Labor Doulas

Doulas provide physical, education and emotional support? But what does that all mean?

We’re so glad you asked!

Physically – Your doula is physically present during labor. She will utilize her knowledge of physical comfort measures to help ease the discomfort of labor. She will encourage and assist you with positional changes, massage, breathing techniques and more. She will prevent you and your partner from feeling alone and unknowing.

Educationally – Think of your doula as your own personal “birth google” with access to instant information. She is studied and certified in all areas of supporting birth.

Emotionally – Your doula understands the full spectrum of emotions that labor and birth can trigger. She is prepared to help you process those emotions and allow you the space to comfortably experience them as you and your partner transition into parenthood.

Postpartum Doulas

You‘ve just given birth to your baby or babies. You come home from the hospital after just 48 hours. Your family lives out of town and your friends who have had babies are excited to come and see you, but they are hoping to just hold the baby when they come. You are tired, perhaps a little nervous and ultimately just want to be the most perfect parents on Earth.

IN WALKS YOUR POSTPARTUM DOULA! She gently greets you and her expertise puts you at ease. She immediately helps you get the baby to breast, makes you a cup of tea and gets the dishwasher loaded…

Calorie Intake While Breastfeeding

Do you know what the recommendation is for increasing your calorie intake while breastfeeding? I bet you won’t believe it when I tell you… Hold on tight! It’s not the equivalent of pancakes with bacon and sausage smothered in maple syrup, followed by a giant chicken parmigiana and spaghetti dinner (for lunch) and a bacon cheeseburger with fries and a chocolate shake for dinner. Oh, and dessert after every meal… . . .

I Watched You Become a Father

I am a doula. I stand in the space of birth while reducing fear and instilling strength and I watch as you become a father. I have been on the other end of the phone when you nervously called me to say, “She is ready for you to come now…” I have been greeted by you at the door of your home and I have seen the look of relief . . .
