Birth Doula Services

A labor doula is a trained and experienced professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to the mother before, during and just after birth.  Birth can be a pivitol moment in a woman's life and I do not take lightly the priveledge of being asked to come along side the journey or birth.  Because of this, building relationship of trust and communication is an intentional aspect of the support a Doula should provide.

"She laughed with us, made us rest when we could, and never once made us feel like she wasn't present in the moment. And when I pushed my daughter out, she was at the other end of her rebozo I was holding on to for traction, and I will forever remember and be grateful it was her and not someone else. We love you Molly."
