As certified birth doulas, we have over 35 years of combined experience. We want you to have the birth experience you want and will work with you and your partner to achieve those goals! A birth doula empowers you by working with you prenatally to gain knowledge of the birth process, help with birth planning, and as an advocate for you. A birth doula will then provide continuous support during your labor by offering emotional and physical support. The doula is there to be a team player along with your healthcare provider and any other support people you have chosen to be by your side on this special day.
The birth experience is something that will stay with you for a lifetime and shape your relationship with your child and those around you. Women have an inner power that is not always known until they give birth. Studies have shown that by having a birth doula by your side there is less chance of interventions, shorter labors, less chance of a cesarean, better breastfeeding and better bonding for the entire family.

Bringing baby home is an exciting time filled with a lot of "firsts". Having a postpartum doula to help you walk through this transition can be very beneficial for the parents, baby and other family members. The postpartum doula meets with the family once prenatally to find out their needs and then joins them after the baby is born. Based on the families needs, the postpartum doula will offer education, companionship and nonjudgmental support. She will assist with newborn care, family adjustment, meal preparation and light household tidying. She will offer evidence-based information on infant feeding, emotional and physical recovery from birth, infant soothing and coping skills for new parents and makes appropriate referrals when necessary.
