The birth experience is transformative, powerful, influential and is a lifelong memory.  A positive experience enhances relationships and health for the entire family. A Birth Doula or a well-prepared Labor Companion, provides continuous emotional, physical and educational support to the birthing person and partner to make birth a positive, safe, memorable and empowering experience. A Birth Doula or Labor Companion regulates and supports all of the birthing person's emotional and physical needs which allows the birthing person to be in the best state possible to meet, regulate and support their new baby or babies. 

 

The Doula or Labor Companion's positive presence at a birth highly promotes initial nurturing and bonding between parents and infant.  This positive presence: facilitates positive mental health for the infant, significantly reduces the incidence of postpartum depression and anxiety for parents, and improves the relationship between birthing person and partner.  Amazingly, studies have measured these effects weeks after birth and the memories have a lifelong impact.    

 

We provide two options for birth support.  We provide the full services of a Birth Doula including prenatal birth preparation, birth support and postpartum support.  We also provide a service to prepare, educate and support a partner, friend or relative who wishes to fill the role as a Labor Companion.   

 
 

“If a doula were a drug, it would be unethical not to use it.”
