DOULA SERVICES

A doula is an important support mechanism for a woman during labor & birth. A doula will be there early on during labor if the laboring woman requests her to be. A doula can provide support while a woman labors at home before deciding to go to the hospital or birth center as well. A doula will be able to tell you if this is “real labor” or not and  make suggestions as when to transition to the place of birth. As labor progresses she will provide comfort techniques such as massage, aromatherapy and a comforting/reassuring voice. The doula will aid in the involvement of the father as well. She will also stay for a few hours after birth to assist in the baby’s first latch and make sure mom and baby are well adjusted before she leaves. Our doulas provide women with 1 prenatal visits and 1 postpartum visit, in addition to your labor support.
