while never taking over or getting in the way. I will enhance the intimacy between you and your birth partner. After birth, the journey has only just begun! I help start the breastfeeding relationship, and assistant in processing this life-changing experience. I am here for you during your postpartum period and fourth trimester. You can call on me anytime.
If you are looking for a doula who is like a birth-best friend you do yoga with... we might be a good match!
